Step Children

Stepchildren

 

Stepchildren are a very large and complicated issue. We want to talk about a particular area of stepchildren and step-parenting as it relates to couples and marriage. When a couple calls for therapy and they state that their primary reason for seeking therapy has to do with the conflict between the stepchild and stepparent, the problem is almost always the same. So, what is the problem?

Divorce

Divorce is one of the largest threats to marriage.

  • Divorce offers a back door and a relatively easy way to escape problem-riddled situation.
  • Divorce also implies that there are situations that cannot be solved.
  • In this model of couples therapy, problems are approached from a perspective that they can be solved and the decision to divorce is frequently made in error.
