Everyone has a different definition of “happily ever after.” To some that means being married to one person for the rest of your life. For others who come from a broken family, it can be starting over again with a new family.
When you have been married before you lose a little confidence in yourself since things didn’t work out as you planned. It can be a little scary starting another relationship. When you have children you have to consider how they will be feeling and be careful about introducing them to somebody new. The average stepfamily takes 5-7 years to bond. Starting a new family takes patience and time.
My husband Jon and I have been married for almost 5 years and have 4 kids between us ranging from 14 years old to 22 years old. In the beginning I was picturing The Brady Bunch and how wonderful everything would be (I never did get an Alice…) and thought it would take a little time to adjust but put pressure on myself to make everybody “happy.” After reading a bunch of books and talking to a few other families that had already been through this, I realized you can’t rush relationships and they need time to develop.
What if there was a way to find out if you are compatible? There is a way. By taking the SYMBIS (Save your marriage before it starts) assessment, you will find out where you and your spouse (or fiancé) stand on topics like Potential unfinished business with your previous marriage, unresolved issues from your past, what concerns you have about blending a family, what strengths you bring to the marriage and how you like to solve problems (among many other areas).
My husband and I took the assessment after we were already married and still benefited from it. There are so many areas that need to be explored to build a healthy marriage.
I recently had a client get engaged over the holidays. One of the things they said was “We learned ways to communicate best for a loving relationship that honors, respects and cherishes each of us…”.
Do you want to see if you and your spouse can have a better marriage? Are there some subjects that you have trouble talking about that you know in your heart need to be discussed? Have you been dating for awhile but are scared to get married because of your previous failed marriage? I am here to help you. I know how hard it is going through a divorce and trying to make sure your kids are doing well. I also know how wonderful it can be falling in love again and starting over… Having a blended family can be hard but it can also be awesome.
See what some of my previous clients have said about how then benefitted from SYMBIS.
