Good Question

The question asked on Facebook was this: Who comes first in a woman's life? Husband, Father, Baby daddy or Son? 

There was a lot of great answers. 

Mine was pretty much the son should come first. Kids should come first above all else. 

These were a couple of the replies that really made me think. 

My initial answer was that the son/kids should always come first. But if you go by God's word- God comes first, then the husband and then the rest of the family.  My mindset for the last 9yrs was always that my kids came first- Period.  

I think that is a mindset that single women have- kids come first. Which after God- it should be.  But once you get married everything changes. I really think that its a hard concept to switch to, especially when you have has the mindset of kids first for so long.  You get used to that and so do the kids.   I think it is hard to switch priorites especially if the man you are marrying isn't the father of the kids.  

Maybe that is part of the reason that many blended families don't work. The woman has always put the kids first and once there is a man there it is a constant struggle of who to put first. Your husband wants to be first... the kids are used to being first.  It can be a very hard battle. 

What are your thoughts?
