I found this article in Forbes interesting, where they discuss the benefits of being married with children:


  • Family time relieves stress
  • Family teaches you to play well with others
  • Parenting = multitasking
  • Parenting improves self esteem
  • Marriage requires negotiation
  • Raising kids is leadership development
  • Leaving the office helps you find new ideas
  • Family helps you bounce back
  • Children help you develop patience
  • Spouses teach you to compromise

The one important note ‘Just having kids won’t make you a better manager, but being actively involved in raising them will, according to the study’

Interesting. It also makes you wonder ‘What did I use to do with my Saturdays? I must have had so much free time .. What did I do with it?’ (smile)
