Marrying someone with children

Q: I am a 28 year old divorced Muslimah with no kids. I recently met someone who is keen on making nikaah. He has 2 boys, 11 and 6. I am willing to accept them as my own and mould them into pious young Muslims in sha allah. There is something that I am scared about though. I'm scared of when they decide to become rebellious towards me. How do I react? Will it affect my relationship with my spouse?

A: If you are scared and he does not give you any type of security and assurance, then you rather don't get into this marriage.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
