  • This book was really not great. To spend all that space simply trying to prove or disprove another's theory, really? Some original research would have been great. Also, this book strayed from the points it was making often. Lastly, it would have been great to spotlight a few couples who made it, instead of mostly just failures and/extreme cases.


  • When my therapist recommended I read some books on blended families, I grudgingly went to the library. Grr, don't want to get married, don't want a family, don't see why this has to be my problem, don't want to blend shit! Mutter mutter mutter.But the fact is, nobody's writing books for the long-suffering girlfriends of people with kids; I was lucky to even find anything on blended families. And this book really helped.It's funny, almost everything in here seems blindingly obvious when you read [...]


  • This is one of my favorite and frequently recommended books about stepfamily life. We tend to create our blueprint of "family" based on first family dynamics - couple meets, gets to know each other, falls in loves, marries, has kids and raises them equally together with little to no influence from outsiders. Stepfamily life turns all that on its ear. Many remarried couples don't have time to get to know each other without the role of parent as a prevalent one, and relationships with former spous [...]


  • I cannot say enough how much I LOVED and appreciated this book. I wish I had read it five years ago, but, alas, I may have missed the high points. Every one, I mean everyone in a remarriage situation should read this. Many family/marriage counselors have no idea how handle families like mine--this would be a great starting point.


  • Fascinating look at remarried couples and the issues they face as blended families. Sources of conflict include: money, parenting step-children, living arrangements, insider/outsider status.I really enjoy reading social science books about families, parenting, and relationships and this is a good, thought provoking, informative, concise book in that genre.


  • A definite and strong addition to my growing step-family bookshelf. Echoes the brilliant and even-handed work of Patricia Papernow.


  • Great Book!This book has definitely hit home on a couple issues that my fiancĂ© and I have been going through. There are definitely obstacles you don't think about when going into a second marriage. However, this will be my first marriage and his second this book is absolutely relevant, well rounded, and easy to read. It has help shed light on underlying issues but it has also shown we have been doing a lot of things right! Highly recommend for step families to read!
