It happens almost without
you knowing it.
One minute you’re busy as hell building careers, running a household, and raising your kids. You can barely breathe.
The next minute, the kids are teenagers, and you’re looking at the reality of a quiet house, more hours than you know what to do with, and a virtual stranger sleeping beside you.
It’s so common for couples to lose themselves and their relationship in the chaos of family life. There was barely a moment for yourselves, what with work, family expectations, house chores, carpools, and kids’ activities. Your relationship took a backseat, didn’t it?
But now, the kids are leaving or already gone, off to live their own lives. Your careers are pretty well-established. And with fewer moving parts, home life is pretty much running like a well-oiled machine.
