Cupid’s Advice:

Deciding whether or not to expand your family can be a tough choice.  So what are some things to discuss with your partner before having another child? Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Agree:  You and your partner need to both agree that you want to have another child.  If you guys cannot agree it is not the right time to have another child.  You and your partner both need to support each other in big life decisions.

2.  Financial situation: Raising a child is expensive and raising another baby can add to some money troubles.  Discuss with your partner your financial situation and make sure that you two can provide the best for your children.

3. Your work life:¬†If you and your partner both have successful careers are you both ready to give up the success to take care of your newborn? Don’t regret leaving the success you created behind. ¬†If you are ready for another child you wont feel regret about the adjustments you will need to make in your work life.
