- Remarriage Counseling session consultation

Finances after remarriage are far more complicated than after your first marriage. Each of you will bring good and bad financial habits as well as debt, savings, financial obligations to your previous family in the form of alimony or child support and an individual credit report. You cannot sweep this under the carpet of marriage bliss. So what should you do?

Two individuals approaching the marriage altar must realize that to attain the happy marriage which they hope for, they must know that marriage is not a legal coverall; but it means sacrifice, sharing, and even a reduction of some personal liberties. It means long, hard economizing. It means children who bring with them financial burdens, service burdens, care and worry burdens; but also it means the deepest and sweetest emotions of all.

Before marriage, each individual is quite free to go and come as he pleases, to organize and plan his life as it seems best, to make all decisions with self as the central point. Sweethearts should realize before they take the vows that each must accept literally and fully that the good of the little new family must always be superior to the good of either spouse. Each party must eliminate the “I” and the “my” and substitute therefore “we” and “our.” Every decision must take into consideration that there are two or more affected by it. As she approaches major decisions now, the wife will be concerned as to the effect they will have upon the parents, the children, the home, and their spiritual lives. His choice of occupation, his social life, his friends, his every interest must now be considered in the light that he is only a part of a family, that the totalness of the group must be considered.

Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self—comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pinpricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things which are so wrong. Nothing

There are several problem areas that only blended families face. A few of these are: » Both parent and stepparent do not treat children in the blended family equally. » Many stepparents find it difficult to love their stepchild or stepchildren. » The children are not accepting of the new “parental authority” in the home. » Discipline from a stepparent usually results in frustration, opposition, and disrespect. » The new home has two sets of rules, and two types of discipline. » Children have two homes, with two sets of rules and different methods of discipline. » Extended families do not always accept the new spouse or the stepchildren. Do any of these sound familiar? As we believe that a marriage is always the beginning of a new life.
