Supporting Stepcouples: What Everyone Can Do
About the Guest
Encouragement is important. Help value the couple's relationship and honor their vows. Kids: treat your parent's marriage with respect and find a place for it in your heart. Even if you're conflicted about it at times, treat them the way you would want to be treated. Church: serve stepcouples by providing practical premarital counseling and stepfamily education after the wedding. And couples: serve your own marriage and children by praying together frequently for wisdom to live up to your vows.
When it comes to supporting couples in stepfamilies, everyone can play a part.
