With two babies of the family together, it may come down to who is going to care of whom. Can they offer as much attention as they seek out?  Can they handle the mundane tasks of the day and set long-term financial goals?

For this to work, they both need to learn to be decisive and more responsible in practical matters. It would be wise to divide chores and duties and hold the other accountable for their share of the responsibilities. 

Both need to relinquish the limelight and allow the other to shine from time to time. They must also actively listen to their partner in heated exchanges instead of thinking about what they’re going to say next.

And, of course, they need to maintain their sense of humor, which should be easy enough for these two.
