Protecting Our Children from Failure

My son and his girlfriend got engaged this week. It was a celebratory moment for all of us. We knew he was going to propose. As a matter of fact, he asked our advice before he bought the ring.

My husband and I spent about an hour and a half explaining all we could about marriage and relationships and divorce and the complexity of remarriage (we blended our families almost 11 years ago), and then he thanked us and went out and bought the ring.
