Which Book Title Appeals to You

russ1204September 15, 2010

Hey everyone

I'm coming up to five years in my second marriage. I gained an instant family of two beautiful step-daughters to complement their gorgeous mom. I didn't have any children from my first marriage of 23 years, so having young girls (ages 14 and 7) now at my age (56) has been an EXPERIENCE! (caps fully intended - you all know exactly what I mean, right?)

I've been journaling this wonderful experience and now I'm thinking of putting my insights out there for others in similar situations (considering a second marriage with children where you had none before)

I've got five possible titles. I would appreciate if you pick your favorite or suggest another title that you think more appropriately addresses this particular situation:

1

My Daddy Says

How THEIR Kids Can Make or Break YOUR Second Marriage

2

Remarried... With Children

Are You Really Ready for An Instant Family?

3

Love Me, Love My Kids

What to Do When Your Dream Relationship Shows Up... with Kids

4

Step Right This Way

Strengthen Your Second Marriage Through Your Stepchildren

5

I Do... Again

Avoiding the Pitfalls of a Second Marriage with Kids

6

All the best from Toronto,

Agreed, but #3 first, then #1.
If you go with #1, I'd not go ALL CAPS on Their and Your, but rather a distinction that's a bit more subtle.

I like #1 and #3 combined, as in My Daddy Says - What to do when your dream relationship shows up, with kids. The "THEIR kids" part makes it sound like a book geared towards the kind of step-parents that are looking for ways to sabotage their spouses relationship with their children.

#5 might unintentionally limit the audience; there are plenty of people who were never previously married, and whose new spouse has children.
