Trust your partner for a smooth married life

Guest post by Amanda Kidd

Love, care, passion are all inseparable parts of a long-lasting marriage. But one more factor is very important to consider pampering your married life—and that is trust. Trust serves you with the confidence, relaxation and a deep, comforting feeling of forever togetherness. It means that you have confidence in your partner and believe in your partner. We need to learn to trust our partner, but some people find it a hard to do. Let’s consider few of the situations where you can lean more into trust.

Tie the knot and your trust too

At the time of marriage, make a decision to do your utmost to trust each other and be open and honest with one another. Give your partner the benefit of the doubt, and have faith in him or her.

Trust your partner even you are away

If you are away from your partner, don’t get suspicious. Think positively, and give your partner the benefit of the doubt (especially if they have no history of cheating). It may happen that when you tried to reach out to him/her, she didn’t respond immediately. If it happens a few more times, it’s natural to get worried. But lean into trust, or your partner could become resentful. Simply wait and ask your partner about his/her day and the gaps will likely be filled.

Beware of backbiters

Your marriage is going smoothly but some people in your life may simply start speaking ill of your partner in his/her absence. Stop it right there. Then keep people who are negative or who sew seeds of discontent at arm’s length or further.

Trust his/her opinions

Disputes and quarrels are part of any relationship and hence, of married life, too. As you both are very different personalities, it is obvious that differences arise. Share your point of view, then hear your partner’s views with an open mind. Discussion ends the problem in a healthy way, but argument makes the disagreement worse.

Show your trust

Demonstrate your trust to family or friends. When others understand you are united, there will be fewer attempts to divide you.

  1. There’s a lot of truth in this post. It’s often difficult to believe that our spouse has our best interest at heart. Sometimes the simple reminder “I’m on your team,” is all I need to change my perspective. For many, including myself, trust doesn’t come naturally so these tips are very beneficial. Thanks for the insight.

    • Glad the tips are helpful. Couples who use “we” and “us” and feel like a team are definitly more bonded and fare better in the long term. Best to you.

  2. I am all about being honest and communicating as much as possible about every aspect of married life. I think it’s only natural for doubts and insecurities to creep in from time to time, but the more trust there is, the easier it is to disregard these. It’s such an important area, and is well worth working on if it is a particular weakness in the marriage. An interesting read with some great tips.

  3. I agree and I think over time that trust will grow and the insecurities will diminish if both people have been trustworthy and if one practices trust.

  4. How can you trust a person who hurt you not one but many times. He told me that its over between him and this girl only to find out that they still see each other.

  5. For spouses who have been unfaithful, I believe the requirements change. They need to prove they are being trustworthy to earn back your trust. And you can’t rebuild your marriage until and unless he is willing to stop the affair. I wish you the best.
