Do Kids Break Up Marriages?
Before I became a mother, I swore up and down that my husband and I would never change in our affection for one another. We would always find time for dates and cuddling.
I even had the nerve to scold a friend of mine -- who was a mother before me -- that she needed to pay more attention to her hubby.
Now I find myself relieved -- and even gloating -- when I see the closest of couples publicly bicker over the raising of their children. An editorial on MSN today offered up tips on selecting a marriage counselor.
It all reminds me that the sleep deprivation and lack of physical affection is temporary. It doesn't mean that our marriage is about to end. Nor does it mean that we will be sneaking around to have sex -- if at all -- for the rest of our lives.
Then again, some woman out there might have concocted the secret recipe to maintain romance even after giving birth. She is not me.
