It becomes an obligation. Whoever cares the most makes the most sacrifice. Trying not to care only make your kids suffer. You better be sure u can deal with your partners worst cause you will have to one day.

I gained weight, lost sleep, our relationship struggled. But we are making progress in finding our strengths.

It’s not about you two anymore - it draws you together but changes the carefree romance. You have to work at the romance to ensure it doesn’t disappear

I feel like I'm the only one here who feels the relationship was enhanced by the addition of children...We've always been each other's rock and it's a benefit when dealing with our kids. They get to see how two happy adults should act around each other, can't ask for much more.

Realized I chose the wrong man to be a father of my children. And learned the man won't change if he doesn't want to. A lazy husband is a lazy dad.

Neither of us wanted kids and not giving in to the social pressure to have them anyway was the best decision we ever made. We'd have made terrible parents anyway.

It makes most people more mature and become more responsible. You would give up the crazy club nights for changing diapers, feeding, bathing and putting the kids to sleep and be satisfied with just that.

Our relationship changed Very dramatically. I instantly felt unimportant and felt my needs took a back seat to my wife’s needs and my daughters needs. I have always considered myself a giver, so on the outside I tried to play it off that it was no bother, but deep down it hurt a little. Even 6 years later I still feel that my wants and needs are not that important. I feel it’s important to stick up for your own needs, but I have failed to do so personally. Don’t go along for the ride, let your wants and needs be known.

I don't kids but that's something I will about with my partner. Pretty scary since I am a giver and can't ever say no.

It brought the kids in us out and we learned we worked well as a team. But our lives definitely became more challenging due to more responsibilities. It can definitely test a relationship.

It means less time together. Have to think about performing moments of intimacy in less open ways

Tired! Less patience for anything else, especially emotional issues after riding their rollercoaster all day. Feeling like I'm seen as a mom and not a woman, and feeling like I need to be a totally different person. Needing more from my husband when hes tired too. But also feeling more fulfilled than ever and exploding with love when they do anything cute

We have never been without kids. We both have kids from previous relationships. Now we have a grandson. Blending families can be difficult but we do our best to make alone time.

They caused us to be more responsible and less carefree with things like our time and money. However, my husband does a great job of making our relationship a priority while ensuring the kids have what they want and need.

Honestly it changes a whole lot. You give up doing things you love doing and get to enjoy doing things that makes your kids happy... it's really a great feeling seeing that big smile on your kids face... I like sharing my childhood favorites with my kids. It's one of my favorite things to do.

Been involved since day one. I have one he has two. It’s been quite a struggle and stesser in our relationship. Especially when the kids are teens and definitely at a challenging age.

Life slows down and the party ends and it's time to grow up and be an adult. But kids are amazing I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.
