  • With what exactly there are so many things that you could be talking about, men take time to adjust to becoming a father but once they meet that baby they are on board for life (at least the good guys are)

  • Smiling at anon :36. From now for the rest of your life you will discover things you are not on the same page about. Hopefully, you married someone with whom you had the important things in common, but the rest of it is going to take work. Unfortunately, it's just not as easy as "getting someone on the same page" as you. There's got to be some give and take, and if an issue is important enough to you that you can't budge, and you two are really at odds, you might need to get a counselor to help you through it. There's just no perfect answer. Good luck!

  • You are supposed to have these conversations before getting married and absolutely before becoming pregant. If you are already pregnant and not agreeing on child rearing, you really need to see a couples counselor.
