Be very aware that time needs to be managed when children come along, and that includes time for each other. If you are in a cohabiting relationship then you’ll be used to having time to yourselves whenever you need it, and having children might be a shock to your normal system. Create date nights by getting your family involved in the child support or even making more of an effort to make each other dinner and watch a film together or play a game while the baby sleeps is as important to a cohabiting couple as it is any other.
Whether it’s finances or making time for each other there is really no difference when it comes to being married or in a cohabiting relationship, so take stock and do your research before the little one comes along.
