Six Ways Intimate Conversation Strengthens Your Marriage

By Mary Elizabeth Dean|Updated June 23, 2022

Intimate conversation is the cornerstone of any healthy marriage. Often, the only thing that sets a marriage apart from a close friendship is intimacy. The details of intimacy don’t always take place solely in the bedroom. An intimate conversation with your partner is also important when you want to have a strong marriage.

Your partner is likely the person that knows you best in the world. That is due in part to the intimate conversation that you share. When you are talking to your partner, speak freely and from the heart. When you are married to someone, you don’t need to worry about being judged or looked down upon. Your spouse is that one person you can trust above all else. Cling to that; you are sure to have a healthy, happy, successful, and good marriage.

You Can Trust Each Other

Do You Want To Strengthen Your Bond With Your Partner?

When you know your partner in the most intimate ways, you have a special trust and bond. Sharing in intimate conversation helps to strengthen this by helping us learn new things about our partners.

Trust is one of the most important cornerstones of a happy and healthy marriage. Building trust through intimate conversation is the best way to reinforce this trait in your partnership. When you have trust, you will both be more relaxed and at ease in the relationship. There will be no need to have doubts or suspicions about your partner or what they are doing. You can have mental peace, knowing that they have shared the most intimate thoughts with you.

When you know this solid foundation in a relationship, you will experience the happiness you deserve. Marriage should be a special bond that no one else could share with you. When you take the time to share an intimate conversation, you are setting this relationship apart from all others. You have made a vow to each other to spend the rest of your lives together. The best thing you can do is spend these years in trust and love. You will know the deepest happiness possible if you do.

You Know One Another’s Innermost Emotions

Understanding how your partner is feeling and why is a big part of a healthy and supportive relationship. When you have profound discussions about this, you build a strong basis of understanding and support in your marriage.

The intimate conversation surrounding how we are feeling isn’t always easy to facilitate. Often, we hide our feelings in a marriage for fear that feelings will get hurt or that the relationship. We might also hide our emotions to spare our spouse the burden that we carry. While this may seem to be a good idea on the surface, it certainly isn’t doing your relationship any favors. If you feel caught up in your emotions, having an intimate conversation with your spouse about it is your best bet.

Taking the time to know and understand how each person in a relationship is feeling is key to success. How can you be supportive of your spouse if you don’t know when they have an issue? If you have intimate conversations about this often, you are likely to get to a point where you know how the other feels without ever saying it out loud. This can help in avoiding arguments and also in helping direct a spouse to take action when a problem arises.

You Feel Special

Intimate conversation is shared with people that you love who are closest to you. When you share this with your spouse, you are acknowledging that this person is special to you.

So much of being in a marriage has to do with making sure you are both feeling loved and secure. The idea of marriage is that you have chosen to spend your life with this one person and that no other human on this earth will have the chance to be intimate with you. That is a sentiment that makes you special and sets you apart from the crowd. Intimate conversation dials that up. Choosing to share this information with someone you trust and love is the epitome of a happy and secure marriage. We all want that for ourselves and for the people we love.

Your priority should be to make your partner feel special in your relationship. The best way to do that is to share an intimate conversation. This is important because intimacy is not just a physical thing. The mental aspect of it is what keeps us coming back for more. When you are intimate in every way possible with your spouse, your marriage will be the strongest as a result. The happiness and security that you will feel from this connection with your partner will be unmatched. That is the key to a strong marriage.

You Have A Unique Bond

No one else in the world is likely to hear or know about the things you talk about. This sets you apart from the crowd and strengthens the bond that you have.

When you share an intimate conversation with your spouse, you are creating a unique bond. Information shared between the two of you that never knows the outside world brings you together in more ways than you realize. When you choose to share your innermost thoughts and emotions with a person, you will share this bond for life. Even if you move on to new relationships outside of your marriage, you will always hold the bond of sharing intimacy.

This is the best and easiest way to strengthen your marriage. When you choose to share the things you feel passionate about freely, you are opening your world to this person you love. The most successful of marriage are great partnerships. If you allow your spouse to get inside your head, you will create a bond like no other. You can then enjoy the fruits of your labor in the strong and happy marriage that you have created. This is the ultimate goal of any happy couple.

You Get Affirmations

Intimate conversations about the state of a relationship often affirm both parties. When you talk about how you feel about your partner and the relationship, you are likely to put some doubts to rest in the process.

Many people struggle with thoughts of doubt surrounding their partner’s feelings or the relationship. Intimate conversation offers a great opportunity to talk about how you are feeling and lay those worries to rest. It also eliminates the need for one partner to constantly check on the other to be sure everyone is on common ground. When you have a frequent intimate conversation, you will already know your partner’s feelings, so there will be no need to doubt.

We all doubt something in our relationship at one time or another. Even the most in-love couple with the most seemingly perfect relationship will have their share of struggles. It is normal to have doubts, especially in the long term. The process of engaging in intimate conversation is a great way to combat that and to be sure that you are both feeling happy and secure in the relationship. It also offers a wonderful opportunity to make changes where changes are due in relationships that are struggling.

If you are willing to share openly the way you are feeling, you will have access to fix any relationship problem that might occur.

It Draws You Closer Together

The intimate conversation draws couples together in a special way. When you set time aside to have a deep talk with someone, you learn things about one another that you might not have known before.

It should always be a primary goal in any relationship to constantly work on and strengthen your marriage. The best way to do this is through intimacy. The conversations you have are largely a part of the viability and happiness of your marriage. When you take time to talk to one another, you will be building a bond that can stand the test of time. Making time for your partner is the best way to strengthen any marriage.

Drawing closer together when you are facing tough times is the best way to protect your marriage. Talk deeply and freely about all the things that are in your mind. The result you will see is an ironclad marriage that works for all parties!

Counselor Reviews

“Cris Roman saved my marriage. His approach to therapy taught my husband and I the skills we needed to change the way we communicated and the way we understood each other. He is very non-judgemental and helps each person make sense of the others' feelings and actions without taking sides or placing blame. His ability to make you feel heard while helping you to see and understand why your significant other is acting a certain way is phenomenal.”

“My wife and I decided to give online couples counseling a go after finding traditional methods weren’t all that suited to our busy working and parenting lifestyle. Our counselor Donna Kemp has been amazing! We both feel she’s listened to us and given us the confidence to step out of our comfort zone to deal with problems that are easy to avoid. She is encouraging without being pushy. We’ve both responded very well to her and her methods and look forward to continuing on with Donna. Highly recommend!”
