Relationship Guidance – How to Handle Your Creative Spouse


Problems in some relationships can be attributed to the lack of understanding a very creative spouse. What do I mean?

Do you adore a person, may be your spouse who also happens to be extremely creative? Researchers have discovered that creative individuals’ brains differ from others’ brains; therefore, relationships can be difficult.

“We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.” – John Lennon

But, it is possible for you to have a relationship which is healthy and joyous with a creative partner.

Attempt the tactics below with your creative spouse to improve your relationships:

1.     Creative individuals can exist in their personal world

Does it sometimes seem like your partner is on a different planet or world?

  • It is vital you comprehend that they are not this way to upset you.

Creativity is capable of mesmerizing an individual and making all things surrounding them fade away into oblivion.

2.     Creative individuals require space

They require an area and time for creating their drawings, and writing books and other concepts to make these a reality.

  • Your relationship is going to be strengthened if you provide your creative spouse with room and comprehend the reason they require it.

3.     Creative individuals can experience emotions deeply

Does your creative spouse belong to this group? Creativity is normally connected to emotions and creative individuals are normally susceptible.

  • The relationship you have will be determined by the way you handle their emotions. Do they break into tears easily and are not able to cope with heartache well? Do they require additional sustenance from you?

4.     Creative people experience feelings of attachment to their work. Compliments uplift them while criticisms weigh them down.

It is not simple to divide the artist from the work and they might feel attached to what they have created.

  • When you have a greater comprehension of your partner’s job, this will boost your relationship.
  • When you recognize the way positive or negative emotions have an impact on them, you can then devise methods of assisting them.

5.     Creative people love experimenting with new theories and concepts

But, this can cause problems in the relationship. Does your creative spouse like pushing to the wall to view the outcomes? It is vital to find out the reason they do this.

  • The concepts your spouse has might appear far-fetched and unattainable. But still, you can show your support of their ambitions to make it different.
  • Creative individuals take chances; however, they do not always succeed, or get the outcomes they anticipate. It is vital to talk about things in a relationship, prior to taking chances, so that the two parties can foresee the results.

This will assist you both in feeling valued and concerned in decision-making.

6.     Creative People Operate in Cycles

Cycles are normally full of times of relaxation and activity.

  • Cycles are natural and your spouse’s creative cycles are natural. Creative individuals normally experience lengthy periods of work and relaxation.

7.     Creative people require a support network

They might not readily confess that they require support.

It is possible for creative individuals to have a stubborn streak and may be adamant on working alone and doing things personally.

  • But, support networks can help them. Your love is among the greatest supports they possess in their lives. 
  • You can include members of the family and friends to increase the support network.
  • Creative individuals require motivation and helpful comments. They require having the ability to talk about their concepts and problems in a secure manner.
  • They can gain from teachers and mentors as well.

Creativity can be costly and a creative spouse can experience stress in relationships if they’re misunderstood. But, there are methods of looking at problems and solving them to make your relationship stronger.
