Can a Marriage Survive Without Trust?
The absence of trust in a marriage creates a negative impact on the relationship. It can lead to separation. So can a marriage survive if trust isn’t there? That would be a big no. It is like baking a cake without sugar. You don’t want to eat it because it lacks sweetness that makes it tastes good.
It is the same in marriage; trust is one of the most important ingredients in the relationship between husband and wife. It is one of the most essential factors in having a good marriage. It is putting your confidence in your spouse and believing in them.
Try to imagine your relationship without this element. A relationship that is full of doubts is not easy to have. You can encounter a lot of problems from time to time. You are always anxious every time you are not around your partner or with anything he or she does. The absence of trust can also make you sensitive and resentful. Having these on your plate will give you and your relationship no nourishment.
If your partner gives you his or her trust, take care of it. Nurture it. It is easily and heartily given but once broken it is very hard to gain it back. Prove to your partner that you are trustworthy enough. Show them that you are willing to work on their trust to make it stronger. So try to act on what you say. It is through your actions that your spouse can see that you give importance to the trust given to you.
However there are certain circumstances you can hardly stop. Betrayal of trust might be one of them. If this happens, you need to strive harder to gain it back. By doing so, you have to double the effort when you try to rebuild it. It will need more of your time and patience to earn it back. Another thing that you must do is convince your partner that you are worthy enough to be trusted again.
Regaining your partner’s trust should be done as soon as possible. If this is not addressed immediately, it may grow to a more serious problem where resolving the issue is impossible.
A marriage cannot survive if there is no trust. Nonetheless, trust can be regained. Even though it is not easy, it can save your marriage and possibly make it stronger.
