Getting married to someone else post-divorce & have joint custody of kids can be a tricky situation for most of the people. The thought itself sounds a little confusing in the first place for many couples.
When you become part of such relationships this may feel a little haphazard but the situations will ease out with the passage of time.
Most of the couples who fit in this scenario have negative thoughts like- such relationship will affect the development of the child. As a result, he won’t like to be around them or stop loving them.
Honestly, this is the last thing you should be worried about if you deal with this situation smartly.
If you are married to someone else having custody of kids from previous marriage, here is how you can manage the conflicts arising.
Talk about your thoughts and plans openly
You were married, had kids, then divorce and now share custody of kids speaks volumes that you have been through a lot in your life. It is obvious you are amongst the smart ones who have sorted out big matters out of the court so that things don’t get worse.
Now is the time you again act with smartness and talk openly and clearly to your present partner and ex about how you would wish the things to go. This will not only give you a chance to express what you are thinking but you will get to read other person’s mind.
Sharing is caring
Being in a relationship where you are sharing the custody of kids can get quite hard some times. Don’t lose hope and to resolve your problems, start sharing responsibilities with each other. Also don’t forget how important it is to take care of every responsibility you are alloted or you choose to take. Divide everything equally to make things work, whether it is attending PTM or pick up from school, buying a fancy dress etc.
Positivity is the key to happiness
Nothing can possibly go wrong if you take everything in your stride. Be positive in any situation. Do what you are supposed to do and don’t run away from your responsibilities. Happiness will surely ring your bell.
