If marital satisfaction is what you miss the most after the first child, plan the second baby now to get the mojo back in your love life.
According to researchers from the University of Michigan, several married couples get stressed after the first child birth with the new and challenging duties staring at them.
But with the arrival of the second baby, the quality of married life slowly returns to where it was before the first birth.
"While the initial four weeks after the second birth involves a period of adjustment, couples often adapt to the changes by four months," the team noted.
Previous research has suggested that marital satisfaction continues to decline with each additional child.
However, researchers in the new study found that couples experienced only minor disruption as the new baby was added to the family.
"Even when there was significant change, it was often short-lived, attesting to family resilience rather than crisis after the birth of a couple's second child," said Brenda Volling, psychology professor and the study's lead author.
