Stepcoupling:
Creating and Sustaining a Strong Marriage in Today’s Blended Family

by Jennifer Green

First comes a couple, the most important relationship in a blended family. This book focuses on the stepcouple as the foundation of the stepfamily. That foundation must be kept strong and loving.

First comes the couple. It is the foundation of your stepfamily and is the most important relationship you have.

Marriage never comes easy but stepcouples must navigate some tough terrain that first marriages do not have to travel.

This book focuses on the stepcouple.   Knowing the strong and unified stepcouple can resolve all other challenges, is the first step in building a successful blended family.

Different parenting styles, finances, relationships with ex-spouses, legal matters, and children’s issues chisel away at the marriage’s foundation if you don’t keep that marriage your first priority.

Green stresses making “us” time for talking, problem-solving, and weekends away. She convinces that you must enjoy your marriage and constantly renew and strengthen your bond as a couple as a foundation for your family.

Questions and discussion guides lead you to face your own situation. Since the author (a therapist and part of a long-lasting stepcouple) realizes that one answer doesn’t work in every situation, they recommend a variety of options as solutions. 

This is a good book for anyone in or even contemplating remarriage. Let this invaluable remarriage manual help you make your stepcouple the foundation of a strong, happy, and successful stepfamily.
