Remember to Prioritize Yourself
Taking on the responsibility of adopting a pet is similar to the responsibility you hold when starting a family. While cats and dogs are way less fragile than babies, they still require a lot of care, love, and attention. "This new priority can easily shift the dynamic of your relationship and, of course, your sex life," Maria told POPSUGAR. Why? It's hard not to love our pets infinitely. "Sometimes we forget that they are indeed just animals, and put them before our own priorities. This can impact the time put aside for romantic and intimate moments with your significant other." Remember that you matter, too, so make sure you needs are still being met.
