There is something amazing about bringing in a new-life into the world that you and your spouse made together. Babies are a blessing, but the reality is things won’t be continuously smooth.
Parenting is hard, exhausting, and can actually test a relationship. Babies need continuous care. The nights are extremely long and the mornings are really early. Not to forget, the little one can become expensive. Things that were never an issue such as sleep, sex, attention, and money turn into the center of disputes.
So, how do you keep that relationship going with the little one in the picture? Check out the tips below on how to keep a vigorous relationship after the baby comes.
Make time for date night – You will have to start planning time to go out on dates. You should do this as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more it sets into your routine. Before you realize it, you’ll be exclaiming, “It’s been years since we went out on a date.”
Show affection just because… – Consider the times when you used to sit on his/her lap and kiss his neck? How about the sweet texts you used to send him/her? Don’t stop that. That will help to keep the passion alive.
Joke about it – The strains of having a new baby can trigger strong tension. Parenting is an imperfect procedure. Instead of taking it out frustration on each other, laugh things off.
Flirting with each other – Just like you would if you were in university, flirt with them. Tell them how you can’t wait to do “ABC” (the good things you love to do together) with them.
Flirt on Facebook – Flirting on social media with your partner adds a level of passion too.
Bath together – When the baby is sleeping, use this time to bath together. Just don’t slip!
After kids have landed on the scene, it can be tough transitioning from being a couple to a family. It doesn’t mean that the passion has to depart. If you want to keep your marriage solid, go the extra step to ensure that your relationship stays passionate.
