  • Depends on what you mean. If you're spending all of your time taking care of your child, and you have no time for your husband, then yes, that's wrong. Children obviously take up a lot of our time, but we must not forget about our husbands.

  • ALWAYS? Then I would say it's definitely unwise. If you cannot nurture your marriage, it will cause trouble. Just as we must nurture our relationship with our children, so must all our other relationship be nurtured, and by always putting one relationship in priority over the other will cause the secondary relationship to be harmed.

  • Are you going to totally neglect your SO/DH? Your son and your SO/DH need equal but different attention. So what your asking I don't truly understand. If you are going to neglect your SO/DH just break up with him. And then your so will have you and only you.

  • It is very hard to have a child and a partner that does not help. IMO if he is going out with friends and such instead of spending time at home with you and baby then he is just as much at fault.

  • Yes OP, if he helped youd have time. He seems to be putting his friends first anyay.
