Happily Ever After is Just the Beginning – How to Stay a Couple When Baby Makes Three (or Four, or Five)

Are you part of the 67% of couples whose marital satisfaction plummeted once you had children?

Many people get married because they want to have children and think marriage provides a strong foundation for a family. But, having children can put this strong belief to the test. This is because you get a completely dependent, 24/7 demanding little person but no extra time in the day to take care of it. As a result, something has to give. Unfortunately, for many couples, what gives is the very relationship they are counting on to support this bundle of joy. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Writer and mom, Hannah Southerland, reveals some very important and, often simple, ways to keep your marriage going once you become a parent.
