how important is faith for you when you have a relationship with someone? are you the type who has all faith in the person you love? is faith in the person and faith in the relationship two different things? how much faith would you put in a relationship?

Faith is important in a long-term relationship because when things don't go well, your faith in a higher power can carry you through. Of course, it's important to have faith in each other. Without faith, there's no trust or hope and therefore, no relationship.

faith in the relationship and faith in the person are two different things. faith in the relationship would help you to hold on no matter what. you know that somehow how difficult it may seem, your love for each other would pull through. faith in the person can be associated with trust. it would really depend on the relationship on how much you are going to put faith in it. if it's real for you, you'd put much faith in it.

For me faith is very important not only in raltionships but also in our daily lives. Foremost, how could i love a person if i dont have faith in myself and in him, and how could we build up a relationship if there's no faith between us. Trusts starts in oneself integrated in his personality that radiates to others thus building up an assurance for a stronger and longer kind of relationship. Confidence is developed. If there's trust, there will be respect, loyalty and love.

Trust must become priority. Quite often we start out in the marriage relationship as self-centered persons. Consequently, we expect our spouses to be trustworthy persons, but we tend to assume our own trustworthiness. Thus we see very little reason to work at building trust. If we begin a relationship without seeing the need to develop a greater sense of trust, it is doubtful that we will make it a priority of relationship building. Thus it is no surprise that growth in trust often comes about only as a response to crisis.We cannot expect to achieve closeness with people unless we are willing to allow others to understand what we are like on the inside and unless others trust us enough to grant the same privilege. If we cannot trust one another in our marriage relationships, we will find ourselves in relationships that are less than satisfactory.It encourages others to reciprocate.it has the capacity to make marriage more satisfying.It frees us from the need to "cover up" things we don't want others to see.
