Stepfamilies are more common than you might think, with over 40% of families in the US including at least one step-parent or stepchild. As a commitment-phobe, taking on a family is pretty daunting. But equally, the idea of having a built-in support system is pretty appealing to me. It’s a ready-made family!
I mean, who needs friends when you’ve got a ready-made family? Of course, I’m also slightly afraid of stepping on toes or accidentally becoming the evil step-parent. Maybe I’ll stick to being the cool, older family member instead. That’s a great way to stay in the family and not worry about relationships!
