Entering into a bonus family is not easy. It takes a lot of work and a lot more love. The trials can be many, but the rewards are always worth the effort.
This space was created for anyone who is entering into a bonus family. It is a place for us to share experiences unique to our situation, get and give advice, and show off the details of our union celebrations.
And what is a bonus family you may ask? A bonus family is a new and better term for a blended or step family. Bonus family describes any partnership which involves children from a previous relationship.
But, of course, what's a community without rules? So here they are:
*Post an intoduction upon joining this community. We want to know who you are and what role you play in your bonus family and in your union. *Be respectful of others when posting and commenting. It's ok to disagree but try to do it in a mature manner. *Lurkers are welcome. Trolls are not. If you post or comment with the sole intention of causing trouble you may be banned. *Please put large or multiple pictures behind an lj cut tag. One teaser picture may be left above the cut, but that's all. *Please place lengthy posts behind an lj cut tag. *Please keep posts on topic. This community is about bonus family unions. Please keep that in mind when posting. *No drama. There are plenty of communities on livejournal that welcome drama. This is not one of them. *If you have a question about entering a bonus family ask. You may get a better answer than you were hoping for. *Post pics of what you're working on. And once your family becomes blended post pics of the celebration. *This community is open to all persons who are entering into a bonus family. This includes, but is not limited to, poly, hetero, bi, same sex, and TG unions. *Have fun.
