Love & Money: Deciding who pays for the stepchildren is a complicated business in a blended family

Love & Money is a new MarketWatch series looking at how money issues impact our relationships with significant others, friends and family.

Bobbi Rebell and her husband are both in their second marriages — and that creates a myriad of emotional and financial complications.

When they married more than 10 years ago, her husband had a 6-year-old and 9-year-old with his first spouse. They had one son together. “I consider him the youngest of three,” she said. Rebell says she never looked at her husband’s children as anything other than her own. They both agreed that she would be their stepmother and take full financial responsibility for them too.
