"How the mother once told my husband that we can take the child to be ours even without intlawulo (damages) because she's going to get married to someone else. How the child was mantained more than the ones that were his. Yoh! Yoh! Yoh! I can go on and one about this story. But ke we move," @rural.stepmom shared.

She shared that children from previous relationship do have an impact on new relationships and dynamics can change.If this is left unaddressed, over time this could lead to feelings of jealousy and resentment as the partner may feel invalidated by the attention and priority given to the child.

"When a partner has children from a previous relationship, the relationship dynamics can impact how couples interact with each other daily due to the many challenges they may face when entering a newpartnership, especially when the child does not like a partner.It can put emotional strain on the relationship and partner who may feel rejected leaving them feeling frustrated and inadequate in the process" she said.

Quinsee also discussed how DNA testing and requires have an effect on the entire family

It is recommended that both partners seek professional support to help partners navigate the sensitivity of DNA testing. This helps address underlying issues of trust and provide a safe space to reach a way forward for both parties."
