He adopted his second wife’s daughter, and initially treated her the same as his biological kids, which he had several of. However, he then left second wife and family for a much younger woman who worked on the Little House set and then he publicly stated that he never really loved his second wife, which absolutely broke his children’s hearts. He then told his kids that if they didn’t accept his new wife with open arms, he’d have nothing to do with them.
