Cupid’s Advice:

Taking the next step of welcoming a child into your family is not a lighthearted decision to make. Here are some steps to keep in mind when figuring if your partner will be a good parent:

1. Trust and communication: The most important factor in a successful relationship is trust. You need to be able to properly co-parent with your partner. In order to successfully accomplish this, you must be able to trust your partner, especially in their choices.

2. Responsibility: A child should not be raising a child. Is your partner ready to step it up and care for another life? Being able to take responsibility and to maintain a level head in emergencies is always a good quality to have when being a parent. Children need to be taken care of from the moment they enter this world until they move out when they are adults themselves.  Can your partner be mature and rational?   

3. Stability: If you have a rocky relationship, it may not be the right time to have a child. A solid foundation is needed in order to grow as a couple to embrace parenthood. Not only should you and your partner be economically stable but also emotionally stable with one another. The two of you are partners — a team — that your child will need to lean on as he or she grows.
