If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “If it weren’t for the kids, I’d leave,” you may already be doing it.
It’s called a Parenting Marriage. This is where
you and your spouse stay together (or come together) primarily to raise your children together.
If you’re not already doing it, but you can relate to at least three of the following, you may want to explore creating a Parenting Marriage:
- I’ve told my spouse (or thought to myself), “I love you, but I’m not in love with you.”
- I don’t want to be married to my spouse.
- I don’t want to leave because I want to see my kids every day.
- We co-parent fairly well.
- The thought of staying makes me feel really bad.
- The thought of divorcing makes me feel worse.
- I’m open to trying something new.
together by design
Many couples practice Parenting Marriages by default rather than by design. That is, they just co-exist as housemates and co-parents but they never talk about what happened to their love and intimacy. Nor do they care about getting back what they have lost.
Living this way can cause you and your spouse undue stress and anxiety. In turn, the kids suffer. What if you could design a lifestyle together that felt more authentic? What if you could come up with agreements about your living arrangements that felt good?
People tell me they feel immense relief when they acknowledge their marital state, admit that they want to make changes, and create a supportive structure around their new agreements.
