More and more people over age sixty-five are remarrying each year, and few families are prepared for the avalanche of feelings that comes when adult children learn that a parent is getting remarried. Psychiatrist Grace Gabe and award winning author Jean Lipman-Blumen provide a practical guide with advice and understanding for every family facing this increasingly common, complex situation. Using case studies from a variety of perspectives, chapters address concerns frequently faced, including:

* Who Should Inherit My Property? Managing Financial Conflict Between the Generations
* Health and Illness: Thank Heaven the Caretaker Is On Duty
*The Grandchildren: Innocent Pawns (or Occasional Bridges) in Stepfamily Conflicts

Written for both the couple getting married as well as their adult children, Step Wars is the only book in the market that focuses on the blending of adult families.
