Does anyone have any experiences with a secondary partner becoming a parent and how that changes the relationship?
Anyone who has kids knows with complete honesty that things change. Priorities change, time availability changes, your social life changes and the people you hang out with often change (new parents often hang with new parents at least for the first few years). In short..expect change. That doesn't mean it is a bad thing, it'll just be different. The baby will take precedent over everything and everyone....just as it should be in my opinion.
