Marriage Communication

Communication in Marriage

Most marriage counselors agree that communication can either make or break a relationship. Couples who know how to effectively and openly communicate with each other experience fulfilled relationships, empathy and true intimacy with their spouses. But on the other hand, those who don’t are likely to experience a buildup of anger, frustration and resentment.


Perhaps, it is true that effective communication in a marriage is the single most important aspect of a successful relationship. By freely communicating with your spouse, you open the doors to nourishing and growing your relationship. Though it can be challenging, learning to love and respecting your spouse and communicating with them in an intimate way can make your marriage a truly beautiful union.
