Thats right, I do remember that show. I hadn't put much thought to it since having my own DD, but since this thread, I remember it quite disticntly.
For me, I think there are so many different types of love. From the love of a husband, to the love of chocolate, to the love of your child and say the love of a warm summer breeze. There isn't one description or particular feeling that encompasses 'love' - it really varies.
As our little one is just that, little and defensless, she is both our priority. We both love her 100% and she comes first. In terms of our relationship, DH and I still love each other, actually probably more because we are just not two people any-more, we are also parents.
I don't see why you can't love your partner and children equally. But, a child is loved more in terms of they usually have two parents and then a host of other family members who love them lots - so as a whole, they are probably loved and nurtured more.
Great thread, really got me thinking.
DD is 3yr 8 months - DS is 6 months
