Parenthood Not Causing Relationship Stress

Increasing responsibilities of new parenting including diaper changes, endless domestic chores and lack of sleep need not lead to relationship stress, according to a study among 200 couples done by University of Toronto. It found that many of the couples retained high satisfaction and commitment into the first year of parenthood. Those who successfully navigated the transition to parenthood had a more realistic outlook didn't avoid emotional connection with their partner, felt their partner helped them grow as a person and believed their partner was committed to the relationship. The researchers, however, clarified that couples shouldn't look at parenthood to save a troubled relationship. It was found that couples whose relationship was going well around five months prior to becoming pregnant fared best throughout the transition while those who were faring poorly during that period had a difficult time as they approached parenthood.
