    What matters is love. I would only enter into such a marriage if all parties involved had love for each other though.

    If I was in love with the person, then I would have no hesitation. I would take it slowly for the sake of the kids, and include them in various stages of planning the wedding. I am in a similar situation at the moment and my partner and I hope to get married in a year or so. It is important that the children are made clear from the start that you are not trying to take the place of the absent parent. Break ups and meeting new partners do affect kids, but if you are open and honest with them and an effort is made on both sides, it should all go smoothly. Hope this helps.

    why not. i have 5 kids between 2 women but only 2 of them are actually biologically mine. my wife has 3 kids and they look at me as though i'm their dad because their real dads are losers who don't see them because they don't want to have to pay support. it's sickening.

    Yes, If he was the man I desired to marry, it wouldn't matter how many children he had (Although I may be conserned if he had several children to several different women).

    Most definitely. All depends on whether the kids actually bother you. If you have to ask the question, then they just might be int he back of your mind in a negative manner and you shouldn't rush it.

    Recommended considerations:

    Understand that love, in and of itself, will not keep a marriage together. There are literally hundreds of couples who love each other even AFTER the divorce. Love is an emotion and it is relative. Its meaning is different for each person. And, love cannot support a marriage alone. It needs the help of your God given intelligence and wisdom.

    Keep in mind that who you marry will have a dramatic impact on all aspects of your life; spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health. Marriage is serious business and should be given serious thought. It is not optional, it is obligatory.

    The expectations you have of each other in regards to child rearing, finances, faith posture, family and friends, dealing with conflict and so forth should be among your priority discussions BEFORE tying the know.

    Peace and blessings!

    Children play a large role in any couples lives, and need to be considered when meeting someone new. That being said, if you feel that you can become a happy extended family, I see no reason not to marry any darn body that you want. Children are blessings to be cherished and not just another responsibility, I would get married again in a heartbeat if I truly loved the person I was wanting to betroth, and it wouldn't matter if we started another "Brady Bunch" big_smile...W

    It depends on that person, how old she or he is, and the other parent of those children. There are so many factors to consider.

    No, guys are often marrying girls with a bunch of kids, what is with that? Are they nuts? Maybe they are on Medicaid, I don't know but sure do wonder, is there any time for romance? Lot of questions on that.

    Firstly, you have to know the person well enough including the 2 kids. If the kids are young then you must form a relationship with them and let them know that you will be part of the family if you marry their parent.

    Having the acceptance from the kids are important as not to complicate the situation when you decide to tie the knot.

    I believe that if everyone in the family accepts you then I see no reason why you should not be marrying unless there is no love.

    Love always works in a mysterious way and it is love that makes a person alive.
