I had a baby around 11 months ago, and things haven’t been more challenging in my life ever. This is a story of around 6 months ago when I was still on a maternity leave and felt like my world was crashing.

After having a child, I realized that we lacked time. We lacked time to talk, to discuss our future, and even do something as important as — fight.

Fights are important in a marriage.

Fighting with someone means you still expect that they would behave in a certain way or change for you.

Fighting means you haven’t given up on them, or your relationship.

Fighting means you still have the will to move along together.

Fighting keeps a relationship strong, and moving.
