When you become parents a whole in your life changes. You know that’s going to happen — it can’t be a secret that many things you used to do will have to take a back seat. Caring for an infant is a huge commitment and takes a lot of work. If you’re in a relationship, it’s going to change how you two interact with each other and really, the time you have to spend with each other. This is especially true when it comes to bedroom time. Yes, generally speaking you had a lot of time to play and practice before you became a parent.
The time you were able to invest in your partner before you had children gets broken up and replaced with dirty diapers, breast or bottle feeds, and oh all the crying. You’re tired, cranky, too, and that doesn’t exactly lead to a whole of of grown up bedroom time.
But, that time alone with your partner is important. It can help foster a strong and healthy relationship and has health benefits for you too. As you age though, so does your frequency for that time and that’s pretty universal for all people.
