Love and Happiness It does take a little time for the kids to gain your trust as a step parent, but if you treat the kids with respect, they WILL eventually fall in love with you. If you are loved by many more, you will be much happier.You will also fall in love with the kids because of all the time you spend with them, and all the energy you put into being a great step parent. I was lucky enough to find not only a great wife, but also two amazing and loving children that make me the happiest husband and step parent in the entire universe.Fun and Excitement The definition of fun and excitement itself will change, especially if the new step parent does not have kids.
This can be more fun and exciting than watching a professional team.

You most likely really, really like the woman (or love her) and you are smart enough to realize that with her, comes her children. Same is the case with Scott Trick, Divorced Guy Grinning’s guest blogger.
It's hard enough bringing up children when two parents are on the same team.
Now you have 2 parents who don't live together and 2 Step-Parents/BF/GF all putting their input in to "what's right".
Try dealing with these points: The Ex is a bad influence on the children, The ex cheated which meant the relationship ended with severe strain on the children and spouse who was betrayed, sharing children is NEVER a fun thing....think so?
