From a Christian perspective

1. God

2. Myself/Husband/Marriage

3. Children

THe bible does state your spouse comes first from my interpretation. I think if your marriage is solid your children will always be safe, sound happy and well taken care of. I see all the time where people put their children before their marriage and everything crumbles. your marriage it he foundation of your family so that has a priority in my opinion.

God, marriage, kids. If I personally don’t seek God the rest of my life suffers. I know this may not ring true for all but in my personal experiences this is true.

julieloolie :  If children are straining the marriage, it’s time to get yourself into Marriage Therapy! (And, thus again, recommit to improving your marriage instead of being distracted by all the millions of things a kid can want!) I have never in my life heard of someone giving up their kid to ‘save’ a marriage! That would never fix anything, but just pile on more shame and resentment!

1) God 2) Marriage 3) Children. I have found that it is a ripple effect of positivity if priorities are in this order. When I put God first, I learn how to be a better spouse for my DH and lift our family up through prayer. When we put our marriage second, we are investing in our future once the children are grown and gone, we show our kids what a loving and tended to relationship looks like, and we build a strong family foundation for our kids. When we put our children third, we show them the importance of God and marriage, we teach them a little independence, and we give them a more stable environment.

I’ll comment even though this is a zombie thread.

Don’t have kids yet (working on it), but all are equal except for God, because God doesn’t exist.

DH and I both agree: 1. God 2. Marriage 3. Children 4. Self.

I was raised in a home that successfully followed the above order. DH was raised in a home where the priorities were 1. God 2. Children 3. Marriage 4. Self. I absolutely loved my upbringing and would replicate it to a T for my own kids if possible. DH saw a few issues with his parents’ priorities and always knew he wanted to marry someone who would agree to put marriage before children.
