This historical article discusses findings from a study that investigated the impact of a child on 46 married couples with children. Findings indicate 38 of the couples experienced extensive or severe crisis in adjusting to their first child, the crisis pattern occurred in marriages that were good or poor, and the 38 couples had romanticized parenthood and felt they had little, if any, preparation for parental roles.
