My husband and I had been married for five years when we brought home our first little baby boy. Our first five years of marriage were filled with many adventures and laughter. Looking back now, I see how we had so much time to connect, communicate, and relax together. Fast forward into almost twelve years of marriage, we have 3 little kids. Over the years, we have seen how you need to be intentional in your marriage in order for it to be growing and strong.
Once kids enter the marriage equation, there is a lack of sleep, stress over learning to be a parent, and all of the little decisions that must be daily made as a parent. Marriage brings out our own personal selfish nature and becoming a parent can cause it to push through even stronger. It is so important to being taking steps in growing your marriage.
