Intimate Relationships

Intimate relationships are close and personal bonds that involve physical, emotional, and/or sexual intimacy. In the context of a spouse or life partner, intimate relationships are typically long-term, committed, and exclusive, meaning that both partners agree to share their lives and be faithful to each other.

Intimate relationships with a spouse or life partner may also involve legal rights and responsibilities, such as marriage, cohabitation, or civil partnership². Intimate relationships with a spouse or life partner require trust, respect, communication, and compromise, as well as mutual support, affection, and care.

Intimate relationships with a spouse or life partner can enhance well-being, happiness, and health, but can also face challenges, such as conflicts, misunderstandings, infidelity, or abuse.

Intimate relationships with a spouse or life partner differ from close friendships in that they usually involve a deeper level of intimacy, both physical and emotional, and a higher degree of interdependence and commitment.
