A BEAUTIFUL RELATIONSHIP

After Roger spent time with his girlfriend, Nicole, he knew she was the perfect match for him. Soon, the couple decided to take things forward and got married to start a new chapter of their lives.

In the beginning, Roger felt his marriage was perfect. He was happy to live in the same house with the love of his life. Roger and Nicole rarely had any arguments, which convinced the man he had made the right decision by marrying his girlfriend.

However, things took a different turn three years later when the couple decided to have a child. Roger had expected fatherhood to be a wholesome experience, but life surprised him with something unexpected.

"A lot of disagreements and issues came up in our lives that somehow drove us apart."

After having one child, the couple thought having another kid would fix their marriage. Little did they know that having two children instead of one would only add to their list of disagreements.

THE FATHER'S FEELINGS

Having two children meant Roger had to work harder to fulfill their needs. He was working a job he disliked because he had no other way to make ends meet. He confessed:

"If I could go back in time, I wouldn't choose fatherhood again. For me, it's not the fulfilling experience everyone claims it to be."

Roger felt his sacrifices for his kids weren't "worth it." Although he loved his children and could do anything for them, he thought he was happier before embracing fatherhood. Roger hadn't revealed his feelings to his wife until he got into an argument with her.

The experts asked Roger to frequently take his wife out on a date to make things work between them. Spending time together without children would remind them how much they loved each other.

Lastly, the experts thought Roger should take some time out for himself. They advised him to pursue the hobbies he had before having children because doing so would positively impact his mental well-being.
