Having a kid may foster mature personal growth and enhance a couple's devotion to one other, but it doesn't happen immediately, and more often than not, it doesn't happen at all. Many parents feel that their love for each other was un-messed with before they had children and then becomes undying once they have kids. This isn't true though; your love for one another changes when you have kids and that's okay.
Have you ever heard the saying "Husbands and wives who stay together after marriage have babies"? That's because people used to think that if you wanted a happy marriage, you needed to want the same things out of life. Your spouse wasn't perfect and having a baby would make them into something they're not. Also, people used to believe that women needed strong independent men and men needed loving caring women. So in order to keep their spouses satisfied, men would go out and fight wars or run large businesses and women would work hard at home and take care of the house and the kids. This is no longer true though; today's couples are aware that they need to be able to communicate with one another in order to avoid problems in their relationship.
All good things take time and trust me when I say that having a baby won't change any of this overnight.
While having a kid is frequently depicted as a "happily ever after" situation in many romance novels, the reality of becoming parents may place a significant strain on a relationship. According to new study, one-fifth of couples divorce within the first year of having a child. While parenting can be very rewarding, it's also difficult and stressful.
Pregnancy and childbirth can be hazardous to your physical health and cause emotional distress too. If you're not prepared for these changes in your life, it could affect your marriage or other relationships in negative ways.
Becoming a parent can change any relationship, but it particularly affects marriages by putting more pressure on partners to be equally responsible and giving them less time together as a couple. Pregnancy can also cause women to feel unappreciated by their husbands or boyfriends. Men may feel uncomfortable about wanting freedom or time alone now that they've made someone else's life better by doing household chores or taking care of business issues before their wife or girlfriend became pregnant.
Many couples experience problems when one partner wants to have a baby right away while the other doesn't. If you and your spouse disagree about whether or not to have children, consider discussing your differences early on in your relationship so you can both be on the same page when you do decide to have kids.
The decision to have a child should not be taken lightly because it has eternal consequences.
It is critical that both spouses agree to have a child. In that instance, a baby can help to strengthen the connection and bring the parents closer together. If both parents aren't on the same page, having a kid may be devastating to your relationship.
The truth is that kids don't necessarily make or break relationships. But if you're in a healthy union, want some family life, and can handle having a baby then go for it!
Sometimes people think that having a baby will make their relationship perfect but that's not always the case. Sometimes couples have problems dealing with certain issues such as communication or jealousy that come up when trying to have a baby. If you have these issues in your relationship, they'll only get worse once you try to have a baby.
In fact, studies show that people in unhappy marriages are more likely to have children than those who are happy in theirs. This is because having babies can take your mind off of your problems for a while. When you have a baby, you have something to focus on other than what makes your heart hurt.
The truth is that no matter how much money you have or don't have, how successful you are or aren't at your job, having a baby doesn't make any of this stuff go away. It just adds more responsibility onto an already full plate.
It's all in the family. Parents who want their marriage to last after having a child should only have children if they feel like a union between them would be beneficial for the child.
Having a baby can also lead to divorce. When one spouse wants to have a baby but the other doesn't, it can cause problems. They may argue about who will take care of the child when they are at work or school. Or maybe one spouse wants to stay home with the child but the other wants to go back to work. If these issues aren't resolved, then it could lead to divorce. However, having a baby can also make marriages stronger by giving them something important in common. For example, someone who loves sports might want to have a child so they can share their excitement with a future player or fan.
Finally, having a baby can lead to marriage bliss. If one spouse feels loved and appreciated by the other, then they will try harder to make their partner happy. This means that even if one spouse doesn't love doing certain things such as working outside the home, they will still make an effort because they want to keep the marriage thriving and feeling positive.
