We watched as our kids each shuffled through the security line, took off shoes and set computers in gray plastic bins and passed into the netherworld that airports are behind all those barriers.

We ate dinner at home and shared some red wine. It should have maybe been more momentous, but dancing along the edge of joy and sadness made it hard to really figure out what to do.

First Love

We did stop to marvel at the idea of not expecting anyone home that night. Our apartment has an elevator that opens into the place and you can hear it and watch the numbers change when someone has called it. We used to sit and listen to the beeps and wait to see if our door would open, and one of the kids would be home. And so we settled into life with just us again.

Empty nests are perfect for love and sex

We have the place to ourselves. The house stays mostly tidy and there is so much less laundry, I almost forget to do it. Same with the dishes.

Living in the Shadow of the Empty Nest

Melissa Ferrari's Blog offers tips and advice about relationships, parenting, love and life. You discuss everything about your child. Their first words, steps, celebrating their first win at sports, how they are settling in at school, how many friends they have. As they grow older you discuss when they should be given access to technology, which adds another layer of stress as you obsess about what they are viewing, who is contacting them and are they being bullied.

Add to this the endless hours of the Mum and Dad taxi service, sleepovers and seemingly endless birthday parties they must attend, and is it little wonder that we can struggle to find time for each other. Then one day, the whirlwind comes to an end as your last child elects to leave the nest and you are suddenly back to where it began with your partner, feeling like two strangers in your now empty home.

If you cannot rediscover what drew you together in the first place, then it is likely your relationship will end.

What the Empty Nest Feels Like From The Inside

So if you have disconnected from your partner and the kids have left or are preparing to leave the nest, what can you do to make your relationship as special as it was the day you first met? Relationships can be challenging, but they can also be incredibly rewarding and having someone we love and care for in our life is important. So do not give up on your true love without a fight. If you and are struggling to breakthrough on your own, then remember you do not have to do this alone and by seeking help from a qualified counsellor can help you turn your relationship around.
