Every successful marriage is built on and around the ability to express genuine emotions, accurately identify emotions and respond appropriately to them.
Marriage is the coming together of two people from different backgrounds to seek the same level of happiness and affection. Where congruency is not possible, a lasting marriage is not achievable, How could this congruency be achieved? It is with the help of a high level of emotional intelligence.
You must know when to insist on talking about ‘it’ by finding and using the right words that say, “We are in this together”.
Emotional intelligence makes you understand the fact that the other person is like you; feels pains like you do and needs comfort like you do. When you understand this, accept and apply it to your marriage, you build a great marriage for you and your partner.
