Emotional closeness is the degree of nearness in terms of similarities of thinking,likes and dislikes,tastes and attitude to life.Couples staying physically closer togethar may be living far apart emotionally.If you sincerely care,share,feel cocerned and give a patient hearing to someone staying far off from you,you are emotionally much closer to him/her. Persons staying togethar under the same roof and sleeping in the same bed live emotionally far apart and miles away from each other,if their attitude and tastes greatly differ.Couples who are often indulged in arguments and mud slinging verbally and at the level of thinking do stay miles away emotionally. How much emotionally closer are you to your spouse?

Unfortunately, my husband and I are really not close at all. Ask him though, and he would say we are. He is emotionally blocked, and although it has gotten better over the years, I still can't get over that wall he has. He is a good guy that needs a lot of work, in an extremely subtle way. I'm hopeful that one day I'll get through to him!

I am always a emotional guy and always very close to my spouse and reactions are always based on emotions rather than feelings, my spouse too closely attached with me..i too believe on emotional relationship after all what we live for

i think i am emotionally close to my wife. she knows me inside and out as i know her that way too. i think that is the number one reason why i really liked her for mthe very start that i met her. she was easy to talk with and she is straight to the point. i want people to tell me straight to my face what they want for i am not a mind reader. of course we are physically close as well... thats where the nice part comes in har har har
