Putting Marriage First Before Kids


Long before Yuri was born, it was just me and Jape. Our world only revolves with each other. And then Yuri came into our lives. The feeling of bringing out another human being from my womb is so liberating. I want to be there for her. She became the apple of our eyes. She became the center of our everything. And because we’re first time parents back then, we want to make sure we fulfil everything our little angel needs. We spend all our attention to our baby, we have put aside the time we need to have for each other.

I thought it was the right thing to do. I was wrong, we were fighting a lot because simply we don’t have time for each other, to know more about each other as husband and wife. Having quality time with your spouse is essential, that’s the most valuable thing we learned from the first year of our marriage. That is why, for me, marriage should come first before the baby. Before you raise your eyebrows, I’m sure not all of you can agree with me here. All I’m saying is that, usually when we have kids we tend to neglect our time with our spouse, we’re too busy giving everything to our kids, we forgot taking care of our spouses. A good marriage is also something we can give to our children, that way we give them sense of security. Our children should bring us more closer to our spouse. Our kids are there in the first place because of our spouse.

So never ever take your spouse for granted.

    Amen to that! :) We had the same issue. As a working mom, I make sure that days off from work are well-spent with my kid and my hubby. It’s just sooo tough to balance everything – being a mom and being a wife plus the fact you’re a mom. :x really wanna make you strangle yourself..hehe. At the end of the day, mom always find a way! :D
