Marriage Counseling for New ParentsReconnecting Couples After Baby
If only you knew how right they were when they said children change everything.
The truth is that you and your partner have had a hard time adjusting to parenthood. You both seem to have had different expectations, and when they weren’t met, things went downhill. You’re tired, drained, and feel unappreciated.
How do you switch from being a parent to being a partner again? You’ve been told to “put your marriage first,” but what does that even mean? There don’t seem to be enough hours in the day for both your children and your spouse, much less for yourself.
And your partner doesn’t seem all that motivated to help. You’ve asked them again and again, but all you get is grief. They moan and argue almost every time, so… you stop asking.
You had no idea you could be married and a single parent at the same time…
Sure, you long for connection with your partner, but more than anything right now you want some help. Taking care of a newborn is a full time job- whether one or both of you work outside the home. And it’d be nice to hear a “thank you” every now and again…
The two of you seem to be drifting further and further apart.
The truth is that both of you could probably give your relationship a bit more attention. But no one ever really taught you how to be married, and they certainly didn’t cover how to be married with children.
Think back to your wedding vows- for better or worse, sickness or health. Nothing. Absolutely nothing about becoming parents together.
No promise about little kids sucking the energy out of you and draining your bank account.
Having children changes everything, but it doesn’t have to destroy your relationship.
You want to fall back in love with your partner while also being an awesome parent.
The good news is you don’t have to wait until your kids are in college to have a great marriage again. You’re searching for concrete steps that you can take now to rebuild the bond that you once had with your partner. You want to look forward to seeing each other at the end of the day and enjoy the time spent as a family.
It’s possible to once again feel united as a team, facing the challenge of parenthood together- as well as enjoying the amazing moments of connection with your children. You don’t have to choose between your children and your spouse; you can enjoy both!
Imagine what it would feel like to have a partner again- to work together to rock this parenting thing.
No longer afraid to ask for help. No longer feeling resentful toward your partner.
To feel connected, loved, and appreciated.
