Another important factor in the development in spousal depression is the result of the loss of trust or a safe feeling, which is essential to giving and to receiving love. As trust decreases, anxiety symptoms grow in a spouse’s life. Trust can diminish as the result of hurts in the marital relationship or in other important relationships. As it decreases so too does the safe feeling with the spouse and the desire to give to and receive from the spouse. Walls go up around hearts and distancing occurs by withdrawing, overreacting in anger or needing to control. All this emotional stress leads to a marked decrease in or a loss of a feeling of love for the spouse.
