My husband and I have always been the lovey dovey type. We always walk holding hands and kiss at red lights.
I didn't notice how child centered our relationship became while we were parenting Lil man.
Obviously having a child let alone a child with severe mental problems changes the dynamics of a marriage.
But the changes it made in us where over the top. We were so emotionally spent at the end of each day we didn't have the energy to make time for each other.
I swore I would never be one of those wives who forgot about her husband once the kids come along. But that is exactly what happened. Lil'man took everything i had. At the end of the day i had nothing left to give. The foundation of a happy family is a healthy marriage.
Thankfully we have reconnected over the last few weeks. Our relationship is stronger than before. We've even started kissing again at red lights.
