They desire affirmation, to be validated, to be seen, and not be taken for granted. So that has nothing to do with being pregnant.”

Additionally, men with these high-stress jobs also crave excitement in their relationships.

“They enjoy those challenges and high-stress situations, and often, when you’re with one person for a long time — pregnant or not — we know that the excitement declines,” Orbuch says. “It’s inevitable in all relationships.
