Kids take priority. You can’t avoid that reality, but you can manage the side effects.
No matter what age your kids, it’s essential you enjoy yourselves as a couple. Schedule date nights. Go for walks together. Make time for intimacy.
Kids offer a convenient excuse to ignore each other’s needs, an easy distraction to mask marital challenges. Find the time to be both parents of your kids and lovers of each other.*
Some relationships end because of cheating, stealing, and other tragedies. Others die slowly, falling apart under the pressure of stealthy threats. By recognizing the warnings and addressing them proactively, you can withstand these threats.
