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?

um husband/wife first because when you get older, the kids LEAVE the house and make their own families and if you always put your spouse second, there is no real marriage left when that happens. PPl who put their kids first are hurting their marriage, IMO, because a strong familiy and happy kids means a strong marriage and happy spouse.

It depends on what we are talking about. Children's NEEDS come first but at the same time you do have to maintain your relationship with your spouse. Personally, I think it's more of a balancing act then a line

My relationship with SO is most important. That being said my kid depends on me to eat so sometimes his needs come before SOs. I'm not going to miss date night though because my child wants me to draw or something.

Husband/Wife. 

If we are not okay, then they are not okay.

Yep I agree.

Quoting Kaelaasmom:

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

To me if the husband and wife isn't happy then the child it not happy.
