Is there anyone out there that has a husband that actually participates in a real conversation??? I really want to know his opinion on things. I think he tries, but I seriously think that we speak different languages.

somehow, I'm lucky that my husband is the type who I can talk to even for hours. I enjoy having conversation with him while having a lazy afternoon in the couch or even while driving. Most of the times we talk about random things but what I love is when we talk about our plans for the future. Because these talks make me realize how he values me not only as a wife but also as a best friend.

My husband and I have conversations all the time about everything. I really enjoy talking to him. We also laugh a lot together, we find a lot of things funny. and I just love that so much. But sometimes, I'll just be talking, and talking, and it's like at the end I'll ask "What do you think??" and he'll be like "yeah" or "ok", and I know that he didn't catch anything I said at all. lol. That right there is my fault because sometimes I do ramble on and on about nothing. He should be used to it though. When I met him, I would talk to him all the time, esp. when we would be lying and bed and he would be trying to sleep. So, he married me, so he already knew what he was getting into. lol.

You have a good question here. Sometimes it isn't always easy to engage the husband in conversation. As a woman I do have important things I need to talk about and need to have a serious discussion. Luckily for me I do have a husband who is willing to participate and communicate his thoughts so we can have better understandings. I don't think that I can stress enough how important openness and communication is in a marriage. It really keeps things flowing better.

Oh, yes I agree with you Bamakelly! It is very important to have good communication in any relationship! Most of the time the hubby is too busy with work that he can hardly pay attention to what we're talking about. However, whenever I get the chance to get him off his desk, we do enjoy the complete attention that he gives us! This is usually in the evening when the whole family is together having dinner, and during weekends when all the kids are at home.

I'm divorced now but my husband could never hold a conversation with me...he was very communicative with everyone but me actually. I have guy friends that are great to communicate with and our friendships are all platonic I wish I could find that kind of connecton in a guy that I was seeing but that never happened. I rhink it's a guy thing.
