Many will feel that it will be parent as bringing up a child is not an easy task. There are too many things you need to be prepared as the child requires your attention. While being a spouse, it is much easier to handle as showering love for your partner is what you need to do.
I have my fair share of being a spouse and now a parent. Personally, it is more joys and happiness than being hard.
Both can be joyous. But parenting, I believe, is harder. Mistakes that a parent makes can affect a child for life. It is one of the hardest jobs on the planet but also filled with so much joy.
Hmm..I would have to agree that being a parent is way harder than being a spouse. In my experience being a mother is a non stop job while being a spouse is actually very optional. We have plenty of single parents in the world today.
Parenting is the hardest as parents we are role models to our children and they follow our habits or actions so parents got to feel secure in in their traits when raising their children. A spouse's life is much simpler.
i say, being a spouse is harder than being a parent. I could control my kids but not my hubby. He controls everyone around the house. It is hard to be a perfect spouse.
Being a parent. My spouse normally understands. My son is from a different world.
I think being a parent would be the more difficult, because at least with a spouse, both people in the relationship are adults. With parenting, there is the generation gap to consider as society changes. In other words, I think there are more potential obstacles to consider with a parent/child relationship, than with spouse/spouse.
