Hello i just want to know who comes first in role of a marriage with children, i know the bible says the spouse then the children, although i believe it can all be balanced,
i have 3 children from a previous marriage and i love them with all my heart and do everything with them, now i got married again she has 5 children 2 lives with us, i have 50% custody of my children, she has her 2 with us full time,
i am so frustrated, please help me understand, i think we all should be first, i just want to know in this case where we do not have children together what is the order, should there even be one.

i love my time with my children and i try so hard to make my new wife as happy too

i have so much to say please help

i think it is VERY important to distinguish between wants and needs. the wants of the spouce IMO should come before wants of children. NEEDS of the children should come before the NEEDS of a spouce.
