| | Re: How to show support for spouse
Reassurance of your suppport... Empathy is huge, really try to understand and say so, and if you can put yourself in their shoes to imagine how they must be feeling, say it, verbalize it. I don't think a lecture is going to help... unless the spouse has done something wrong. (It's very hard to answer such a vague question without any details).
Definitely sitting closer and being closer with the spouse in general. If they are stressed try to help them destress and unwind at home, a date night wtih fun would help. Distractions, so they don't overthink the situation would help. Again its very hard to offer specific advice without knowing what you are offering support about... different situations may call for different things.... as an example, a grieving spouse requires something different than a spouse who is stressed with some sort of financial loss.
