January 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 142

Marriages are built on the foundation of respect, trust and most importantly, communication. But the problem happens when you and your husband are in a long distance relationship setup, because communication will be greatly affected. Due to lack of communication, the issue of distrust would kick in, as a result of suspicion and doubts. So here are tips to help you endure these issues relating to communication within a long distance marriage.

Be Open to Your Feelings

If you have doubts or suspicions about your partner being unfaithful to you, then be vocal with your feelings by admitting to him what you really feel. Tell him about your fears and inhibitions and explain to him why you feel that way. By knowing what you feel about him, your partner would then exert an effort to remove all your doubts and inhibitions.

Make It a Daily Habit to Talk

As I mentioned in the beginning of this article, communication is one of the most important foundation of a marriage life. Without it, you can never expect your relationship to work, whether you are in a long distance setup or not. So as much as possible, make it a habit to spend time with your spouse talking over the phone daily, or chat with him online or do some video conferencing.

Encourage Your Kids to Communicate with Your Spouse

In order for your long distance marriage to work, you must encourage your kids and other family members to communicate with your spouse as well. Although as a wife, it is important that you constantly speak to your faraway husband, you must also include your kids with your conversation and if possible, ask them to join you in your conversation. Your kids could also serve as a constant reminder to your spouse that he should remain faithful to you and your marriage life.

Have Some Sense of Humor When Talking to Your Spouse

Being far from each other is not an easy feat, so look for ways to make your conversation with your spouse as fun as possible. Erase all the loneliness that your husband feels by making him laugh in between your conversation because your sense of humor will definitely make him feel better. And if possible, share to him only the good news, and not more on the bad news.

These are just some of the best ways on how to make your long distance marriage successful, and ensure that your relationship with your spouse will remain secure. Remember that proper communication is the only key for your long distance relationship to work, although you must also have the patience and determination to make your relationship survive despite of all the hardships that you are faced with. In the end, it is not only you and your spouse who will benefit from a successful marriage, but all your kids as well.
