Blending families may find some obstacles as they try to merge as one.

One of these is the stigma attached to divorce. While blended families work towards becoming one, many times, the other biological parents are also involved in the children's lives. In very conservative places, others may frown upon the fact that the parents have gotten a divorce and were not able to work through their issues.

Another factor facing these families is integrating their lives in new locations with different people. Many times, at least one side of the family has to relocate. This means a new school system and new friends. Children have to change their lives and sometimes making new friends is very difficult, especially when a child grows older.

The biggest issue faced by blending families is treating everyone equally. Sometimes, it may seem as if the biological parent favors his own biological children, which makes the step-children feel like they are only second best. The adults in these families need to work really hard to avoid this type of problem.
