Today we're going to dive into Attachment Theory and how we can apply it to our marriage. Recent studies have shown how your primary attachments early in life dictate the strength of your attachments later in life, but how we can each grow to deeper levels of connection by simply being aware of our attachment style.
Attachment is defined as "a deep and enduring emotional bond between two people in which each seeks closeness and feels more secure when in the presence of the other.”
Attachment Theory is a set of principles regarding how people attach with others in relationships. Coined by psychologist John Bowlby in 1969, he states that when we form our primary attachment, we also make a mental representation of what a relationship is, which we then use for all other relationships in the future i.e., friendships, working, and romantic relationships.
We look forward to jumping in and discovering what we can learn about attachment and how it can help us connect deeper with our spouse.
