Step Wars: Overcoming The Perils and Making Peace in Adult Stepfamilies : Are your adult children unwilling to accept your loyalties to your new spouse and stepchildren? Did your mother remarry later in life and sign away part of what you feel is your inheritance? Are you worried your stepsiblings will inherit your father's house? Do you dread every family gathering with your adult stepchildren? Does your newly remarried parent's sexuality make you uncomfortable? Are you concerned about who will be your caretaker as you age? As more and more people are remarrying later in life, the resulting avalanche of feelings and situational crises threatens to ruin lives, break down relationships, and create overwhelmingly complicated situations that seem to have no resolution. New family relationships emerge and roles change. Some bonds are broken and new ones are formed as alliances and loyalties shift. Until now, there has been nothing written to help adults navigate this confusing, emotionally wearing terrain. Psychiatrist Grace Gabe and sociologist/social psychologist Jean Lipman-Blumen, authorities on interpersonal relationships and crisis management, and stepparents of adult stepchildren themselves, have written the first practical - and indispensable - guide for every family facing this increasingly common dilemma. Their book is a road map for happily surviving remarriage later in life.
