  • Yes, I love my son more than I love my husband. It's an unconditional love, and I just don't feel that for my husband.

  • Well, my children do listen better sometimes, but I just love them each in a different way.

  • I don't know that I love my children more, but it is a different love for sure. I have lost a child but I don't think I could bare to lose my Husband. Now... I was 29 weeks pregnant, she was stillborn... My Husband got me through it, so we're been through a lot. Now I can't even IMAGINE losing my two year old... I love them both so much and they both make up my life as it is now

  • Um duh!! My child comes before ANYONE! Of course I love her more.

  • I love my children more in a different sense. I love my husband in a way that w/o him I would not have the gift of my children. I love him beyond words, but still can rationally see that bond as slightly less than the one with my children. But, if there were some crazy awful situation where I had to choose between my husband and children, I would pick my children and I hope and assume my husband would do the same regarding me.

  • I know I struggle with this! My children come first, period! But, my children are going to find someone and start their own lives/family one day and my husband will still be there with me. So, until I figure it out; it is a different love. But, my children come first!!

  • no- I love them in different ways.

  • I agree, I love them in different ways, but my first loyalty will be to my children, so I guess you could say that I love them more.

  • I love my husband and children in completely different ways. I would never put my husband on the back burner though because one day my children will be grown and I do not want my husband and I to be looking at each other like we are strangers. I want to have a great life with him once the kids leave the house.

  • I love my two sons and my husband very much but my kids do come first. They're my babies. My husband is third. That's how I feel. If it's wrong, so be it.
