Chapter 10: The joys of parenting > Making time for your relationship

Making time for your relationship

The healthy relationship that my husband and I share exists because it receives nourishment and attention. Family life with young children can be exhausting at times. It takes considerable energy to feed, love and care for youngsters. However, for our family to be cohesive and happy, we have to make sure that as a couple we’re putting time and energy into our relationship.

Sometimes it can feel like there isn’t much energy left at the end of the day for anything other than getting ready for bed! On those days it takes a conscious effort on my part to take an interest in my husband’s day and to step away from my inward focus. Despite this, I feel so much better afterwards, and it keeps our relationship thriving.
