Summary: Quotes from husbands, wives, mothers and fathers of the strain having kids can put on a marriage. 

This book is a humorous summary of how I feel about married life with kids.

  • Having kids is hard. 
  • Standards will slip. 
  • Have lots of sex. 
  • Laugh off the minor things. 
  • Make your marriage important. 
  • Don't wait for the kids to leave the house to spend some time with your spouse. 

While it doesn't really have concrete examples of what to do to make your marriage important, it will really help you if you feel like you're the only wife who has to bite her tongue when your husband takes a clean bowl out of the dishwasher to serve himself only. You are not alone.
