Spirituality describes the multifaceted connection between an individual and their spiritual beliefs and practices.
When spirituality is an area of agreement in your relationship, it can deepen the love you have for your partner and it will support your growth as a couple.
Be cautious, though, as spirituality is ever-changing and there may be times when you and your partner are at different points in your understanding and expression of your spiritual journeys.
Sharing beliefs with each other and discussing your preferences for practicing and expressing spirituality will strengthen this area of your relationship.
While it isn’t about trying to make your partner meet you where you are on your spiritual journey, it is about learning to support one another and integrate spirituality into your relationship to increase your sense of intimacy and satisfaction.
Your spiritual journey can be a key area for reflection and discussion with your partner.
- How does spirituality strengthen your relationship?
- What activities do you and your partner do both together and separately that make your spiritual bond greater? Pray together? Go to church together? Pray for each other?
- Do you set daily intentions for your relationship?
- How does your spirituality allow you to be more connected to your partner?
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.
