Bloomingdale divorce attorneyTime and time again, we hear about the many different factors that can contribute and ultimately lead to a divorce. While certain red flags have proven to be important in predicting the outcome of a marriage, identifying the qualities in a relationship that can boost the chances of success are just as crucial. Although the aspects that support and strengthen the bond of a life-long partnership may not prevent a divorce that is already in motion, knowing what to look for may help avoid one in the future.

Qualities that a Married Couple Should try to Possess

Marriage is a partnership that requires hard work and dedication from both spouses. If the aspects listed below are present in your relationship, experts believe you have a higher chance of experiencing a healthy, lasting marriage:

  • A safe-zone dynamic - It is no surprise that a key quality in every healthy relationship is a mutual sense of trust, but studies suggest that this can mean several different things in a lasting marriage. Not only do partners need to have faith in one another on a basic level, but husbands and wives should also be able to confide with each other and be themselves. Spouses who feel a sense of refuge in their relationship are more likely to experience a stronger marriage.
  • A balance between team identity and independence - The American Psychological Association (APA) states that couples who can work together as a team and build a sense of togetherness while maintaining their own individual identities often experience longer-lasting marriages. In addition, research also shows that it is important for couples to have some emotional distance from the family that they knew growing up, in order to separate their identity from their parents and siblings.
  • The establishment and protection of intimacy - Experts say that creating and protecting your intimacy is crucial in preserving the quality and longevity of your marriage. Whether you have limited alone time as a couple due to the responsibilities of parenthood, or you struggle with intrusive family or work obligations, anything that threatens the privacy you share as a couple, especially when it is consistent over a prolonged period of time, can erode your affection and damage your sense of partnership. Like anything else in life, finding balance within your marriage is imperative to protect the bond you share.
