This article offers a configurational insight on the issue of family recomposition after separation or divorce. Stepfamilies are often regarded as lacking social capital and therefore putting at risk their members, especially children. Results from a study based on 300 women with a biological child, half from a first-time family, and half from a stepfamily, reveals that a variety of family configurations characterize stepfamilies, with distinct consequences for social capital. Results are discussed in the light of the configurational perspective on families.
