Everyone has a few days when they feel too low and don't know how to pick themselves up. When you have a cheerful and supportive partner, those low days also turn to highs. We all hope for a person who would understand us completely and be by our side through thick and thin, especially the thin. If you're someone dealing with mental health issues you won't have to bear the burden entirely alone, as your partner is there every step of the way. All humans thrive when you show them kindness and accept them the way they are.
Those in happy marriages build a culture of respect and appreciation very purposefully, psychologist John Gottman told The Atlantic.
