INTRODUCTION: Every couple is full of hopes and dreams for their future. But the road to a happy marriage is far from easy and requires a high level of bonding and compatibility.
Today’s rate of divorce is high as many couple opt not to complete the journey. It would be easy to blame our high rate of marital failure on things like: not spending enough quality time together, lack of connection and failing to keep communication lines open.
There are many ways couples can build a strong bond together. Let’s take a look at few approaches of building bond with your spouse.
1. Support And Respect: part of the most important elements of a happy marriage is support and respect believing that what we see, hear, feel are validated and supported by those who matter. It is the absolute core of mental and emotional stability and also aid in connection building between couples.
2. Checking On One Another: love deepens when both partners know that in times of distress, they can absolutely trust that the other will be there in heart, mind and action. As the complications of all relationships evolve, it is far too easy for people to take each other for granted. Living a message or calling your spouse on a busy day may seem out of fashion, but it sends a message saying; “Dear! Despite my busy schedule, I have you in mind. I am thinking about you”.
3. Showing Appreciation: As humans, we constantly crave for positive attention and appreciating someone is the best way to go about it. When couple don’t even notice how they slip into the habit of taking each other for granted and not appreciating each other will be the beginning of marital issues. As couples they should develop the habit of thanking and appreciating each other for every little thing. Paying full attention when your partner speaks with you, these will make them want to continue the conversation. Appreciate your spouse for being there with you through thick and thin; acknowledge what you love about your partner. Make appreciating your partner a priority to keep the spark alive.
