How does a remarriage after divorce affect a family when there’s kids involved? This is the big question most of us ask. Does it need to be nasty? Why can’t we all get along?
Well in a new video, the team over at Soul Pancake interviewed Jamey and Tara, a couple in what’s called a “blended family.” Blended families have children from current and previous relationships. Jamey and Tara divorced after seven years of marriage and have a son, Nakhjavani, together.
Tara is remarried to Jason who’s now Nak’s stepfather. “When I introduce him, I never call him my stepson, I’m like ‘this is my son.'”
Jamey also has a new partner, Natasha.
“I haven’t had the opportunity to really sit down with Natasha and thank her for all the incredible work that she does with my son, She needs to hear it and she needs to know.” Tara says in the video.
SoulPancake helped give both Tara and Jamey an opportunity to sit down face to face with the new stepparents in their child’s life and tell them how they really, really feel.
