Redefining your sexual values is one aspect of the overall process of redefining yourself, separate from your former spouse. It’s natural to mold yourself around the needs of others, particularly in a long-term relationship or marriage. Much of this is automatic; so much so that you may not have recognized the parts of your “self” you stifled in an effort to maintain the “status quo.” It can seem overwhelming at first, since it entails so much change all at once. But a more empowering way to view it could be as an adventure – of discovering new shades of yourself.

The pregnant partner isn’t the only one experiencing change during sex. For the husband, how he views his wife, and what attracts him to his wife can change, and ideally for the positive. In the above letter, this specific husband now sees his wife as sexier with her new curves, and with more confidence. He has also developed new meaning of what his wife’s body represents to him: he sees her body as symbolism of their shared creation, and because of that he feels more connected to her and wants to be closer to his wife.
In determining the ideal time to have a baby, there are many aspects of life to explore and discuss. If no answer jumps out right away, then it’s important to keep having these discussions because you will notice over time and depending on what’s going on with your life at the time, you’re answers (and your partner’s) may change. It is crucial to take inventory of your life and really assess where having a child fits into your life right now.
Just like with any approach to dating, the amount of time it will take you to find the right person and the right relationship is unknown.
