Building a Stronger Sense of Trust with Your Partner

94: Building a Stronger Sense of Trust with Your Partner

What exactly is trust? 

Trust is an important component of almost all social interactions in the context of a close marriage relationship. 

Trust refers to the level of confidence you have in the other person, that they will act in ways that fulfill your expectations. This confidence is realized both mentally and experientially, providing a sense of security and assurance in the spouse’s behavior and motives. 

Thus, you carry expectations for the way your spouse shows up in regards to being trustworthy.

In this episode of Couch Time, I’m taking a deep dive into what trust really means in an intimate relationship and how you can build up a stronger sense of trust with your spouse. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • [2:59] – What actually is trust? This is what you need to understand
  • [4:34] – This is the most important aspect of trust in an intimate relationship
  • [5:08] – How the level of trust in your relationship can impact it
  • [7:28] – This is what people in high-trust relationships are like 
  • [9:19] – What the science and research really say about trust in relationships
  • [12:05] – What does it take to regrow trust once it’s been betrayed? Here’s what needs to happen

I hope this episode inspires you to take a look at the trust in your relationship and take action if it needs repair. Remember, to be able to trust, people must take the risk of trusting by giving their spouse a second chance to renew trust in the relationship. You may risk being wrong, but if you don’t try, you can never be right.
