Dear Stepmoms and stepdads.  This is dedicated to you.  Keep up the good work.

“Although the divorce rate for remarriages with children is dramatically higher than that for remarriages without children in the first three year, such marriages, having passed the three-year- mark, are actually more likely to survive than first marriages.

In fact, after about five years, researchers have found, a remarriage with children is more likely to succeed than any other type of marriage.  The extraordinary effort of coping with the ordinary struggles of stepfamily life, it seems, cements couples who do not succumb to the pressures early on.”
