I think my relationship with my husband is better. I really believe that you have to make the effort to make it work and to help your relationship grow. The things that really help keep our relationship alive is maintaining a sex life, even if one of us is tired we still make an effort at least 3 days per week, and going out on dates at least every other week. All in all, ours has gotten so much better as our family continues to grow.

I think our relationship is better. We didn''t fight often before, but it's even more rare now. If anything, we just get cranky with each other because of the lack of sleep or whatever. We miss each other when we're together. It's not the same with the baby there, but it's not a bad thing either. I love our little family. My mom is awesome and takes the baby once a week, so we can reconnect and relax together.

My relationship with my husband has definatly changed i feel we have drifted apart, I get much more irritated with him than i used to and we hardly ever talk but we didnt really before either. Now all my attention is focused on our daughter and i am constantly wanting to do things that involve her but he doesnt so I dont really have a lot to offer him and he seems to be ok with it, we still love each other it just doesnt feel like we have anything in common anymore

you got to take the bad with the good and learn to enjoy the same things like when he does change the diaper or feed the lil one just anything cause in my opion there will be alot of times he will act like it doesnt matter

Well, I think its both better and worse... Worse because of the lack of sex and sleep and better because it's brought us closer together... We both love our little family and eachother and like Jennifer we both say I love you and kiss eachother at night when we go to bed... No one said parenthood was easy on relationships and personally it was a shocker to me... I mean, I thought we'd be going out all the time as a family... Not so much, he works full time and overtime when he can and I'm a stay at home mom. It's worth it though.
