Growing up and getting married means that we leave our family of origin and start a new family. We’re not asked to forget about mom and dad, but we do need to remember that our spousal relationship is important to take care of because it becomes the solid ground where we plant our new roots.
Janine: I remember when we had three children under the age of 5. One thing I fantasized about was being able to leave the house someday WITHOUT a diaper bag. I didn't know if that day would ever come. In the midst of the wild and crazy parenting years, I couldn't imagine what life would be like after kids. Before we knew it...our youngest child went off to college.
