Abstract [en]

The relationship between 60 first time parents-to-be were studied during pregnancy and when the child was 1 year old in order to find out if, and then in what way the relationship changes during transition to parenthood. Although the relationship was rated as highly harmonious by both women and men during the pregnancy, a significant decline in marital satisfaction was noted when the child was 1 year old. The men experienced an impairment what concerned financial matters, leisure activities, and relations to family and friends. Both women and men experienced an impairment what concerned closeness and sexuality, and a change in opinion about children and parenthood. The women scored, in opposite to the men, higher on conception of life at both study occasions, although they scored lower at the follow-up, The lowest agreement among the couples concerned leisure activities, and it was in this area together with opinion about children and parenthood and conception of life that the agreement had decreased most at the second study occasion.The family climate had changed in direction towards an increased experience of distance according to both women and men, and the men also experienced a decrease in closeness, If the decision to have a baby not had been a joint decision, or if one of the spouses ealier had thought of a separation, there was a lower marital satisfaction at both study occasions.
