Is it that the poly with kids actually share the kids and so the parents can take a break in order to strengthen their relationship? Not quite poly, but I have a sister in law who helps to watch the kids several times a month just so wife and I can have date nights, which makes it even harder to find time for other people, as well. My wife has considered a 'work-boyfriend' a possibility because then she would have an excuse to spend time with someone without losing time for the kids and me.
Me, I don't have a clue how I'll find time for anyone at all. How do you guys and girls manage?
I am married, co-parent 2 kids, have 1 kid on the way thats mine, and another that I will co-parent after as well. Include a gf and an over full time when I can be a bit of a workaholic.
We manage, we get each other time off per se. We just make it happen. We do co-parent so there is 4 of us managing the kids. That helps a lot. But we also prioritize life. Instead of just the daily grind.
