  • I get a lot of responses to my resources for stepfamilies. One fairly predictable comment from dating couples is, Ron, are you trying to scare us out of getting married? No, I'm not. But I am trying to prepare you for life. Let me explain this from the other side. A lot of married stepfamily couples say, Ron, where were you 10 years ago? We could have avoided a lot of problems had we known this stuff. If you are a single parent or dating one, I don't want you to say that to me in 10 years.

Ron: What are you doing? Are you trying to scare us?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: I get a lot of responses to my books and videos for stepfamilies. One fairly predictable comment I get from dating couples is, “Gee, Ron, are you trying to scare us out of getting married?” Well, no, I’m not. But what I’m trying to do is prepare you for life.

Let me explain this from the other side. What a lot of married stepfamily couples tell me is this, “Why didn’t someone tell us this before we got married?” Here’s another one. “Ron, where were you 10 years ago? We could have avoided a lot of problems had we known this stuff.” See here’s the deal. If you are a single parent or dating one, I don’t want you to say that to me in 10 years. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
