Hi All! My husband and I are starting to talk about having a baby in the next year. We're in our early 30s, financially very stable and have a great relationship. We already know we would purposefully have an only child. The thing really holding us back...we feel like we have no examples of happily married couples with young children.
Our main point of reference is my 2 older sisters. Both had their kids in their late 30s, one now has 3 the other 2. I love them and my nieces and nephews dearly, but no one seems happy, just getting through each day with work, tons of activities and zero time for their marriage.
I'm not naive, I know a baby always brings challenges, but are their any couples out there who are as happy as they were before and enjoying parenthood?
