Is there a widening gap in your marriage? One that you aren't sure how to bridge?
That gap, which can leave you and your spouse feeling isolated from one another is more serious than you may realize.
The No. 1 cause for divorce today is lack of communication. Just a decade ago, it was adultery, but today failing to communicate, communicating poorly, or just letting the emotional gap widen between a husband and wife can be fatal to marriages.
Because of the differences between you and your spouse–your different personalities, different upbringings, different ways you approach life – you have enough of a gap. But when one of you goes into your emotional cave instead of communicating, leaving the other to deal with the feeling of being shut out, that gap widens even more. Whether it’s you who retreats emotionally or your husband (or both of you), it’s essential to look at healthy alternatives to emotional withdrawal and ways we can keep connected so that the gap between you and your spouse isn’t allowed to widen.
Here are 10 ways to narrow the gap in your marriage:
