You have to have a basic understanding of each other’s personality and some idea of how you can relate to each other.
It is important to learn to respect one another. Respecting your spouse would mean you are acknowledging that they are worthy. You will not make critical remarks about your partner in any way. You can tell if a person respects you by the way they treat your ideas and emotions.
Appreciating Your Partner
When you can appreciate your partner you will express this to them. Appreciating your partner means you recognize the value of the other person’s contribution to your relationship. Each person must expend their energy and abilities in ways that benefit their relationships.
Appreciating each other can be simply complimenting each other, thanking each other for things you are doing for each other. When doing this you are communicating your appreciation. Sometimes when people are so used to things the way they are, they don’t think about saying “thank you”, any longer for the small things because they are now taken it all for granted without even realizing it.
When your spouse’s thoughtful acts start to go unnoticed, they will start to feel unappreciated, and emotional distance may start to develop and communication may begin to lack. You can also show your appreciation by paying attention to your spouse’s talents and personality. By you complimenting them on their talents you can help them feel appreciated.
