It’s a running joke in our house of four kids (!!) that although we wouldn’t change having them (they know they’re adored), there’s def some day dreams of what we would do without the endless constrictions of the life we “chose”.

Our kids take it in good humour and tease us right back.

We really wouldn’t choose not to have them.

But we really would choose a society that valued both us (as parents) and our kids more.

It’s the lack of appropriate support and shaming that’s the issue - generally much more so for women than men. A virtue of our toxic western societal structures.

We’d change that before changing the marriage and kids.

That said, my first marriage was horrendous. Yes. I’d change that.
