Thoughtful Planning for Blended Families

One woman who was sure her marriage to her daughter's father was "forever," but discovered just how much coping skill was required when she faced divorce. She never spoke ill of her daughter's father, even when she was disappointed and hurting. When a friend commented, she replied, "I once loved him enough to marry him so he must have some redeeming traits. If I want my daughter to grow up happy and well adjusted, I'd best work on remembering what they are!"

That attitude did indeed make a great deal of difference to her daughter who was able to maintain a good relationship with both parents, who in time both remarried. This family, like so many, became a blended family, with new challenges and responsibilities.

You don't need to be Elizabeth Taylor to be married more than once. If you've had more than one spouse, you have special financial and estate planning needs, especially if you have children with each spouse. Neglecting these issues is a surefire way to create a less-than-desired result in the event of illness, incapacity, or death. The best way to have a smooth transition upon disability or death is to create a comprehensive strategy before you aren't able to execute the papers.
