How your relationship can survive children and what to do if it doesn't
by Melanie Roberts-Fraser and Oliver Roberts
Paperback, 2007, very good condition

Becoming a parent is a life-changing experience, and like all major changes parenthood can also be a major source of strain. Studies show that four out of five relationships are negatively affected by the demanding first year of a child's life and one in five parents will split by the time their children are school-age.

No Sex Please, We're Parents, based on extensive interviews with mums and dads, offers practical advice to help stressed out couples get some normality back into their lives and restore their relationship. Authors Melanie Roberts-Fraser, a family-law lecturer, and her brother Oliver Roberts, a counsellor, journalist and media advisor, give a unique insight into both the female and male point of view. They offer loads of tips which will help both sexes to enjoy the great bits about parenthood, brace for the bad and have the energy to maintain their life together as a couple, including a sex life. They also offer commonsense advice on how to do what is best for the children if the relationship can't be mended.

Some of the topics covered in No Sex Please, We're Parents include:
* What couples need to talk about before the baby's born
* The juggler vs the full-time mum
* How to continue communicating effectively even when you're both exhausted
* How to share the work-load of raising the kids and household chores
* The importance of support networks and finding time to spend alone as a couple and alone as individuals
* The effect of parenthood on body image and libido and how parents can get sex back on the menu
* Post-natal depression for both Mums and Dads and what couples can do to overcome it
