Cutting ties with children from previous marriage?

I have been divorced for close to 10 year.
I have two daughters which I spent every evenings with after work.
They are very close to me even though we are not living together.

Recently, I met a woman. We both love each other very much.
She however, does not like me to spend time with my family including my mom and siblings, and of course my children. She wants me to chose between her and my other family (mom, kids, siblings). I should be committed to our relationship and a new family that we will build.

I can't sever my ties with my kids and mom. My wish is that she will eventually be part of my extended family.
She thinks I pay more importance to them than her. Am I wrong to have this wish of integrating her with my family? If we get married, should I really cut ties with my past i.e. my family, my kids?

Appreciate some guidance here.

Bro, an understanding partner should accept you for who you are. Cutting ties with kids and your mom, to me is totally not acceptable. Just my opinion.

I totally agree with bro John Tan68!

@TS: Are you serious? Crazy or out of your mind? At your age, you should know what is the correct thing to do. You should ditch that lady!

Love is blind but at your age, you should be rational too. Maybe you should ask her the same question too - will she cut her ties with her parents for you.

Agree. TS needs to wake up his idea. Red flags waving galore.

Kids alone is crazy enough but asking you to cut ties with your mother and sibling?? (Hope I reading it right

I hope this is just a troll post.

asking you to cut ties with ur family (parents, siblings & kids) u really think she is the one for you? who knows she will even ask u to stop contacting your friends... this kind should just kick her far away.... a real lady will not request for such things...

hi there, how much do you understand this new gf of yours. What was her history? Her personality is likely to affect her previous relationship / marriage as well. Be aware what you are getting into. There could be underlying issues that she have that leads to her behavior. Sometimes, you can help her let go of her need to dominate. Often, you cannot. So, you should really reflect over the entire relationship.

She might as well put u into a cage and catered only for her own pleasure, sound so ridiculous.

Cutting ties to ex wife is acceptable. But to your children is unacceptable. You have a responsibility towards them. Any good wife will understand that. You should cut ties with any woman who demands you cut ties with your children.

If not, run for the hills!!

Cut ties with your mum and siblings? Only a really mentally ill person would ask that.
 
any woman asking you to cut relations with your family is not worth your time dating.
don't even go down the path of having a future with her.
