Some people say that the key to a strong marriage is to put your husband/wife "first" (before kids) - do you agree? Do you think that a strong marriage is the key to a healthy happy FAMILY?


*******

SO! How many of you bashed the step-mom/Dad's GF for wanting to take a birthday weekend with her SO instead of him having DD that wekend, on her birthday?? THAT MAN, according to 44% of you, SHOULD MAKE HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS S/O HIS PRIORITY?!?


Unless it's a step parent right? Then you single/divorced moms get your panties in a wad because you're a jealous that your ex wants to take care of his relationship with his new S/O and you claim that the step parent is causing conflict and trying to wedge in between the man and his daughter - BUT she's supposed to be the more important relationship, right???

I'm just saying.. I can't beleive how many people in this group flipped SHlT over that post, when half of you think that the "marriage" relationship should take priority over the kids.

Interesting, huh?

My relationship with my husband is the most important, as it is the basis of our family.

We put our kids needs first. We do take time out for ourselves and can't wait till all the kids are out of the house 1 down 3 to go.

I say dh. If dh and I are good it trickles down to the kids. Just like it would if we weren't

Neither. I think it needs to be balanced.

Kids come first for both of us. I didn't create him. I did, however, create my children, and it's my duty to put them above all.

I should be putting my hubby first, but honestly we are both more concerned with our kids first and us later
