The Wonderful Impact Of A Child In A Marriage Is Delicate
The birth of a first child is thrilling and overwhelming for any couple. Know that most of your time and energy will be invested into the care for your baby. They will wake up in the middle of the night and you as a parent will go countless sleepless nights. All of these new changes will take its emotional toll on your relationship. Both you and your spouse will be needing to make certain adjustments in order to preserve your marriage and have it stay healthy as ever.
1 Keep Attention Balanced
“Love is patient and kind.” “does not look for its own interests, does not become provoked.” (1 Corinthians 13:4, 5)
Mothers, it is important to not leave your husbands unattended when the new baby comes in. It will be a difficult task, but if you do not attend to your husbands emotional and physical needs, he will without a doubt feel neglected. He too needs your attention, and this point in time will be one of the most delicate within your marriage. This is where both of your patience will be tested, but keep involved with each other.
2 Keep Going Strong
“They will become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)
Know that even though there is a little new person in the family, you and your spouse are still “one”. It will be easy to deviate from good relationship goals. Husbands are the leaders that God put in charge, they will have to be able to provide for the family. Wives must exercise patience and be there for emotional support. Even though you have a new member in your family, remember that you and your mate are still “one flesh.” Make every effort to keep your relationship strong.
