Better Marriage

Pretty sure I am not alone in hoping and wishing for a more fleshed out marriage scenario in future.
The mechanic of having children and growing old and then passing on your "game inheritance" to a son or daughter is one of the aspects of this game I was really excited for. I just hope that more dialogue options between spouses will be added in future; some things I like to see for example:
Having a dialogue about naming the child, there is no conversation at all right now during or after pregnancy to even acknowledge that your wife just bore a daughter or son and how are they doing?
I think it would be great for immersion sake to have some sort of interaction that acknowledges that you just had a child together.
I don't expect we will see cutscenes like those in the Witcher for example from this developer and I get that marriage in the times and cultures portrayed had little to do with romance, but some sort of interaction in dialogue at least would be great although I would welcome something to indicate intimacy to make the whole thing less mechanical.
The second aspect is the ability to consult with your spouse on major decisions, as for example leaving her dads kingdom to start your own, is she supportive and has your back? Decision making around your fiefs, would be great to get your spouses input on that, and then of course making decisions on who your kids should marry.
All that could be implemented in a dialogue with various options and consequences similar to the political voting system.
Right now I cannot talk to my wife about anything at all, how about a scene where she is the one telling me she is pregnant again instead of a pop up banner?
I know there are or were plans to implement at least a wedding scene like we had in Warband and that is welcome, but I hope that a bit more can be added to the couples interaction in general since the whole thing about having kids and them growing up and joining you is such a core feature of the game.
What do you all think on the topic?
