Hello
Your new partner being your ex girlfriends brothers ex wife is not a blood relative to you so you could choose to marry if you wanted too.
Your child and your new partners child are cousins as the your child's mother is the sister of your new partners child father.

What happens if me and my new partner get married and have children of our own...? How would our children from our previous relationships be related to our own child?

Hello
Thank you for your patience.
If you did go on to have further children together then the new children will be half siblings to your own respective children - as they share one parent.
Your family would be a blended family with your current respective children also being step children as well as cousins.
Blended families are not uncommon. relationships do not always last and it is common now for parents to go on to have further children with new partners. This will not have any social stigma attached.
For me the most important part is that all the children know that they are loved and included and intergrated in the family. When this is the position then the children will likely be happy knowing they are loved.
Kind Regards
Caroline
