Hi! I'm looking for advice, please help!
My fiancé Bill has two sets of kids...first set is a daughter, Abby (25 yrs) with 4 kids and Amy (21yrs) with 1 kid. Bill and the ex-wife were together more out of convenience, not true love, and stayed together for awhile for the kids. They divorced when Abby was 13.
Bill then moved about 9 hours away...a couple of years later, he started a new life with a woman and had 2 kids; Josh (7yrs) and Jessica (6yrs). They married cause she was pregnant and he was determined to make this work....it didn't. They divorced when Jessica turned 1yr.
I enter the picture 2 years ago...I am divorced with 2 boys, 16 yrs and 12 yrs.
My questions to you are:
Bill feels guilty for leaving Abby and Amy. How can he still know his girls and gkids being 7 hours away?
Bill moved in with me which is 2 hours away from Josh and Jessica. How can he get over that?
With everyone being geographically apart and a wide age distance...how can I help pull this together?
He's a good man, just took him awhile to understand his priorities! Please help!
