Do you keep your step-children's finances separate? I think it must get tricky when two people marry and both have children from prior marriages. Some may live with you full time, part-time, attend college, etc. How do you mange all that and keep things relatively fair?

Got me thinking...

Here's one to ponder.

I raised my X's son since he was 5. I am still his "Mom".

MOH (my forever other half hopefully)has 2 boys. I have 2 daughters plus son above.

If MOH goes? before me, I will be left with his/my stuff (lack of a better word). Rewriting a new will...would "you" include X's son in MOH's assets?

I better discuss this with MOH don't u think?

Good idea Chickadee, never leave anything like this to chance. The hard feelings caused can be horrible. My 2nd. ex passed away leaving a will and everything to his daughter by his first wife and our son and nothing to my son who was his also since he was 4 1/2 years old. I get his widows Social Secutiry benefits. What a mess it could have been, even more than it was anyhow. I am so glad he had a will... [Smile]
