Stepfamily-courtship Danger SignsMillions of average U.S. stepfamily couples re/divorce or endure daily misery because they didn't know their risks and made unwise commit-ment choices. Common RED LIGHTS:
Partners and/or ex mates having many of these false-self traits
Excessive urgency to cohabit and/ or re/wed - dating less than 18-24 months.
A bioparent saying "My child/ren will always come first with me."
Recent or chronic major ex-mate hostility and conflict.
Assuming significant stepfamily-member dislikes or antagonisms will improve.
Many recent major life changes
A history of unsuccessful or no intimate adult relationships.
Prior romantic/sexual affairs.
Any co-parent having major debts.
Partners ignoring self-improvement Les-sons 1 thru 7 or equivalent
Past or current ex-mate court bat-tles and/or police involvements
Past or current adult or child ad-dictions.
Kids with major health, school, social, and/or parental problems
Co-parents keeping major secrets
Partners often avoiding conflicts and repressing emotions
Any co-parent denying their step- family identity and what it means.
A partner ignoring major doubts or ambivalence about re/marriage
The more of these signs courting couples have and ignore, the higher their odds of eventual psychological or legal re/divorce.
