How do you communicate in your marriage?
July 17, 2008 6:11pm CST
Listening to your spouse is very important.Don't interupt,have an open mind and give feedback when needed.Once your spouse had told you what he/she feel then its your turn.Don't blame,don't interrupt and don't lecture.Explain your side and come up with a plan together.You can do this by having an effective communication.Make time to spend alone.Never bottle your feeling.If something is bothering you say so now so you don't explode over little things later. Compliment your partner regularly.Remember little things do really count.

Yes thats very good information there,but remember its a two way thing and in return he must also listen to you,communication is all important and once you hava a breakdown in communication it becomes very difficult.If you can both be as honest and open with each other as you possibly can,and as you say listen to each other ,then that is half the battle

I haven't a partner but I do agree it is the little things tha matter in any relationship and listening and discussing and not bottling up is the key really that stops things from blowing up and beoming arguements instead. Good discussion topic. Ellie :D

Thats really good advice msedge...I needed to hear that the other day, my husband and I got into an arguement and it was over something stupid, actually is was my own doing. I try not to let things bottle up, and I try to let him know how I feel, but he's the one who won't listen to me. If I'm trying to talk he'll interrupt me, and I can't get any words in, I always tell him, wait your not listening to me, but it don't work. I think we both have to have the last word..lol. But it does make me feel better if I can talk about my feelings, cause like you said, if you don't, you'll explode over something little later, and it will just make things worse. thanks...

This is very good advice to give to married couples. I have always believed that communication is one of the most important things in a relationship. Bottling things up never works because it is possible to get angry later and say something you can't take back. It is very important to listen also. Always try to be open and objective and it could make for a successful marriage.
