  • Keeping communication lines open, and helping eachother without being asked first. It gets tiring having to ask for help all the time, when it's self-explanatory stuff. GL!

  • our big thing was being on the same page so to say, i wanted to do something this way and he wanted to do it his and it never worked out. so make sure you agree on how to do things. like dicipline when they are old enought for example,

  • consistancy. That is the key. Do what you say you will do. Stick to your words and keep your promises. remeber your life without kids and remember when the kids grow up you will have that again with your hubby. dont let your kids come between you but enjoy them and appreciate that they are you and your husband. Communication is important talk to your hubby everynight before you go to bed even if it's for just one minute.

  • Keep the marriage the top priority. Always remember that the children will be in your home for about 20 years, but hopefully, you will have 50 or 60 years with your mate. If you don't make the marriage top priority for those 20 years, you won't have much to work with when the children are gone.

  • in our house is living the gospel that is taught in our religion and my husband and i upholding those moral and values. treating and learning to treat eachother as you'd want treated. by placing god first in your home he blesses you and gives the knowlegde or strength to keep a family on the straight and narrow. there is no room for pride in our home. just being humble and open with every member there in.

    THIS! and keep your communication OPEN and make sure you're on the same page. help each other out and ENJOY your kids! family time together is just as important as "intimate" time for mommy and daddy. don't lose sight of what you guys were before kids and keep that love and fire alive and remember you're not just mommy and daddy, you're HUSBAND AND WIFE!
