How does your relationship grow after you have kids?

Cupid’s Advice:

Children are supposed to bring joy to your life, but really they can either solidify or destroy a relationship.  Cupid has some way your relationship can grow after having kids:

1. Quality time: You’re working more closely together now and are taking turns with the children.  This can help enhance communication, and it’s something you handle as a team.  Also, those times you do get to relax, it’s nice to have your partner there to cuddle.

2. Support system: Both of you will be stressed out at first, especially if it’s your first child.  A baby is a big adjustment, and you both need to make sacrifices.  Vent to each other and reassure your partner that you’re in this together.

3. Family matters: After marriage, this is a tremendous factor in your relationship. Not only are you spending the rest of your life together, but now you’re raising a family. Do what Brad and Angelina do-include the kids whenever possible, but admire and take advantage of the alone time you guys get.
