A Note About Babies, Love and Marriage

Love Graphics
By Tatiana
Tonight I want to talk about love, and relationships, and marriage. First of all, Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so I've been feeling a little lovey-dovey lately. Second, Peter and I went to a couples workshop at our local yoga center tonight, which made me rethink some aspects of our marriage.

When a baby is born, it becomes so much harder to maintain healthy, happy relationship with your life partner. You are both exhausted, stressed, distracted and have way less free time on your hands. Add to that increasing expenses - and you have a recipe for disaster.

We have so many preconceived notions about love and relationships. Some of them come from movies, some from books or pop culture. We expect love to just fall into our laps... and be perfect. So, when something is not working out the way we expect it to, we freak out, we begin to think that may be there's something wrong with our love. May be it's not true love after all.

The truth is, any love, any romantic relationship is a lot of work. And it never stops. The greatest gift we can give our children is the idea of heart-warming, honest and loving relationship. And when it comes to love, the best way to teach is by example.

Yes, you are tired. Yes, baby's needs have to be met. So, your lover often gets pushed to the side. make an effort and put your partner first. Make time for them every day, even if it's just a few minutes. Your kids will grow up to be happier, better people if you teach them what a meaningful relationship between two people who love each other really is.

Happy early Valentine's  Day, everybody!
