Communication in Marriage

Expert Marriage Communication Tips

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.

But, lack of effective communication skills in either of the partners reduces the chance of being heard and understood. Developing the art of listening is one step towards building up a healthy marriage. Cultivating the right set of marriage communication skills like the power of listening can tactfully address situations and save many marriages.

A lot of hard work and dedication is required out of both the partners to arrange for a smooth flow of words between the pairs. Effective communication in marriage can take place when either of you makes an effort to find ways to connect with your partner. Simple and day-to-day affairs can become unique and romantic if you keep the external hindrances away from breaking the rhythm of words and emotions flowing between you two.

You can try a couple of things to get the communication going

1. Pick out specific hours in a day and share few private moments together. This simple step can turn out to be the perfect way to connect with your partner and lend your ear to their problems.

2. Definitely turn off the television and keep your phone on the ‘Aeroplane Mode’ while talking. This single effort can do away with any hindrance which is likely to suck attention away from one another.

3. You can arrange media-free family mealtimes now and then to enjoy a heart-to-heart conversation over a glass of wine and meatloaf.
