Therefore, it’s impossible for them to validate you.Knowing the other person, genuinely knowing, is the cornerstone of intimacy.Your spouse will realize that change goes way beyond no longer being ugly with you.This may take time, and perhaps help from outside sources. It is akin to noticing how your child is improving in math or picking up a language.These are the new things that you will be able to talk about.Your spouse opens the door to intimacy when you know that he/she has heard you.

So you have allowed one person into your inner world, in the course of being together, and each step of the way you felt understood.
This person, in return, continues to be intrigued by that process of knowing you, and wants more. That is part one (how your partner makes you feel).
Not only is this person validating you, but his very being (because it’s so much like yours) validates you all the more. (Incidentally, if you don’t see this, you do have to plumb the depths to find it. The surface includes a host of differences, but deep down you’ll find the sameness.) So what’s “falling out of love”? You have opened up your soul; you’ve been vulnerable, and what did you get for it? The betrayal doesn’t have to be as raw as cheating, although it can be that.
But even ignoring a spouse when he or she is talking is betrayal. How in the world can you get back to opening yourself up to someone who has hurt you?
