 How Strong Are Your Communication Skills as a Couple Quiz?

Communication is the key to successful relationships, whether we talk about marriage or friendships or any other interaction between humans. One of the reasons we invest time and effort in developing relations is our need to communicate feelings and ideas to people we care about. On the other hand, it’s the lack of effective communication that breaks relationships and marriages often fail because the two partners don’t engage in authentic communication.
