Cupid’s Advice:

Being a parent changes your life and it’ll change your relationship with your partner. This change doesn’t have to be a bad thing! Make sure the growth of your family brings you and your partner closer. If you’re worried about babyproofing your relationship, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Celebrate your relationship: Reminisce with your partner about your pre-parenthood days. Your relationship will change with the birth of your child and it’s okay to be upset about some of the changes. Accept the “loss” by celebrating the end of your time as a family of two.

2. Discuss expectations: When your child arrives, there will be way more work to go around. Discuss with your partner what roles each of you will have when your baby arrives. It’s important to go into parenthood with a plan, but you should also be flexible. You two are a team, after all!

3. Appreciate the little things: Be thankful for the little things your partner does to show their love. There will be less time for date nights when you have a new baby, but that doesn’t mean there’s no time for romance. Find the small moments that show your partner has your back.
