“I love him, but not his kids.”

This is the title of a step-mother’s confession as posted on http://www.theguardian.com.

“Alex Thomas is a stepmother. When she went public about her feelings – or lack of them – she was vilified. But she is far from alone…As she will tell you, the best-kept secret of step- parenting is that just because you fall for your partner, it doesn’t mean you’ll take to his children. The truth is you’re more likely not…Do I love my stepchildren? reflects Alex 30, a freelance radio presenter. No, I don’t. I don’t feel the same intensity that I do for my partner, parents, or even siblings. But I’m very fond of them.”

Do not let anyone separate your family! Don’t move in with your second wife! Do not commit adultery! Save your first family!
