Psychological factors in support of marriage

Languages of publication



This article shows that the factors preventing the breakdown of marriage are a mature personality, the ability to communicate and solve conflicts, religiosity, self-development and the family background. The first element is a mature personality: emotional stability, responsibility, mature motivation and correct hierarchy of values. These characteristics are very important for creating a deep and stable relationship, which is marriage. The next factor is the ability to communicate and solve conflicts. Proper communication allows the spouses to share their experiences, know each other better, build an atmosphere of openness and security, as well as resolve emerging conflicts. Another factor is religiosity. It allows one to create a dialogue with God and another person, as well as a non-egocentric attitude, which places God at the centre of life. A result of this is altruism of the spouse in the life of a married couple. Another factor is the readiness for self-development. Such an attitude does not allow spouses to hide behind their immature mechanisms of defense against weaknesses and mistakes, but tells them to take up the internal work on their liquidation and the result is that the stability of the relationship increases. Finally, the final factor is the family background, which is a natural space for the proper shaping of all previous elements. Thanks to this, people from such families will not manipulate their spouses to achieve their development needs but they will be shown the correct picture of a marriage, which will be the point of reference for creating their own marriage.
