A sistere of mind is going through a terriblr time in her marriage. She's thinking of having another baby to add to the four she already has in order to hold on to her husband. For everyone out there, what do you think???

What she should do if the husband is willing is go seek some marriage coucil. They need to work on their marriage not on having children. Or maybe have some time to themselves to see what the problem is

Honey if your husband is acting up wit 4 kids, wut makes u think he will str8n' up wit 5? Don't do it, don't be single in da future wit 5 kids and he off married 2 some1 else. Please don't do it. Do u 4 ur kids. Try and hold it down on your own. Don't let him know u need him. Who iz he? Just go 2 counseling a church counseling at dat. Pray about it. Ask the lord, God what do u want me 2 do? Help me, meet me half way lord. A family dat prays 2getha stays 2gether. Hope all is well.

No way, why would you another baby to the situation. Its only going to make things worse. People get stressed out when it comes to babies and being pregnant.

nope dont think that would save a marriage. if anything i think it will ruin the marriage. a child is a blessing and should not be brought into the world with fighting parents. ya everything might be great at first but then once the excitement wears off from the new baby everything will go back to how it was. a lot of people think that once they have a baby their spouse will fall in love with them all over again but if you already feel the way you do about your spouse a baby wont change that. i personally think that is one of the worst things people can do. a baby adds stress and stress will only make things worse. she already has four and her marriage is falling apart so why would 5 make her marriage better?

Saving your marriage is a huge responsibility to place on a child, and it would be horrible for the child to be resented if it doesn't work
