Cupid's Pulse Article: John Travolta & Kelly Preston Look Forward to New BabyCupid's Pulse Article: John Travolta & Kelly Preston Look Forward to New Baby

It was all smiles last weekend for a pregnant Kelly Preston and husband, John Travolta, who partied at the Celebrity Centre of Scientology.  The couple attended the centre’s annual bash with their daughter, Ella.  As reported on E! Online, Travolta and Preston are now looking toward a bright future with a new baby a year after the devastating loss of their son.

How can a couple survive the loss of a child?

Cupid’s Advice:

The loss of a child is one of the most devastating things anyone can possibly go through.  Many marriages have ended soon after such a tragedy.  Cupid has some insight on how to survive such a loss and build a stronger relationship through it:

1. Support each other: At a time like this, you need to be a couple more than ever.  No one can go through losing someone close to them alone.  However, remember that everyone grieves differently.  When one person may feel angry, the other may be deeply saddened.  Pay attention to and respect the way your partner wants to grieve.

2. Kids come first: If you have other children, they are certainly feeling this loss, as well.  Both partners must be strong for the other children and make them feel as secure as possible.

3. Moving on: Though the sadness surrounding the loss of a child never really goes away, it’s important to celebrate and remember your child’s life together as a family. A small memorial can be a wonderful reminder of the life they led, and the act of building a memorial can also be a great way to reconnect with your partner and family.
