I have found myself wondering lately if my husband and I would still be together today if it were not for our daughter. Do not misunderstand me; we are happy and in love. I was just thinking though, about how many relationships end over a trivial disagreement because both people were in a bad mood or something and it all blew out of proportion. So, I wonder if being a family, instead of just a couple, causes people to put more effort into discussing or simply putting aside stupid arguments. It does seem to me that, since Lucy was born (she's 16 months), we have been quicker to apologize and/or talk things out.
What do you think?

Not necessarily, I think that being married has helped me in my relationship to work harder at it and apologize instead of holding on to my pride and walking away . I think that children can make a relationship beautiful yet more difficult, their is another human life your responsible for besides yourself and just the daily stress and struggle to pay bills and support a family can cause more friction in a relationship. So...I don't believe children hold a relationship together. If you don't want to be in the relationship you won't be and if you truly want to make it work whether you are married or a couple...children or not you will. I think it's all about Love and respect that hold a relationship together not children. It's working for hubby and I and Sounds like you and your man truly love one another and your doing what it takes to make it work.
