I'm in my late 40's, single mother of three teenaged daughters (16, 18, 20). I have been divorce for 7 years and my daughters have not had contact with their father for 4 years now. I met a wonderful man two years ago and he also has two teenagers (19, 23) one of each gender. I am very traditional and would like to get married. All of the kids are on board except my 16 year old daughter (the youngest of the crew). She refuses to move and share a house with another family, even though she gets along very well with them. I respect her feelings, and understand that this is not the ideal situation for everyone, but I also don't want her to dictate how I move forward. How do I honor her feelings and get married?
