How to Have a Mentally Well Marriage




May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we believe that you should think about how you’re going to go about your marriage once you’re married. While you’re planning your wedding or buying your flowers, have you thought about the future and how the two of you are going to stay mentally sound? Having a marriage where both parties are at good mental health is important, and here are a few reasons why.

For the Family

If you’re planning to have kids, being mentally well is important. You must be able to make rational decisions while parenting and do what you feel is best for your child. Within reason of course. Being mentally well is important not only for your health, but for the health of your future family.

For Your Spouse

Having strong mental health can help your spouse be a better person as well. You want you to set a good example for your spouse, and the same can be applied for your spouse too. With the two of you having strong mental health, you can help build each other up like never before.

For Yourself

Finally, you should have strong mental health for your own future as well. When you’re aging, having strong mental health can keep you sharp and keep you up with people even half your age.

How You Can Grow Mentally With Your Spouse

With that said, here are some ways you can grow with your spouse.

Always Have Goals

Some people like the idea of settling down, but we believe that you should never settle. Instead, you should look for your next goal and try to make some plans to achieve it, with your spouse working alongside you to help. Accomplishing goals can help you grow as a person, and plus it just feels good to reach one of your life goals.

Embrace Disagreements

As a couple, you will get into fights. No matter how close or alike you are, you will have your differences. Some people don’t want express disagreements because they want to keep the peace. The problem with that philosophy is that it’s possible for you to explode on someone after years of bottling things up. So express your grievances in a calm and collected manner. This can help the two of you find the solutions that you’re looking for.

Have Alone Time

Just because you’re always together doesn’t mean you don’t have different hobbies. Having some time to yourself isn’t a bad thing, and you should look into having a night out with the boys or girls, or taking some time to do your own hobby. A bit of alone time is always good.

At the Same Time, Spend Time Together

If you have a job that keeps you apart from your spouse for too long, this can be a problem as well. You don’t want to feel like you’re growing distant from the love of your life, now do you? It can be hard to have jobs that allow the both of you to spend more time together, but try to do it if possible.

Finally, Talk to a Counselor

A couple’s counselor isn’t just for couples whose marriages are falling apart. Regular counseling can help the two of you grow as a couple. You can air out disagreements and plan for the future in a safe area and be able to find things about each other that you may not have realized before. We say that counseling is definitely worth looking into for the future of your marriage and to improve your overall mental health.
