Mum asks if she should have another baby to help save her relationship.
Asking on Mouths of Mums she shared, “What’s the pros and cons of the ‘make up baby’?
“I know of people having another child to try and improve my relationship. Have you ever done this and did it work or backfire? What are your thoughts?”
The response was pretty negative
The reaction to the mums post was not very positive at all and she was basically told NO and that it was a ridiculous idea.
“Don’t do it. Your dragging another innocent into your crap!”
“This is probably the stupidest thing I’ve read in a while.”
“No!! Just no!!”
“Omg go and get counselling instead. A new baby will kill your relationship if it’s fragile.”
“Please don’t being another child into a already broken family. That’s a horrible burden for a child to carry (and yes, they will find out eventually) and having split parents is hard enough, why add another child to that?!”
“I wouldn’t recommend it. Having a baby is a lot of work and you need to be on the same page and working as a team.”
“The simple answer is, don’t do it. A new baby will not fix your relationship. Babies are a strain on a good relationship, so bringing one in to save a troubled relationship is just not going to work. It’s also not fair on the child to bring them into the world for such a selfish reason, have a baby because you want one, not to save a relationship.”
“Just don’t do it. Don’t ever look at someone elses relationship and think “it worked for them, maybe it’ll work for me too”. What you don’t see is what happens behind closed doors. They could be estranged behind closed doors or worse. Maybe behind the scenes, they finally worked out their problems and a baby just happened to coincide with the timing. If you have thought about doing this, talk to your partner, get counselling if needed, or just end it. A baby should not be brought into this world with fractured parents. You need to work together to raise a baby, even if you are baby Daddy aren’t together, you still need to have a amicable relationship.”
Do you know any couples who had a child to try and help reunite them stronger?
