Examples of marital in a Sentence

  1. Deborah Carr:

    Some forms of marital strain can be protective, but support can be stifling, marital conflict does n’t necessarily mean tension and discord, it can be squabbles over things like, ‘ why did n’t you take your meds ? ’ .

  2. Anthony Burgess:

Love comes into it too, of course, but in Europe we tend to see marital love as an eternity which encompasses hate and also indifference: when we promise to love we really mean that we promise to honor a contract. Americans, seeming to take marriage with not enough seriousness, are really taking love and sex with too much.

  5. Janice Kiecolt-Glaser:

    There have been animal studies that show that stress can lead to leaky gut in mice, and studies with clinical depression that have shown the same, but this shows that chronic marital stress can lead to greater gut leakiness, and that leakiness is very much associated with inflammation.
