This article suggests that breastfeeding is ruining marriages...  
I just posted this to another community, so I'm sorry for anyone who gets it twice, but I can't even believe this article, and I'm so irritated/surprised that I have to share:

I have so many issues with what he has to say!  I can't even believe this guy is advising couples.  Ugh!

I read that yesterday. What a bag of hot air! I can tell him that I have been pregnant and/or breastfeeding for 8 years, through 4 children. Obviously our sex life has not suffered from nursing my babies and co-sleeping. (And my husband caught our babies! *Gasp!*)

I also disagree with putting the spouse first. My view will probably change as my kids get older, but the baby's needs come first. My husband understands and agrees.

I really disliked that thing about putting the spouse first. We're a family. Sometimes my needs come first. Sometimes Steve's needs come first. Obviously, always, we are thinking about what is best for Anya and what she needs. The way it is written makes it seem like a woman should always put her husband before *everyone*, including her children and herself. Just... ick.

I couldn't get through the first paragraph, I was so angry.

I had to read it in pieces, b/c I kept getting to points that were so infuriating that I couldn't read on.

I forced myself to read the whole thing and I find it just insulting.
