"What's Happened to Our Marriage?" Have you asked that questions since your fist child arrived? You're not alone--it's a question all new parents ask. And the good news is, there are solutions for the underlying frustrations. If you need help and honest answers, you'll find them in When Husband and Wife Become Mom and Dad. Based on 26 years of experience with parents of preschoolers and the results of 1,000 questionnaires sent to new moms and dads, this book identifies six areas of need: -Balance-What's happened to our marriage? Commitment-Will you love me even when it's hard? Interdependence-Who are you and me now that we are three? Intimacy-Are we just roommates? Mission-What makes this family a family? -Hope-Where is "happily ever after"? Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) International touch on the issues that most concern the two of you as you make the important transitions of parenthood. How do we find time and energy to regain that romantic spark? How can we function as a team? How do we share responsibilities? How should we raise our children? The answers to your most vital questions are here, together with application-oriented "mobilizers," questions for discussion, humorous tidbits, helpful tips, quotes from parents, and vignettes you'll instantly identify with. Like the whimsical mobile to which Morgan and Kuykendall liken a marriage, you and your spouse will inevitably wobble in your relationship when a baby throws your two-person balance off kilter. But while regaining equilibrium takes hard work, the payoffs are worth the effort. When Husband and Wife Become Mom and Dad will inspire new vision for the creative masterpiece your marriage can become when the two of you enlarge into a family. We interrupt this marriage . . . to raise children. Just when you thought you'd adjusted to each other -- just when you and your spouse had achieved a satisfying balance in your relationship -- it happened. Your first child arrived. Things have never been the same since . . . and they never will be. So how do you regain your equilibrium now that you have children? Elisa Morgan and Carol Kuykendall of MOPS International know your frustrations. And they know the answers. Not pretty theories, but honest, qualified insights and approaches that can help you turn the transitions of parenthood into times of transformation in your marriage. When Husband and Wife Become Mom and Dad is for every husband and wife entering the adventu
