    General Relationship Discussion
    Well, the good news is that my wife's pregnancy is as healthy as can be and we are both very happy for it. As we near the due date, whenever we meet friends the conversation turns more and more towards pregnancy, child birth and parenting. This is all well and good as everyone has a story to...

    General Relationship Discussion
    Okay, so I've been married for almost eight years and my Wife and I are on the verge of divorce. One of our major issues is our parenting style.

  9. Will Having Kids Ruin Your Marriage?

    Articles
    While we previously discussed that, no, having kids is not really to blame for marriages that struggle post-baby, a recent study out of Open University helps to enrich(/complicate) the issue (as well as validate some of those who feel that having kids did impact their marriage for the worse)...

  13. 10 truths to share with your children while preparing them for adulthood

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    Many people make the mistake of waiting until their children are pre-teens to talk about money.

Some...

    We always thought we would have children. We agreed upon that when we met and fell in love during our Army assignment back in 2000. He was 29 and I was 25. We dated and lived together for four years before our marriage in 2004. No rush, we have plenty of time to start a family. I’ve always...

    Going Through Divorce or Separation
    Alrighty...I'm sure that I'm not going to ask any new questions here, but I just can't find any that really apply to my particular situation, and I'm being too lazy to search through the hundreds of threads on here. I and my husband were together for 12 years, married for almost 8 when we...

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    I'm struggling just to get my husband to take on the role and responsibilities that come with marriage and having a child.

  20. Husband and Son hate each other

    The Family & Parenting Forums
    When one walks into the room the others demeaner changes. My husband is very overbearing with the children. He is very strict and gripes about everything all the time.
