Baton Rouge marriage help

Being a great mother isn’t just about putting the kids first. It is also about pursuing your career if desired, finding free time for pursuing your own hobbies (even if that’s a workout corner at home) and fostering an environment where everyone is comfortable. Of course, it can admittedly be challenging to find time for marriage amidst motherhood, but at Red Stick Mom we aren’t afraid to discuss healthy relationships, divorce, dating and even your sex life. Whether your children were conceived naturally, became a part of your family through adoption or were welcomed after miraculous IVF, it can be hard to stay patient with the kids and our partners at the same time.

At Red Stick Mom, our team of 25+ local Baton Rouge mom writers have a ton to discuss with regards to marriage and relationships, as we all know that good relationships take intention, hard work and many times a healthy dose of therapy.

Keeping your marriage and relationships healthy and fun can be extremely hard, but at Red Stick Mom, we also believe that it is 100% possible with a little bit of effort and a great (and honest) mom community around you. Whether it’s a fun night hanging out at home, or getting out of the house to enjoy one of the best restaurants in Baton Rouge, we understand that sometimes you just need a nudge to enjoy time with your partner.

We’ve got ideas on how to keep a strong circle of friends and family, whether it’s ways to bring new people into your life or how to keep toxic people out of your life. We’ve also got thoughts on how to find time for marriage and relationships while maintaining a tough schedule

Learning To Love Sex And Have More Of It Being raised in a strict Christian home resulted in a lot of conversations about how to remain pure until marriage. I went to church camps explaining how sex was strictly for marriage, to save myself, etc. Fast forward to years later in a committed relationship ... now what? This thing I have been told my entire life is "bad" and "not good for me," I am suppose to just automatically enjoy?? Thankfully, I have a partner that is continuously willing to explore my sexual desires as well as unpack the emotional uphill that my upbringing brought on. We have spent years learning to love each other physically and emotionally. I can now...
Why I Choose to be a Great Stepmom When I met my stepdaughter, or bonus daughter as I like to say, she was the sweetest little six-year-old that I had ever encountered. She immediately bonded with my biological daughter who was three, and assumed the role as big sister gracefully and naturally. My husband and I were married within six months, falling madly in love with our blended family and our similar passions. My daughter’s biological father passed away when she was two, and my husband seamlessly and lovingly stepped into the full-time daddy role, adopting my daughter and becoming her superhero. The future seemed bright, but we had a very long and tumultuous custody battle ahead of us with his...
Both my husband's and my grandparents have been married for 70 years. It is an almost unfathomable length of time. It is incredible to think about the things that they have witnessed as a couple; the way the world, and relationships, have changed all while they were married. So who better to ask for relationship advice than people who have been through it all. Life, love, loss. Here is what they say makes a relationship last a literal lifetime. Date Your Spouse. I know it sounds silly or cliché, but clichés are clichés for a reason. Until a few years ago my grandparents had a standing date night once a week. They went out to dinner and a movie just...

It's not a hidden gem, but I could not write this without putting this in here. There is nothing like a cocktail, martini, or glass of wine while eating delicious sushi and watching the sunset while viewing the river.

I truly enjoy spending time with my husband. Sappy, I know. I love family time with him, binge-watching Yellowstone, communicating through memes and Tik-Toks, and that we are always a united front when it comes to our children. But even the healthiest relationships need a break from time to time. Taking the time to maintain healthy boundaries and giving each other space is important – especially after 16 years of marriage and 3 children. Romance Break Let’s address the elephant in the room - literally. Intimacy and desire in a long-term relationship seem to fade as couples settle into the daily routine and the comfortableness a secure relationship provides. Of course talking about what to cook for dinner, who is doing the...
