How to approach it I think will be pretty dependent on age and how well they know the person you're marrying. I think it's really important to put your kid first when making life altering decisions like this, because things that appear minute to you may seem huge to the child and stay with them for the rest of their life.

One instance I read about that I thought was completely adorable is the new partner creating a special night for the KIDS and proposing to them, to make sure they thought it was okay to marry the mom.

As the kids get a little older and less accepting of things, I think a heart to heart conversation is the best way to go.
