Sally and Keith have been married and building their stepfamily for just ten months. They say they never realised how difficult it was going to be, and how dramatic the changes would be.
“We just focused on the wedding and all the other stuff was overlooked,” Keith admits. “As we had both been married before it was assumed we knew all about it!
“We were asked just two weeks before the wedding if we had forgiven our ex-partners. We said yes, but wondered what would have happened if we had said no! We did discuss a lot of things together, and have now talked to an older couple, and attended a day conference.”
