I am in a thread right now and one BG mama is upset that I said I love my SO more then my kids but I would never tell them that. I bolded that part because no one seemed to read that part. A lot of woman said that they do love their children more then their husbands.
I want to know for those woman, what happens when the kids leave? What happens when the kids move out and have families of their own?
Edit; Not asking if who you love more, just what are you going to do when they (the children) leave.
I get what you're trying to say....
But I don't see it that way. I see the love I have towards my children as a completely different type of love than I feel for my husband. I don't see it as being more or less.
Its a different kind of love. If I ever needed to choose between my partner or my kids my kids would come first, its the same kind of thinking. Nothing will change when they move out and have their own family.

I love my husband a lot i love my baby alot. I love them both the same equally but in different ways.
I couldn't imagine my life w/o my DH or DS. I love them very much but in different ways. I am pretty sure I love DS more than DH. I carried him and felt him move and was in agony while birth lol. I donno, it's just me though
I guess I don't really think of it quantitatively. They're two completely different things.
My son is a part of me and that right there is a completely different bond than you will ever have with another human being. I was deeply in love with my ex but I wouldn't take a bullet for him like I would my son.
It's just different! I dunno, I can never really imagine thinking "I love my husband more than my kids" or vice versa.
