In their latest blog post, Ed and Cathy Lorient discuss the implications of having kids, yet keeping marriage as a top priority. The new blog post is titled, “Friends With Kids. Will Your Marriage Work Once You’re Parents?’
The blog post can be accessed here:
Within this latest post, Ed and Cathy discuss the new comedy ‘Friends with Kids’. They note how impressed they are at the debate it is opening regarding keeping a marriage alive with kids in the fold, too.
Following this, they turn the attention to the book Marriage Confidential, by Pamela Hagg, which posed the theory that modern parenting is killing marriages by taking the focus away from the marital relationship and placing too much emphasis on parenting itself.
Agreeing with the book’s premise, Ed and Cathy attest to how hard it can be to make a marriage work when children come along:
“We’ve already raised our two kids, so we know the challenges of having kids and remaining a couple in love. It’s difficult even at the best of times, to say nothing of how hard it can be when parenting gets really demanding” they say.
The couple mention that they agree with Hagg – noting that, since the 1970s, more women decided to embark on successful careers – at a time when the world in general was becoming more goal-oriented. As they believe, this started a trend of sacrificing marriage for parenthood:
“There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to be successful at work, be mindful and involved parents and also nurture passion and romance in our marriages” Ed and Cathy add.
As they conclude the blog post, Ed and Cathy share one of the best bits of marriage advice they say they have ever been given. “You can’t be really successful as parents unless you put your marriage first”, they say.
