Which Book Title Appeals to You

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
Insert Your Own Suggestion

Thank you so much for your kind participation. As a new member here, I've got a lot to share with this forum. I look forward to getting to know you.

All the best from Toronto,
Russ

No idea what Scarlett means, but I'll give you my opinion. I like #1 and #3 the best. Good luck!

hahahah Scarlett...

I like #1 AND #3 the best too.

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.
