20. Set Aside Sacred Time With Your Partner
Even if it's just fifteen minutes each night or a Sunday morning ritual, it's important you and your partner have time alone each week. The more you can connect, the easier it will be on your relationship to juggle a family.

This check-in time will help you both through these beginning months. Erika E. added, "Ask your spouse or partner what priorities are important to them, too. My (now former) husband wanted to set a rule that we don't do any housework or cleaning after 9 p.m., no matter how messy things are. It helped him know that there would be some point in the day that he would not have to be working and could just relax."
