Connecting at a deep level can only happen when both partners take risks at becoming vulnerable with each other. The connection also requires staying in contact and supporting each other while navigating sensitive emotions. When spouses learn to successfully deal with risky and sometimes painful emotions, they discover new heights and new levels of peace in their relationships.
The three keys for connecting and staying in sync are eye contact, touch, and the ability to stay present, slow down and pay attention to the partner.
Studies show that spouses who feel secure in their marriages are very likely to reach to their partner for emotional support and communicate very effectively.
