Step-children and your spouse
There is a saying, “If you love the cow you should love the calf”. Meaning, if you love a woman or man you should love the child.
But what happen if the calf is evil and does everything to destroy your relationship and the cow is blind to the truth.
Step children can be good for a relationship but they can be bad for it too. Step children can destroy your marriage or they can make it better.
I have lived and I have seen both sides of step children. I have seen them gotten nothing but love; but all they did was scheme how they can break-up their parent relationship.
Parents you must be aware of your children’s doings. No matter how angelic they are, you need to know your kids especially when they are 17 or 18 years. They aren’t babies.
You have spoiled them that they have become possessive. Cow remember your vow to your spouse. Why do you spend every waking moment with your child? Why do your spouse compete for time to spend with you?
Sleeping together and talking on the phone isn’t time enough for any relationship. Cow! You have robbed your spouse of your love. You need to balance your love and your time. When the calf has gone on its own, who will you have? Not your child but your spouse.
Why wait until your calf has left home? Show respect and love your spouse. Cleave unto your spouse, you are no longer twain but one.
Love your companion and spend time with him/her.
