Within that, we put our own relationship and love as sort of a foundation for our kids, it holds our family together so to speak. It shows our kids the example of how we want them to be in a relationship one day, how they deserve to be treated and loved. Does that make sense? I haven't had my coffee this morning... Anyhow, I liked the read, thanks for sharing.
This. Exactly.

I don't think that Neely's needs come before the needs of my children, but if Neely and I aren't doing well as a couple the rest of our family suffers. I think what she is talking about is not physical, tangible needs of the husband over the children, but making your relationship a priority because in the end, it is the foundation that the rest of the family needs.
