Spirituality in Marriage

Share the wisdom

Although spirituality is an inward journey, having a life partner who aligns with you, can give a huge opportunity to grow. People often seek a partner who can resonate with them on fundamental principles, values, ideologies, and dreams. Spirituality in marriage is not a new concept, in earlier times, such resonance was sought in religious compatibility between communities.

When it comes to leading a content life, there is no right answer on which route to follow. Nevertheless, the end motive has always been the same. Marriages have been defined as an arrangement; where two persons can share their lives and fulfil their social, emotional, physical, and financial needs. However, if looked from the glasses of spirituality, there is a lot more that this arrangement can offer.

Marital relationships when lived with spiritual motives in mind have magical outcomes associated with them. Marriages built on the foundations of spirituality reap the fruits of healthy fundamentals.

Benefits of spirituality in marriages:

Aligning to Priorities

So often we tend to get carried away with the worldly responsibilities and the lustre of the material world that we lose the perspective of purpose behind working for those arrangements. It is common under such circumstances that the couples start to feel drifted away from each other. 

Spirituality brings the focus back to where it’s needed. It helps to connect at a deeper level and provide a sense of purpose in relationships.

Greater Resilience

Spirituality can provide couples with a sense of hope and strength in difficult times, helping them overcome challenges and maintain their commitment to one another.

Relationship Consciousness

Spirituality provides greater consciousness and separates you, your partner, and your relationship with them. When the three are looked at individually, each one is more likely to receive individual nurturing.

Open Mindedness

We all have flaws and opportunities to be a better version of ourselves. Spirituality enables us to be more receptive of our shortcomings and helps our partner to easily communicate those to us.


This is the most beautiful gift that we can give to our relationships. All relationships should have a breathing space to commit mistakes and learn from them. Spirituality strengthens us to forgive ourselves and others and let go of things in the past. Remember, the journey is enjoyed more when the baggage is less.

Spiritual Practices For Couples

This can be done individually or as a couple and can serve to connect with a higher power and find guidance and strength in times of need.

Acts of service and compassion

This can be as simple as volunteering together at a local charity, or as profound as sponsoring education of underprivileged children. By serving others, couples can learn to put the needs of others before their own and find fulfilment in making a positive impact in the world.


Relationships are a great place to start practicing gratitude. Couples provide so much to each other for which they should be grateful. We often fall short of appreciating those little, large gestures. Acknowledging those things and being grateful for them can be a good start towards being grateful.

Meaningful conversations

Incorporating spirituality into a marriage can also mean having open and honest conversations about one’s beliefs, values, and principles. This can help couples to understand and respect each other’s perspectives and can lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation for one another.

It is important to note that spirituality can take many forms, and that there is no one right way to incorporate it into a marriage. Each couple should find what works best for them, whether it be through prayer, meditation, volunteering, or any other practices. It is also important to be open-minded and respect each other’s beliefs and practices. Additionally, spirituality is not a panacea, all couples will still encounter challenges and struggles of their own. However, incorporating spirituality into a marriage can help couples to navigate these challenges with greater resilience and grace.
