Is it true that spending more time together is always better?

May 5, 2010

Time alone matters in a marriageThere is an old piece of “marriage advice” that goes like this, “The more time you spend together the better the relationship.” This is only true only up to a certain point. Many couples are of the mistaken notion that they are to be constantly attentive to their spouse. While their intentions are good, their desire to be attentive causes them to, in fact, interfere with the quality of their communicative relationship with their mate. The desire for too much closeness can inadvertently drive a wedge between husband and wife. Isn’t that ironic? The recognition and practice of the absolute need for privacy and aloneness is, in our judgment after analyzing thousands of interviews, a fundamental predisposition of successful marriages.
