Ron: My audience is getting more gray.

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

Ron: I’ve noticed a trend at my speaking events. There’s a larger percentage of older couples who are taking another run at love later in life, but realizing that stepfamily living across the generations is not as easy as they thought. A newly married man, 84 years old, widowed nine years, approached me at a seminar. He was worried about his adult daughters. “They didn’t show up at the wedding,” he said, “and they won’t accept my marriage. What do I do?”

Well, you patiently move toward them by yourself initially. You are what they are invested in, not the new marriage—not yet anyway. So, start with you; your wife will have to be patient, too. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
