What should you think about before having a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

Bringing home a baby is one of the most exciting new chapters a relationship can take on.  But before you and your partner decide to add on to your family, sit down and consider just what all goes into raising a child:

1. Cost: Not only are babies expensive, but the pregnancy and birth is as well.  New clothes for your growing belly and a new room to furnish are two other factors, so there’s a lot of preparation that goes into those nine months leading up to the birth.

2. New roles: After your maternity leaves ends, decide who will be the the breadwinner and who will be the caretaker.  Decide whether daycare is an option.  Sometimes it is more convenient for the father to become a stay-at-home dad.  Find out how he feels about that.

3. Values and morals: You and your husband may connect on every level and feel like you’ve discussed every topic there is, but bringing a child into the world will bring out a whole new slew of conversation starters.  Come to a consensus about what values you will raise your children.
