Date Help - Blended Families
For those of you already married, getting married, blended family, etc. - how important is it to give the kids time to adjust to being married?
Not moving in together until after the wedding; a September wedding planned but it is right at the beginning of the school year. Or, our venue has a Memorial wknd open, which would give us all the summer to adjust. However...we both go to school full time and work full time - so a May date is stressful up until then, for planning, finances, etc. Sept. means we can use the summer to finalize details, apts., etc.
Input appreciated. I don't know how much time really is needed the weeks up to the wedding, or if once your major stuff is planned, if you're mostly done. How important is it to have the "off" month for kids to adjust, or what has been your past experiences? Input appreciated. TIA!
