Now this I can agree with. And the word to look for is "available" As I stated before two-parent household long term is very rare nowadays. But! They are out there.
As for me...i'm just a happily married man with kids (all from the same woman and born after our wedding date)
That's great news! I like that. Since you are probably old enough to be my "son, " I will share a bit of a wisdom from experience [married for over 30 plus years with several children in the household] regarding an evolving family life.....always come to the table with two things: partnership and patience. It works wonders for whatever obstacle in your path as parents. And yes, with each child there will challenges but it's supposed to be. That's how they learn....and develop into maturity as you continue to learn as an evolving parent. And then....one day [it will happen real fast] you will suddenly find yourself on the other side of all your hard work. And you and your wife will beam with pride cuz you'll know yall done good with your children. Now as for me? I can't WAIT to be a nana. It's party time. I'm gonna spoiled the grand kids and feed them "sugar" and spice and everything nice....and then....send them home to their parents. Revenge is sweet. But!
