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?

Neither, imo. It should be balanced.

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

It's about needs, if my kids need me they come first. If the husband needs me he comes first. If there's a conflict then whoever a needs are more important.

Husband should be first. Of course you will both work together to meet your children's needs when they are young, but your children leave eventually.

I focus on the kids first because they need me more right now, and focusing on them creates a smoother household which makes it easier to have a strong relationship with my partner.
