Ron: Single parent dating sure is a different animal so, here’s another get smart tip.

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

Ron: Many people ask me how long couples should date before they get married. Well, generally speaking, couples who date a year or longer have a stronger relationship when they marry. This is also true for single parents but keep in mind, just because the couple is ready doesn’t mean the family is. You can have a high quality couple relationship and really have not worked out how you are going to merge your families.

Okay, you want my best advice? Take your time. Take time to date thoroughly and bring the kids along in the process. This may take months, even years, but better to take it slow and progress as a group than move fast and fracture your family.

For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
