The late spokesman Steven Covey once said: “Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundation principle that holds all relationships.”
It’s not enough to know you trust your spouse, you have to show that you trust your spouse. Here are a couple questions to ask yourself:
- Can I share my deepest secrets with my husband/wife or is there anything that I am holding back?
- Does my behavior around others show my spouse will know that I am faithful even if I’m away from him/her (travelling etc..) for an extended period of time?
- Do I tell my spouse that I am confident that he/she is a problem-solver and helps me through the tough times of life?
If you can’t answer “yes” to the self-check above, take some positive steps to start demonstrating your trust in your spouse today!
The amazing thing about trust is that once it is shown it is often reciprocated. Some people start off their marriage by drawing up agreements about what will happen if they divorce. That does not show trust. Rather, make up your mind together that nothing is ever going to break your marriage apart.
When you start your marriage with trust and nurture that trust, you are building a solid foundation for years of happiness…together.
