Babies: tiny marriage destoyers?
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
The Globe and Mail just published an article called, Darling, this baby is coming between us, that talks about how having children can ruin a marriage.
I can understand that having children puts more financial stress on a couple. And makes it harder for the couple to spend time together. But actually wreck their marriage?
Not only that, but apparently people with one child are happier than people with two or more children. According to the story
, kids = marital stress, and more kids = more marital stress. So some couples are choosing to deprive their child of a sibling — a lifelong best friend — just because they think it could lead to divorce.
Um, is it just me, but I thought kids were supposed to enrich your life, and make you happier, and fill you up with wonderful, indescribable feelings??? Is any of that actually true?
