When a part of your life is occupied by work, and when another part is occupied by your children, you two will have very little time left. You will get a babysitter. On that day, your child might become ill and the two of you will cancel the date. With every other date night, there will be every other reason to compromise on the date. As the child takes the space between the two of you, the lesser you two will connect with each other. As you get more absorbed into making more money, in order to buy more things and give a more comfortable life for your children, you will stop spending much time at home.
