My fiancee and I have been together almost a year. We both love each other very much and we both feel very connected. I do not have any children, but he has three kids- ages 4,8,11. the younger two we have shared parenting with, and the third every other weekend. He has good communication for the children with both exes and is a good dad. My problem is, everyone around me, mostly just family, is warning me about marrying into three children. I am 25 and he is 31 and we plan to marry next summer. Getting my parents on board with this has been difficult, because they do not like the fact that he has so many kids. he is willing to have more kids with me, when I'm ready (currently in nursing school, so would prefer to wait a little bit). I am very involved with the children, and do have them frequently on my days off from work or school, but he is very good about taking them to babysitter if I have plans or need a break, which I appreciate. I guess I just need an unbiased opinion on this.
