It’s the strongest bond between a man and a woman.
It’s bigger than love, greater than your own life. It’s new life. And it’s your responsibility.
When you have a child together, your relationship changes. You’re not just husband and wife anymore. You are a mother and a father. Your life doesn’t entirely belong to you anymore – because you have a child.
Having a baby makes your love for your partner grow, you are sharing something indescribably amazing. And this new life has sprung from your love.
My first husband kept going over this, his pain and grief and dismay made him elaborate on this over and over. And there wasn’t much I could say to comfort him. He was right.
I just kept reminding him I love him too. And we have children too. The same bond exists between us.
Mark said: Yes, and that’s what used to make us special.
I do so understand. But I can’t change things.
