Emotional Support Builds Strong Marriages

affection

If your marriage didn’t work out, it’s important to look at the things you did individually that could have had a negative impact on the marriage.  A major component to any good relationship is emotional support.  This is what helps build trust between two people, whether dating, friends, family members, or even colleagues.

Emotional support can consist of giving compliments, checking to make sure the person is feeling okay, holding hands, sharing affection by telling someone you love them or care for them, offering help, cuddling, and other affectionate gestures that show you care and are interested in this person as they are.

It’s when one spouse or both stops showing affection that the other may start to wonder if there is any love there anymore.  If one spouse doesn’t seem to care, eventually the other spouse will give up trying as well.  Marriage is like any other long-term relationship; it takes work to keep it running smoothly.  The more you make it part of your regular routine to be affectionate and caring, the less it will seem like a chore to remember to do so, and it will become a natural part of your relationship.

If you want your next marriage to work, don’t take your relationship for granted by becoming lazy.  Don’t start thinking that your relationship will remain stable and healthy regardless of the amount of effort you put into it.  Learning from past relationships or a past marriage, and those of others, you must realize that a marriage will not survive without effort.
