HELP:- I am a man in my early forties, I have 2 children a boy and girl aged 11 and 7. I was previously married and split up with my ex wife of 17 years around 4 years ago. 2 years ago just before my father died I found out she had been seeing someone for 6 months behind my back and she then told me she was divorcing me. The divorce went through taking around 2 years. This was now Jan 2013. I must point out at no point in the marriage had I at any point ever cheated or ever would on anyone. In the march I then met an amazing lady who had just been divorced and had 2 amazing girls aged 5 and 9. After my house sold and my ex got most of the money I had to move away due to work and eventually in with my new lady and her children. I treat her children as my own and love them all dearly. I now see my children every other weekend having to drive 240 miles every other fri night then back again on the sun night. I am now getting married in may this year. I love my wife to be to bits and her kids, all the kids get on very well together but my children don't really speak to my new lady and she has problems bonding with them. We also have the problem as we only have a 3 bed house one of her kids has to sleep on a matress on the floor. This situation is really stressing out my new lady sometimes to the point where she thinks it will break us. I know this lady is my best friend and soul mate and total rock I trust totally and she trusts me totally and I know she feels the same about me.I cannot lose her over this. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
