Miscarriage can wreak havoc even on the most stable of relationships. Both partners in a marriage have to deal with the loss in their own way. Here is a good article on re-establishing your relationship after a lost pregnancy:
Re-establishing intimacy after a miscarriage
Dr. Trina Read, Calgary Herald
From the article:
"And so four to six weeks passes, and it is time to climb into bed with your partner to have sex. This is the moment things can go two ways: Your heartbreaking experience can bring you closer, or it can start to subtly whittle you two apart.
The key to becoming closer? Communication. Keeping the lines of communication open will strengthen the fragile intimacy that binds you together.
Miscarriage is fraught with so much emotion, there is an understandable propensity to ignore, deny and pretend it doesn't exist. It's the big white elephant of your relationship: omnipresent, but no one will discuss the fact it's there.
And it certainly doesn't help that men and women see the ordeal through a different set of eyes. The woman has had a front row seat from Day 1; while her partner has been sitting in the wings watching the drama of her morning sickness, excitement and extreme tiredness unfold. Hence, when the fetus is lost, neither appreciates the other's perspective."
