Having Kids Can End Marital Bliss?!

Is this going to scare the shoes off me?

Researchers at the University of Denver published an 8-year study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology that 90% of 218 couples experienced deterioration of marital satisfaction after the first child was born.

I don't have a take on this one. We're still planning for our first kid late this year or early next. I just figured this was a rather interesting share.

  1. Even though that's kind of frightening, I'm not gonna let it worry me. Why does it work sometimes and not others? I have no idea. I just know that I'm so happy and I'm gonna do my best not to take out my frustration with being tired on my hubby. I don't want him to resent me or vice-versa.

  2. i'm totally with you on this one. it must vary from family to family, their values, principles, priorities in life, definition of happiness.... don't worry, i'll let you know when i get there... oh wait! you'll get there first. so pls let me know... ;)
