Format: Paperback
Your Marriage Can Survive a Newborn by Glenn and Natalie Williams reveals exactly how to salvage a marriage being torn apart by a "third party." The demanded attention from this couple's first child placed insurmountable stress upon their marriage, not to mention the ways in which their social lives and family relationships were affected. They had to find a way to become close again in order to save the relationship. Both authors share heartfelt expressions of what it cost them to be parents, as they reveal intimate emotions and personal details of their experience after a new addition to the family, with the hope that their lessons will help others.

Natalie writes, "I also grieved how my relationship with Glenn had changed. At times we simply didn't feel we had anything left to channel into our relationship. Our conflicts only increased the grief I felt at the loss of our relationship as it had once been."

Glenn and Natalie reassure readers that a marriage can survive the stresses of a new addition, and the effect it has on the household budget. Each chapter reveals the individual stages they each went through, and at the end of each chapter the authors offer quick tips to help others avoid problems that they themselves experienced. Glenn is a psychologist and Natalie is an occupational therapist, and they now have three children. The first baby became the center of their purpose for living. Ben wrote, "At times like this, our conversation deteriorated and dialogue became a tit for tat."

Family members and friends tried to help. They eventually learned that their parents' advice had been right, after going through anxiety, stress, and frustration that could have been avoided.

This book is written in a conversational style. The authors take turns discussing aspects of raising a newborn. At the end of each chapter is a list of "Quick Tips" which is great if you're a more fact-oriented person like me.

The book doesn't prescribe a "plan of attack", as many resource books tend to. Insead, it discusses typical problems that come up with raising a newborn and ways you can deal with them.

The overwhelming message of the book is "FATIGUE!" The tiredness that comes with all the physical and emotional rigors of raising a newborn sap your relationship with your spouse of all of its resources. The book suggests ways of reducing that fatigue and maintaining your relationship even when you have no patience or motivation to be loving!

This book certainly got my brain cogs whirring so I can be mentally prepared ahead of time to try to minimize my fatigue and stress.

I bought this book looking for some helpful advice for when our first son arrived. I did not find it with this book. This book is just a couple's stories about life with their first. Somewhat interesting but not at all what I was looking for.

I really enjoyed the material and it was easy reading. It was a good book. It's not a parenting book, it's about the relationship with your husband or wife.

Shipped on time and book in good condition. Looks like a quick and easy read once my newborn gives me enough time to read it. :)
