When a couple is in sync, the brain subconsciously emits open gestures, makes you become less guarded and hence more approachable, starts mirroring the other person so you gradually find yourself warming up to your partner, and these cues can be visible to an eager eye as well. To see how powerful body language can be between a loving couple, here are some pictures of a famous Bollywood actor and his then wife, Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan. The couple had a romantic love story that recently shattered apart. See if you can spot the difference in the pictures.
In these two pictures, it is easy to believe the couple share a fairy tale love story. There is no doubt the two are totally in sync with each other, deeply in love. Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan are walking hand in hand. They are comfortable with body contact. Both are looking either at each other or directly at the camera, happy to be clicked as a couple. Suzanne’s head is held high with pride. They are even mirroring each other’s walking style, with both of their right foot forward. Both have open gestures, with no closed arms or hands in the pocket.
These two pictures narrate a different tale. The hand-in-hand pose is missing in both pictures. Hrithik is finding it difficult to display a smile. In the upper picture Suzanne is showing a self comforting gesture by touching her own hands and an asymmetrical shoulder shrug, probably uncomfortable with the couple’s picture being clicked. You can see her faking a smile for the cameras in the two shots. These last two pictures are in all probability already speaking of the rift between the husband and wife which later ended in a divorce.
Close observation does reveal the comfort that any couple shares with each other. In marriages, as in any other type of communication, the body does its own talking. This can contradict words, if the words are lying.
