In the beginning, your marriage was hot. You went out regularly, you enjoyed sleeping in together on the weekends, and you couldn't keep your hands off of each other. But once your baby arrived, things may have changed — big time. The combination of a lack of sleep and postpartum hormones have made you feel anything but attractive or attracted to your partner. Although the addition of a baby will definitely change the family dynamic, it doesn't have to mean that your once romantic marriage is over. If you want to make sure all of the air doesn't leave your marriage, you definitely need to know how to keep marriage intact after baby arrives.
Remember, you were a couple before baby arrived, and hopefully, you'll be together long after your little bundle of joy has left for college. That's why it's important to do everything you can now to make your relationship a priority. And as clinical psychologist, Jerrold Lee Shapiro, PhD, mentioned on WebMD, having a good relationship with your partner is one of the best things you can do for your child. Besides giving them a sense of security, you are also giving them positive examples of how to handle conflict and how to treat others.
Marriage is work, and kids make the job even harder, but a little attention to your relationship can make all the difference in keeping things on track.
