Moving in with children too - opinions please


Recommended Posts

You can see why I am asking from my other threads on the parenting forum if you wish, as my childrens father is moving in (with my children) with a woman he met for the first time 4 months ago....but I thought I would ask here in a more general sense...

 

What do other people think about moving in with a new partner?

 

When is too soon?

 

What if both people have children that are resident with them?

 

Can you know someone enough after 4 months to know that living with them and their child and your own children will work?

 

What if ALL the children involved will also be making a move to a new school and town?

 

These questions are on my mind a lot! And Im wondering what others think...

i think thats too early in just about any relationship but if there are kids involved, it SUPER way too early. at 4 months you know...pretty much nothing. you have figured out what their favorite soda is but thats not very helpful in reality..

 

also, its hard for kids to change schools. if this doesnt work out [at 4 months. i doubt it] they will have to change AGAIN when your ex moves out of the situation.

that is way too soon. my son didnt meet my fiance until 6 months into dating, now after 2 yrs of dating we are finally going to move in with eachother. it takes sometime to get a kid to adjust to having a new person in their life, especially under one roof.

Man, it took 4 months before my BF and I even told our kids we were dating (!) We're planning to move in together now, but it's been 2 years. Moving in with someone after 4 months is ridiculous no matter what, but esp. stupid when you're dragging kids along for the ride.
