I hate you I love you

2 kids they said. Have 2 kids! "Couples often think that children solidify a marriage but the truth is they are a serious threat. The transition from couple hood to parenthood marks one of the greatest stressors on the life of a marriage," says John Jacobs, M.D., A NYC couples therapist.
