  • They are pretty even but I guess if I would have to choose i would say our daughter. She depends on me. My husband can do most things on his own (even if he chooses not to lol).

  • So far I haven't had to choose his needs or our son's needs over the other-so I guess I would have to say that they are pretty much even.

  • It varies... Do I put the needs of children behind that of a man that CAN take care of himself of course not but I think it is a balance. If the kids are fed, etc I am with hubby.. I don't feel I need to be by there side every waking moment. Of course they are not babies and completely dependant either so that might make a difference..

  • When my kids are awake, they come first. My DH knows that and agrees that there needs and wants are more important and more fun than ours. When the kids are asleep, however, his needs always come first.

  • We always put our baby first.

  • They say you're supposed to put your spouse first, because if you don't put each other first, the relationship won't last. And I get that to a point, but so far in our relationship, DH and I haven't had to choose who to put first. All the babies wants and needs are taken care of and so are ours...

  • When that was relevant to me I put him first. I agree with Haydensmama07.

  • My relationship with my DF deserves just as much attention, nurturing, & love as the relationship with my DD I manage my time between the two. No one ever feels like they get the short end of the stick. They are both happy & well loved.
