5 Ways to Build Trust in Your Marriage

Do you find yourself getting jealous of your spouse? Are you worried that your spouse is going to step out on the marriage? Trust is the foundation of a strong marriage, but that does not always mean it is easy to maintain or build. As a marriage therapist in Winter Park, we can help you and your spouse create a relationship built on trust. Although it takes work to build trust, it can be extremely beneficial for growing your relationship into a stronger, deeper connection. These are a few ways that you can build trust in your relationship.

Be Faithful

The simplest way to establish trust is to stay faithful. When you step out of your marriage, you break the bond that you have and this can ruin your trust forever. Although some couples do the work to repair the damage after infidelity, some can never get past it. To avoid making any large mistakes that breach your trust, you should always stay faithful. If you find your eyes are wondering, you should address what is causing that to happen before you act on it.

Follow Through with Your Promises

When you say you are going to do something, do it. Following through on your promises will build your credibility and make you a trustworthy person over time. If you are constantly making empty promises, your spouse will eventually learn to not even listen to you. TO make sure that your words carry meaning, you should always follow through on what you say you are going to do.

Respect Your Spouse

Make the effort to show your spouse that you respect them. Listen to them when they talk and show that you are listening by adding simple touches throughout your day. For example, if they talk about something they love, surprise them with these items later. This can be as simple as picking up groceries on your way home from work or bringing them a coffee when they talk about how tired they are. These are small acts that will establish trust over time.

Be Open

Talk about your emotions and your feelings. When you are in a marriage, you should be able to open up about anything. Make sure that you are do not hide secrets or lie about where you are going. Instead, tell the truth. This is a simple way to live when you are in a marriage that is built on trust and love.

Practice Forgiveness

When you fight, you should learn how to forgive. Forgiveness can allow you to let go of certain things in your life, which can teach you not to hold grudges and speak freely about your emotions. Being able to forgive your spouse for things that have happened in your past allow you to let go of things and leave the space to heal and grow.

These are a few ways that you can build trust in your marriage. When you feel like your relationship is suffering from distrust or broken trust, you want to spend time rebuilding your relationship with our marriage therapist in Winter Park.
