Missing Daddy: A Toddler's Perspective

My daughter is 16 months old. My husband's been off work a few months and soon will be starting again. At times he may be away from home for two weeks at a time.

She is VERY attached to him. If she notices he is gone she has a melt down. Today he left for work before she woke up and it was just a rotten day. She pounded on the bedroom door, screamed...

Do you have any suggestions that might make her transition easier on everyone?

Can His Boys Swim?

Hi Sam,
We've been trying now for two years to have a baby. At this point I've undergone multiple tests with no answers. My doctor has recommended my husband be tested for fertility issues.

His immediate response seems to be that I'm somehow questioning his sexual abilities. Trust me -- THAT part is fine!

How is it that women are supposed to go through the testing and that's ok, but the same isn't true for guys?


Guys, Empathy and the First Trimester

We are nine weeks pregnant and I feel like @#$#@. My husband doesn't get it. His attitude is that since I don't "look" pregnant then I shouldn't be complaining.

I'll be honest. Right now I AM a grouch after feeling exhausted, nauseous 24/7, and then trying to juggle my normal routine (at work and home.)

I don't expect him to make it better but can't a guy have SOME sympathy?

Looking for Family-Friendly Couples

My partner and I have decided we’re ready to start our family. The rest of our friends aren't settling down yet. His guy friends still chasing girls in bars and mine too focused on finding "Mr. Right." Do you think this sounds like a recipe for a problem in our relationship?

Is there a way to navigate to other couples building their families? I mentioned that to my partner and neither of us have no clue where to even connect with these people.


Wanting to Start a Family Now

We've been married for three years. Before marriage my husband and I did discuss wanting to have a family someday (at least three kids).

Now each time now that I try to talk about trying it seems that he has an excuse of why "now" isn't a good time. I'm in my thirties and am concerned about running into problems conceiving.

I feel resentful as his reasons are selfish. It would interfere with our travel plans, (those I'd give up easily), wanting to buy a bigger house (we have 3 bedrooms), and now even citing "the economy."

Any advice to help me understand?
