Are you Ready for Children?
The thought of having children and creating a loving family is a wonderful thought that almost every married couple comes across. Fantasizing about having children and actually bringing them into your lives are too different things however. Majority of people focus mainly on the thought of holding an adorable child and adding to the family tree, but bringing children into a marriage is something that needs to be taken into serious consideration before any decisions are made.
Both partners should be excited. It is important that both partners in the marriage are excited about having a baby. Sure, there will probably be one partner who is more or less excited than the other, but you both should be looking forward to this at the same time, rather than trying to adapt to the idea later.
Talk about the responsibilities. Having a conversation about the responsibilities involved with having a child is essential and can avoid many misunderstandings arguments later. Talk about when you believe you should have the baby, how you will handle the responsibilities as a couple and what your individual beliefs on parenting are so you can make a good team that works together rationally and in peace.
Ready to be a mother and father? Being a mother and father is wonderful, but are you both ready to let go of your time alone together an dedicate many, many years to raising your children? Knowing the challenges that lie ahead will help you make the right decision. You can still share quality time together as a couple, but you will not have the privacy you had when it was just the two of you. Decide whether you are emotionally stable to be parents and if you feel you have the strength and patience to deal with the ups and downs of being a mother and father.
Of course having children is not always something you can plan- there are times when you get surprises, but if you do get surprised with a pregnancy, just be sure to talk to each other about the same things listed above. Nothing can completely prepare you for being a parent and everyone faces different challenges, but as long as you both work together as a team and respect each other's individual beliefs and efforts, then having children can a great experience in which you both handle happily.
