Everyone Understands that Love in Marriage is essential for happiness. People realise that lack of love in marriage can definitely lead to Sadness.

This article explains what goes around in our mind if we are in a love less marriage or if we perceive our marriage is loveless and how that turns into Depression. 

 

Let us first understand what is Depression 

 

Depression is a condition where our Thoughts become negative and painful. 

These negative thoughts keep impacting how we feel. So with negative thoughts, we feel down and sad throughout or most part of the day. 

The feelings regulate our entire mechanism of mind and body. If we don't feel right, we cannot do the right actions and thereby we cannot remain healthy. 

These feelings stop us from doing the right set of actions. Like we would want to stay up all day in bed instead of working. Or we would not work or do our best in work or we would stop dressing up.

These actions and behaviors will further feed into our negative thoughts. This thought feeling action will keep repeating and making us depressed and terrible health wise. 

This is Depression

 

Let us now understand how Lack of Love causes Depression

 

Neeta got married to Jatin. Theirs' was a love marriage. 

She left her home town, her space, her parents and just moved to Jatin's place.

Jatin was still leading his old life though .

He was working, had his routines with his parents and to him Neeta was one more addition. Somehow he couldnt see the need to do any extra stuff to make Neeta feel a part of the new system, his life and his space. 

Neeta was feeling unloved. She had nothing else there to occupy her mind to. 

This state led her to think that "Jatin doesn't love her" . These thoughts led her to believe that now

"her life will never be happy" . These thoughts kept repeating in her mind. 

Thoughts that she manifested, in turn affected her feelings severly. She became more sad, passive, hopeless and weary.

These feelings had an impact on her overall mechanism of function and behavior. She started pulling herself off from conversations, became quieter and started remaining in her own room. 

Her loneliness pushing behavior further aggravated her thoughts and thereby she got herself in the trap of Depression. 

 

So yes, Lack of Love in Marriage can Cause Depression

How to PREVENT Depression due to Lack of Love 

 

Love your spouse, if you see that they are starting to question the love in the relationship and are arguing. Don't shun their voices. Try and understand what is that is wrong with the pattern. Could it be that more time is needed together. Could it be lack of love and care? 

Before the chain of thought, feelings and action strikes in, make quality changes in your relationship.

 

The other thing that a partner who is feeling the lack of love can do is to work or keep busy. Find ways to keep yourself active in other spaces. Also try and communicate with the spouse openly about your thoughts, about your expectations. Let them hear you. Before you know their reasons, proactively stop your mind from making assumptions.
