Did you ever notice blended family couples don't get a honeymoon? They get a few days together after the wedding but they don't get time together before kids come along. Deuteronomy 24 affirms that couples need time to bond and establish their home. But stepfamily couples don't get that. Instant family means instant responsibilities. They negotiate romance and partnership at the same time. It is what it is. Work at this. Be intentional. It's harder to solidify your marriage but you can do this.

Ron: What’s a wedding, without a honeymoon!

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

Ron: Did you ever notice blended family couples don’t get a honeymoon? Yeah, they get a few days together after the wedding, but what they don’t get is a lot of time together before the kids come along. Deuteronomy 24 affirms the idea that couples need time, perhaps even an entire year, to bond and establish their home. But stepfamily couples don’t get that. Instant family means instant responsibilities. They have to negotiate romance and partnership all at the same time.

Hey, it is what it is. You’re going to have to work at this. So, be intentional. It’s a little harder to solidify your marriage but you can do this. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
