Many respondents, who ranged in age from 25 to 50, said they did not want to be a stepparent to a boy because Chinese families are traditionally expected to provide an apartment for a son before he can get married, which is an economic burden. She said that in her experience, men will refuse a potential spouse with a son from a previous marriage unless the woman is wealthy.

The paper provides a brief overview of the research literature on the impacts of family structure and family change on child outcomes, with a particular focus on parental separation. It takes as a starting point the existence of pervasive associations between family change and child outcomes and addresses a range of issues that are examined in the research literature. Do family changes primarily have short-term impacts on children, or do they also have more enduring impacts? How does remarriage affect child outcomes? What impact do frequent changes of family structure have on child outcomes? What are the mechanisms that link family structure and family change to child outcomes? How much of the impact is attributable to income changes consequent on parental separation?
Here's the truth: dating while divorcing with young kids is complicated. It's complicated, and messy, and full of panicky meltdowns where you turn the manual sideways and wonder if you're actually doing it all wrong. But surprisingly, despite the enormous amount of people in this position, my recent Google searches on dating with kids post-divorce have turned up next to nothing on the subject. There are lots of lists, of course, indicating the appropriate time to introduce your new partner to your children and how to do so smoothly. But I couldn't find any brutally honest testimonials describing the way to be both a single mom and a girlfriend without screwing everything and everyone up in the process. I should probably start by saying I believe whole-heartedly that there is nothing wrong with dating when you have kids.
