Being a parent and a partner is exhausting. Both require infinite amounts of patients, emotional resources and energy and a person can only do so much. So the debate becomes, who comes first? The baby or the baby daddy? Tango published an article by a woman saying that her baby comes first and her husband is okay with that. Recently, Dr. Michelle Golland wrote a response saying that she is NOT okay with that approach. Sternengle weighed in on the debate, stating:
My father died when I was 16, and my mother says her biggest regret out
of their 25 years together (23 married) was that she was more of a
mother to my sister and I, than a wife to him. It breaks my heart! Now
that I'm married, I see how important it is!
