Staying Connected Through Changes

My husband and I are expecting a baby next month. More than any other question, we are asked, “are you excited!?” The obvious and easy answer is YES! But I would be lying if I said a part of me wasn’t nervous about the changes it will bring in our marriage. It has already brought some added challenges and unintentional disconnection.

Changes are a natural part of life, but does disconnection in our relationships have to be, as well?

Here are some strategies that I have found to help!

  • Check in with each other frequently.
  • Listen and validate each other’s feelings, even if you don’t agree with them.
  • Be honest with where you are emotionally.
  • Ask for what you need from each other.
  • Go on adventures together and bring some fun into the relationship whenever possible!
