In last nights episode of Kourtney and Kim take Miami, Kourtney Kardashian received a rude awakening when her sister, Kim Kardashian, told Kourtney that she was going to lose Scott if she did not stop putting her kids before her boyfriend. Kourtney has made it no secret that her children are the first priority in her life. However, Kourtney took Kim’s advice and made an attempt to rekindle the flame in her romance with Scott Disick.
Kourtney planned a trip to the European metropolis for herself, Scott, and the kids. Scott, not realizing that Kourtney meant for it to be a romantic getaway, invited some friends to come along. Kourtney was upset by this but they still went ahead on the trip. Then Scott “accidentally” stood up Kourtney at the Pont Des Arts Bridge. The two were supposed to meet up and perform a little symbolic ritual to show their love for each other.
Scott not showing up to the Pont Des Arts Bridge reinforced why Kourtney has pushed Scott away in their relationship. But Kourtney putting all her attention on her children has made Scott feel insignificant, and like he is just there to be her baby maker. The couple has been going to couples counseling for the past couple of years.
Another celebrity couple, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, take a different approach to their relationship with each other and with their baby. Giuliana says that her “secret to a happy marriage” is to put her relationship with her husband before their baby. Giuliana explained to US Weekly: "The best thing we can do for him (Duke, their son) is have a strong marriage. I always say to Bill, 'You were my first baby,' because he was. He was my first love and my first baby, and Duke is my second."
Many mothers and women out there disagreed with putting your spouse before your children, but relationship expert Mel Robbins agrees with Giuliana's style. Robbins says that focusing 100 percent of your attention on the kids first will create many problems in your relationship. "
