Don't let a busy routine hurt your chance for a happy, loving relationship.
We all work hard on our careers, helping our friends and family, and doing all those necessary chores. Women, particularly, are very generous with giving of themselves to others, sometimes to the detriment of their own needs and desires. But we're all guilty of getting caught in routines that don't leave enough time or energy for the ones we love.
We recently asked the YourTango Experts how we can find space in our busy lives for more quality time seeking love or spending time with our current relationships. Here's what they had to say:

And what is the perfect age for pregnancy and motherhood, anyway?
I just turned 38. Am I too old to contemplate one more pregnancy before I hang up my fallopian tubes? After all of the drama I've endured with my last five pregnancies (and three births), I feel like I've gotten pregnancy down to an art. It seems unfair that I might be considered too old or too risky to bear another child.
A career girl's tips on dealing with crude remarks from male co-workers.
Women everywhere have to deal with sexist and misogynistic co-workers. In a perfect world, the creeps would be written up for sexual harassment and the ignorant would be put through training. In the real world, there are two much more prevalent outcomes. First, women don’t want to deal with the stigma of being a whistle-blower so they choose not to say anything. Or, they work for companies like mine who only care if its a major offense. So when do we put our foot down? When do we stop pretending to be one the guys?

Money is a topic very few people are comfortable talking about, and issues concerning spending and saving are deeply personal. The additional variable that's been silently added to the mix is the turning of the tides in many relationships for who is the primary breadwinner. Here are five tips for keeping a breadwinner relationship tension-free.
A stay-at-home mom lets go of the idea that she needs to have an income to be happy and fulfilled.
As a self proclaimed feminist, I was surprised by how hobbled I was by my love for our first born, that I, who’d argued for years how important it was that women remain in the workforce after giving birth, couldn’t imagine being anywhere but home. I'd always prided myself on being independent and self sufficient, secure on my own two feet. Now, without a paycheck, I felt lost, unsure of my worth.
