Melbourne & Spending Time With Your Spouse

My husband and I make it a priority to invest in our relationship.  But it's hard work! Finding time to go on a date, let alone eat dinner together, is difficult.  I would say that our family isn't child-centred.  While a lot of our life revolves around our children, the relationship between Matt and I is very important for our family.  You see, if Matt and I are on the same page, the kids benefit greatly from … [Read more...]
