    Approximately one-third of all marriages in America now form a stepfamily.  Family arrangements are different in each situation, but many of the strategies for keeping your marriage strong in a stepfamily involve common skills and techniques that can be used by all couples.

    “The struggle is often how to avoid letting the stressors of the family situation turn into the stressors in your marriage,” explains MMJ’s Shelby Raines. She points outs couples must acknowledge the impact of the past – especially on children – while they still carve out time to make their current relationship solid and secure.

    “When I was 15 my parents got divorced. It changed my life. It still impacts me,” explains Shelby.  “Although I am not ruined or broken – due in no small part to the power of forgiveness and good parenting – the experience of divorce is something I wouldn’t wish on any family and why MMJ wants to help every marriage succeed.”

    MMJ’s presentation, led by Shelby Raines, will explore how building a strong marriage in a stepfamily setting includes looking truthfully at the family situation while committing to a healthy and hopeful marriage.
