Both my s.o. and I are recently divorced and have kids from our previous marriages. His youngest being a couple years older than my oldest. Any tips/advice for successfully blending our families? I'm really afraid that our very different parenting styles are going to end up coming between us.

We have been dating for about seven months and are living together. It is serious in that we are currently looking for an apartment big enough so we can have all five kids full time. His two boys and my daughter are with us full time. Come May my two boys will also be with us full time. As far as our parenting styles go, he's very laid back and in comparison I'm much more authoritarian.

How long have you been dating? I wouldn't be worried about blending families till you think it's serious.

Can you describe how your parenting styles are different? Are all the kids with you full time?
