Can communication problems break a relationship?

Yes it can! The key to any relationship is communication. It is necessary to help you understand your partners needs and wants.  If those needs aren't being fulfilled, one or both of you will be unhappy, resulting in your relationship being filled with sadness and despair which could then turn into a complete failure.

It most definitely can. A relationship without a good flow of communication is doomed to fail. You need to be able to talk to your partbner and understand them. One can only do those things by communicating with them. In turn, the same must be done for you. It is a two way flow of information.

I think when two people are willing to work through things nothing is impossible. Two people are always going to disagree on things, it could be small things that get on the other person’s nerves, but it shouldn’t be the reason to give up on a relationship. I think the most important thing is to try.

Lack of communication can break any relationship. if it is difficult for the moment to have open conversations you may start with messages :) Little notes on the fridge wishing a lovely day or a message on the mobile "what would you like for dinner". Small gestures of attention and consern may lead you to a chill chat soon :)

For sure, communication problems can break a relationship. Communication issues are usually one of the number one causes of failed relationships. To survive in a relationship you need to build good relationships if you want to have a real one. If you are okay with just sailing through life without really connecting to your partner then you may be okay, but if you are having problems with your partner, you need to have good communication skills. Communication is key to a good relationship and can definitely ruin one. If you are not a good communicator and there are issues you need to work through, definitely ask someone else who is for help.

Communication problems can definitely take a relationship to the breaking point. Withholding your concerns and emotions from your partner can create a strained relationship. Miscommunication leads to misunderstandings and potential arguments. It is very important to be open and to express your feelings as well as your needs. This is something both partners need to practice on a daily basis.

Communication is a bridge people to share thoughts, emotions and needs with each other. A communication breakdown can severely affect this exchange of thoughts and causes spouses to feel like they are strangers. It is through communication that a spouse can learn of what his or her partner wants in the relationship, and keep them satisfied with the marriage. A communication breakdown may fuel dissatisfaction and even lead spouses to speculate negatively about their other half.

Lack of communication is second only to lack of trust in destroying a marriage. There is always hope for a relationship if both people keep talking, even if it is heated. When there is silence or refusal to discuss issues, there is a real problem. Try to sit down facing each other, hold hands if possible, and try to voice what you are feeling.

Marriage is all about communicating with your other half. If you don't talk about anything to each other, it can be hard to understand what is going through the other's mind. There also cannot be progress in a marriage if communication is moot. People are changing everyday, so communication helps us to keep up with it.
