So, I had been a single mom for some years. I got divorced and had NOTHING! I lived off food stamps and cash assistance for the first six months after I got divorced. Needless to say it was really hard (as I'm sure most of you know). I finally got a job and started making my own path for my kids and myself. It was an amazing feeling! Then a little over a year ago I met this man, who is absoultey increadable! We dated and things kept gettng more serious, and then he proposed! Without a second thought I said yes, he has a son from a previous marriage and is awesome with my kids.. Oh, and wonderful to me ;)! With all this being said, now comes the issue of combining everything (ie. money, furniature etc.). I remember how hard it was when I got divorced from my kids father, and I dont want to revisit that. I don't want to be pesamistic about this marriage, and I'm not. It's just this little voice in the back of my head telling to be scared... Any thoughts?
