Another thread on her got me thinking - how has your relationship with your DP changed since having kids (if you've been lucky enough to do so)?
For us, since having DS about 18 months ago, we now obviously spend less time just the two of us together, and we also have less time to ourselves to do what we want to do. This has meant a lot more compromises from both of us, and I think we've struggled a bit with this.
We've also become more of a 'unit', me DP and DS - we need to make decisions with our little family in mind, rather than ourselves individually - which is nice in so many ways, but can sometimes feel restricting too.
I also feel more 'bound' to DP than before - we now share our DS, and, God willing, we'll always have that, no matter what else may come (not that I'm seeing a break up in the future - but you know what I mean - he's something permanent, in a way that a co-owned house and car, for example, are not necessarily).
When bub's in bed though, I sometimes think I would prefer just some time to myself, rather than time with DP... I think I miss my alone time more than my couple time... I'm not sure what that says about us..
I'm not sure what I'm asking here - I guess it's just asking whether other people feel this way, and how other people's relationships have changed since having kids? Better, worse, different?
