How to resolve family arguments

How to resolve family arguments

Family arguments happen all the time, particularly around holidays. Here are ways to resolve them in a way that suits everyone.

    Hey Jon, it is interesting you say that because I have always had a certain opposition to men saying they are pregnant or attempting to inflate their stomach area and take picks together with their wives. However, a friend of mine said that people don’t say “we’re pregnant” to infiltrate the woman’s space or rather take any form of credit. Apparently, it is just a show of support and to let the wife know that he will always be there for her, especially more in this 9 month period. I don’t know what you have to say about that…

      Hi Gred,
      I can completely understand that, and any show of support via words or actions are key during pregnancy and relationships.
      For me, I feel that by saying ‘we’re expecting’ feels like a very joined up phrase compare to ‘we’re pregnant’.
      The former make me feel like I’m barging in on the intimate journey between mum and baby.
      Thanks for your comment!
