My wife and I have been doing NPF for about two or so years now and it has certainly brought us closer together in many respects. There are other times, however, when it has been quite difficult. There are two main issues:
Issue number one, the minor issue, pertains to the periods of abstinence. We both find this very difficult and feel that these periods are some of our most stressful each month. Does anyone have any advice for getting through these periods? Any recommended reading?
The second issue is more serious. We have two children, 3 and 1, and I would like to have more children and the sooner the better. My wife does not agree and wants to wait a couple of years. She feels run ragged with the first two and just can’t imagine being pregnant with them right now or having another child in the house. The way I look at it, you don’t decide beforehand how you’re going to make it work, you decide to be open to more children, and when they arrive, you make it work however you can. (I realize it may be silly for me to be commenting on “making it work” when she is primarily responsible for taking care of the children). Does anyone have any recommendation for something that I can read or recommend to her on this general topic?
