In every marriage, familiarity with each other is important in trying to keep the relationship last. Couples must know each other in every level in order to understand how the other one thinks, acts and feels. This can help in trying to foster a lasting relationship. Here are some of the important things that you should know about your spouse.
Their way of saying “I Love You”
People have different ways of “saying” those three little words many spouses love to hear. Sometimes, spouses do not hear them at all. That is because your spouse may be someone who feels a bit shy saying it outright. Some people are so reserved that they are not that good in showing you their feelings. It also applies to many spouses.
While your spouse may not say “I love you” often, that does not necessarily mean that there is no love between the two of you. Sometimes, a spouse may show it instead of just saying it to you. He may be an action type of guy who prefers doing things as an act of love. That is why it is important to discover just how your spouse exhibits those terms of endearment. That way, you will recognize it more often and acknowledge it by doing the same in some other ways.
What he or she loves about you
A relationship starts with attraction. By the way your relationship has led to marriage or cohabitation, it is an indication that you like each other a lot. The problem is some couples do not really have an idea what it is that attracted them to each other. You need to know this about your spouse. Try to discover what it is that he or she liked about you that made the relationship blossom into lasting love. Whether it is a particular body part, character trait or talent, you need to know what it is.
How they process thoughts
It is also important to note how your partner thinks. Some people have different ways of analyzing a situation. Some may become more subdued and quiet while others become more vocal. The differences can sometimes cause a strain into the relationship if a spouse does not understand it. Try to know how your spouse reacts to certain situations and how they try to cope up. It can help you a lot in trying to understand each other by the way you think about things.
Their medical needs
On the practical side of things, it is also essential that spouses learn about certain medical needs about each other that may warrant some attention. When you know that your spouse is diabetic, try to learn about the disease such as treatment, dietary needs, and maintenance and disease management. It is important so that you will know how to pattern a home life that can address the needs of someone suffering from this or any other disease. You need to know each other’s background because it is important when you try to build a happy life together.
