Customer Question

I am wondering if I should consider dating a woman with 3 kids. I am not sure if its a jealousy or if I wonder if I will be different than the last, just having issues.

I think if it is a big issue for you then you should just find someone else who doesn't have kids.

I struggle because I have never met a woman like her and wonder if I am settling if I date her and try to accept the kid thing
Expert:  Dr.G. replied 5 years ago.
I think if the kid thing is an issue right from the get go then it usually does not get easier. Better to cut your ties now then to get overly involved and harbor resentment.

Maybe I should articulate a little better the background. We have been dating 1.5 years, I am in love with her. The kid thing really didnt matter until recently as you are correct it does create animosity.

 

Any further recommendations? Or anything different now that you know we are involved...

 

Thank you!

What exactly is your problem with either the kids or your girlfriend?
