- UNDERSTAND WHAT EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION IS ALL ABOUT.
The number key to solving communication issues in marriages is to first have a proper understanding of what communication is all about. Communication is a skill that needs to be developed. As with any skill, some people seem to be able to master it quite easily while others have a harder time. Still, even if you belong to the latter group, it is possible for you to learn to convey your thoughts in a pleasant manner, to communicate effectively.
There are many couples that deep inside they yearn to express how they feel about each other. Others, though, decline to do so. Why? It may well be because it takes a measure of effort and skill for them to let others understand how they feel. The reason some families are torn apart and couples divorce each other is because such families/couples were not talking things out when faced with crises.
What about husband and wife that have tried to express their feelings but were unable to keep the conversation in a positive note. Instead of building a closer relationship they found themselves embroiled in repeated arguments.
