Celebrity couple Giuliana and Bill Rancic told UsMagazine.com that they “make their relationship a priority, even when there’s there cutest baby ever” around. Similarly, Hollywood Life reported that the twosome believe that the best thing they can do for their son is to have a strong marriage, hence why they put their marriage first and their child second. The couple refers to themselves as husband and wife but also best friends.
What are some ways to work on your marriage when you have children?
When you have a child, your marriage will change and may require some extra work. Of course, it’s challenging to focus on your relationship when you have a new baby that requires a lot of attention. Lucky for you, Cupid has some advice to help improve your relationship!
1. Communication: Working on your marriage requires constant communication, especially when you have children. You and your partner must check-in with each other and make sure you’re both on the same page. When you have an issue, it’s important to confront your significant other. Don’t let your emotions build up, as it may drive a wedge between the two of you. Strong communication skills will not only improve your ability to be a good husband or wife but also a good parent.
2. Time: It’ll take some time to adjust to having a child; you won’t suddenly adapt to a lifestyle full of diapers and lack of sleep. Be patient with yourself and your partner as you get used to being a threesome instead of a twosome.
3. Love: Your marriage will not suffer as much if you remember how much you love your significant other – especially during the most stressful moments. You need to stay fully connected to your partner to maintain a strong relationship and be the best parents possible to your baby.
