Will a Baby Draw You Closer?


It’s another week in seminar. We’re in Boston giving our talk, and we ask the question we so often ask to an audience: What are some of the common misbeliefs of marriage? This guy hollers out his answer, and it cracks everyone up.


He says, “You know if you’re not doing so well, having a baby is the thing that will draw you closer together.”


Not necessary true.


It’s not true because even though we love those kids with all out hearts, they make it a little bit more difficult to get that intimate time.


Friend, think about this in your own marriage. Kids are a huge blessing, but they don’t always bring us closer together.
