A: Perhaps your biggest challenge will be how to relate to each other's children. The basic rule of harmony
As to how to form a strong and lasting life together, your most powerful tools are awareness and acceptance. You are now aware of the goodness in each other's hearts. And what you are seeing in each other is real; it is there. Write down what you see now so that when you are tempted to forget, you can take the list out and remember what God sees in each of you. The other and perhaps less obvious tool is acceptance. You must learn not only to see each other clearly but to accept each other exactly as you are. The key to a great love relationship is not that the two people are superior individuals with special attributes and talents. The key is that they are at peace with what they see. To come to this point takes great patience and much practice. So remind yourself often that God loves your partner, and God doesn't make mistakes.
If you use this or some other agreed-upon technique for resolving issues, if you're tolerant of each other's children, and if you consistently practice acceptance and forgiveness, you will begin to build an unshakable bond that will bless you and your children and will represent the love God has for both of you.
