Divorced brides with children will have to celebrate the children birthdays or graduations and other live events at least once in their lives. This would mean that the divorced parents would have to meet. This alone would be enough to make some people’s stomachs filled with butterflies. In addition, there may be some step parents in the picture.
When the wedding is on the full bloom, children special
events such as birthdays would be one of the things that the couples are
waiting for eagerly. But the reality after the couple gets divorce may be the
contrary. When a child’s special event is coming, the divorced couples are
forced to be together. And when they are forced to meet each other and fake the
smile on their faces, the supposedly happy events may be turning into
disasters. The mothers may be worrying that her motherhood may be taken away
from her by the stepmothers, the fathers may be feeling the same way for the stepfathers,
while the stepparents may begin to realize even more that they are the last
persons joining the families.
There is no need to have such a drama. As awkward as it
may be, the children want to have their parents near them and share these happy
moments with them regardless of their separation. What children want to know is
the way they were when they are together. And it is the job of the grownups to
provide them this.
it is not uncommon for the divorced brides to
want the parents to sit together during the wedding. They simply want the
family to be together. It may be something difficult for the parents but they
have to be reminded that this is the special day for the children and that this
would mean so much to them.
