I firmly believe that when you marry while you have children (under 18) from previous relationships that the union is as much as about the children as the bride and groom as it binds you all together as a family. As such any wedding plan should include the children’s needs as much as your own.
What are your opinions and experience re this?
Problems that may arise when you re-marry with kids involved
I know from friends and stories I have read on Facebook that many issues can arise when you re-marry while having children from previous relationships not least problems with the ex.
The ex may not allow your children to attend the wedding or may put up barriers and objections.
You may want to invite relatives and friends of your ex who you remained close to, but your new partner won’t allow it.
Your children may not want to attend your wedding.
The bride or grooms family may not recognise your children as part of the relationship and may be ignoring them and leaving them out of family gatherings.
