DH and I are very different people, and we were raised very differently. One thing we do have in common is that we're both stubborn and strong-willed; not a great combination when it comes to disagreements and having to compromise! We also have a tendency to say things we don't mean during arguments, which can be really hurtful on both sides.
Currently DH has a really crappy job that he hates, and what looked like a very promising job opportunity fell through. So that doesn't help his mood any. He's pretty depressed most of the time. Add that to the fact that he did not have great role models or family life growing up, which affects how he views life in general, including raising DD, and we have a recipe for disaster.
Basically we're at the point where we need marriage counseling. Having a baby has really exacerbated the problems we had in our marriage before DD was born, and neither one of us wants DD to grow up with fighting, upset parents. It's just hard for me to admit this, because our relationship has stood the test of time (we've been together since we were very young teenagers) and I never really thought we would be in this place of threatening to leave and give up on our marriage....
So, anyone else experiencing marital/relationship strain with your S/O after baby?
