Let’s be honest here. No matter how beautiful it is to marry the love of your life, marriage brings a lot of challenges. Still, you’ve found a person that makes all of it worth it, and you couldn’t imagine spending your life with anyone else.
You probably never thought that you could love your husband more than you do now. Through all the hardships, challenges, ups and downs, you know he’s the right man for you. How could you possibly have feelings deeper than this?
By watching him become a father, of course! It will feel like falling in love all over again. Parenthood is a wonderful experience. Not only because you’re blessed with a little ray of sunshine you can hold in your arms, but because you see each other in two completely new roles.
You never saw your husband be a dad. It’s a whole new experience for both of you. Of course, you probably daydreamed about it way too often, but you never had a chance to actually see him become one. Now that you see him grow into a father, it showed you just how amazing he truly is.
Although you know how loving and caring he is, he never saw this side of him. This mature, grown side of him that loves his child unconditionally. Here’s why it’s the most beautiful thing you can experience.
1. You watch him grow and become more mature
Think about the time when you two were still dating, and when you got married. I’m sure he’s changed a lot, and so have you. In men, these changes become even more evident. Women are usually a lot more mature while dating, while men grow by their side, trying to become better for the woman they love.
Once you got married, you saw him change and turn into a husband. Although you didn’t expect things to be different just because you signed a paper, they were. He changed, and so did you. You started taking life more seriously, and there were other things that became your priority.
You started building your future together. All those things you imagined while you were dating, started to come true. You worked hard to create a stable family and a nice, loving home. The role of a husband made him more mature because he was preparing himself for the biggest role of his life – being a dad.
And one day, he became one. Just like that, you watched the man you love transform right in front of your eyes. You thought you couldn’t love him more until you saw him take care of your baby. The role of a dad changed him in the most beautiful way possible.
Of course, he’ll still have his playful side that you love so much, but there’ll be a dose of maturity in him that you haven’t seen before. Don’t be surprised if the butterflies in your stomach suddenly appear again.
2. You share more responsibilities
Parenting is a lot easier when you have a loving and caring husband with whom you can share responsibilities equally. Unfortunately, society doesn’t put as much pressure on fathers to be there for their kids as they do for mothers.
Finding a man who takes on as much responsibility as you is a true blessing, no matter how normal it sounds. Although it’s definitely challenging, taking care of your children builds a stronger bond between the two of you. It requires more than just spending an equal amount of time with your little ones.
Open communication and making decisions are only the most basic things that shared parenting brings to the table. It’s filled with joy and happy memories, but also some tough situations that you have to learn how to navigate together.
This opens a whole new decision in your relationship, and you start to see your husband in a different light. Although there are some things you might disagree about, you’ll never be more grateful for having him by your side to go through all of this together.
3. He becomes the strength and support of your household
When you become a mom, you want nothing more than to protect your baby and your family. Sometimes, however, you can’t do it on your own, no matter how hard you try.
Seeing your husband take on some of the burden, because he knows how much you have on your plate, gives you a certain amount of comfort and protection you never thought you needed. You always saw yourself as a strong and independent woman, and those things will never change.
However, as a mom, you’ll go through a lot of challenging moments that you’d have a hard time going through alone. Having him to comfort you and be the pillar of strength you need is a beautiful thing to experience. It shows you that he’ll be there to protect you and your baby, always, no matter what.
His unconditional love, support, and encouragement become something you and your children rely on. The role of a father is far from an easy one, but knowing his wife and kids feel safe because of him makes it all worth it.
4. He becomes your child’s role model
One of the main reasons why fatherhood made your partner more mature is because he wants to set a good example for his kids. They look up to their dad, and he becomes their main role model. You’ll see him become a better person for his children, and it will make you feel like you’re falling in love all over again.
He’ll realize that his children see him as an example of what they should be like, so he’ll think about the qualities he demonstrates. Over time, you may notice him become kinder, more patient, open, and more empathetic.
He wants you to trust him that he’ll be good to you and your babies, and he’ll do everything in his power to guide your children onto the right path.
