After many months (or years!), you've finally met someone you can see yourself being with long term. By this time, you've even made all the necessary introductions: your friends think he's a major upgrade from your ex and your parents can't stop gushing about how well-matched the two of you are.
Well, wait. You've almost made all the necessary introductions. The last step? Introducing him to your kids. After waiting to make sure your relationship is the real deal, you're finally ready to make that move.
