Do relationships go sour once kids are in the scene?

I'm witnessing a dilemma of a couple fighting bitterly because they can't see eye to eye on how to care for the kids. The father believes in letting the child cry in her bed until she realises she has to be independent. The mother believes in attending to the child and comforting her since she seems to smother her whenever she cries. As a result, she's always spoilt whenever she cries, she gets what she wants. She would wake up in the middle of every night, running to parent's bedroom to the point.

The chld is 3.5 years of age.

  • This is something many people don't talk about before entering into a sexual relationship, which you should because if you have sex you have a chance of getting pregnant. These two people clearly never talked about how they want to parent a child together. You have to be on the same page if you choose to have a child together, if not your relationship will suffer.

    • Yeahhhh they did not. Everything changed when they had children. He didn't really care much about into his kids. She is unhappy because she had an idealistic view of raising a family, happy kids, happy childhoood, this has certainly gone pearshaped for her.

  • Kids put a strain on any relationship, but I don't think it means the whole relationship turns sour.

  • Well, it is a taxing time at first but it forces you to work together
