I’ve been thinking of bringing my girlfriend home for dinner to meet my teenage son and ten-year old daughter. Their mother and I got divorced more than a year ago and I know our separation has really taken a toll on them, especially my son. I don’t want to jump the gun here, but I’m really into this woman and I think she would make a great mother. I met her through a foreign affair matchmaker company, and we’ve been going out for a few months now. I’m anticipating a negative reaction from my children and I’ve already warned my girlfriend about it. Is there a way that I can soften the news to them? I really want to introduce her to them, but I’m doubtful that it would go well.
