Ron: What if I told you that couples in blended families have a particular vulnerability that couples in first marriages don’t have. Would you want to know what it is?

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

Ron: I’ve researched this. Stepfamilies have an Achilles heel that undercuts their ability to love and trust. For someone who has already been through one divorce, the fear of another or worrying about your spouse’s commitment predicts with 93% accuracy whether you have a strong, stable marriage, or a fragile, unhappy one.

Proverbs 6 tells us that jealousy arouses a spouse’s anger and jealousy is just what happens when fear and worry have their way. If you’re in a blended family, it’s essential that you find ways of casting out fear or it may sabotage trust and steal your ability to serve your mate. You can do this. We want to help.

For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
