3 Things Every Successful Intimate Partners Have in Marriage

Without emotional intimacy in a marriage, spouses become two business partners or roommates living under the same roof. When there is emotional intimacy in a marriage spouses feel respected, loved and appreciated. Emotional intimacy provides a sense of security for the marriage. Without emotional intimacy  a marriage is diseased.

How do couples become business partners?

1. By not handling negative emotional appropriately - To address negatives emotions a couple needs to be open and honest with each other. In addition, a couple who seeks to have a resolution that will bring health to the marriage will overcome the consequences of negative emotions. Winning is not the objective but a solution that will help the marriage.

2. By not meeting each other emotional needs – Your spouse has an innate desire to feel loved, respected and appreciated. When emotional needs are neglected, the marriage is at a vulnerable state.

Thank you so much for sharing Ann. Respect and appreciation are really essentials in marriage. By giving the benefit of the doubt we avoid so many unnecessary arguments. It can be hard to focus on the positive, but you are right no spouse is perfect. We really have to focus on whatever is lovely, good, and pure.

All VERY important steps to increase intimacy. Respect and appreciation I think are especially important and ones that many times are overlooked - we tend to focus on flaws and small annoying habits rather than seeing our spouse through eyes of love that always believe the best. Sad to say I've been guilty of this in the past.  Isn't it interesting we can see something annoying our child does and overlook it and give them the benefit of the doubt - yet not so with a spouse, as if we expect perfection from them!
