I spoke with my son about this and he is fine with it. We can't pretend to still be a family when we're not. It just further complicates things for everyone. My g/f's biggest issue with our relationship is she is afraid she will never come first. She is right with regards that my son will always be first no matter what but I need to be able to split my time fairly so that everyone is happy.
When one has a child, the new partner has to understand that 9/10 the child comes first. If she can't grasp that then your R with her will not work. You two are a package deal.
