I once had a fight with Prince Charming that was worse than our typical spats. We were yelling at each other and saying things best left unsaid. He eventually got his pillow and said he was sleeping on the couch. I asked him to drive the baby and I to my mom’s house (which was empty at the time) because I wasn’t going to stay someplace I wasn’t wanted. We made up the next day and that was that.
When I started writing this blog, I received tons of comments and emails from other stepparents saying they had a ‘plan’ for getting out if things went south. It made me wonder…do all married people do this or is it simply something that happens in blended families?
How many of you have a plan like this? How detailed is it? What events would ‘trip’ the plan?
For myself, unemployed and carless, I’m sort of in a bind. My plan would take years to put into effect.
