me and my wife always have something to talk about. when i go out to work i still cant stop texting her and i still call her on the phone for a quick chat. before we sleep we always cuddle and talk about a lot of things. there are so much to talk about. when we are just still dating my sister always complaining that i use the phone from morning till evening and she is wondering what we are talking about and up to this date (married for six years) we do still have something to talk about. this is one of the nice things that i really love, we never ran out of something to talk about, to laugh about, to giggle about and to debate about. i think one of the best way for a sucessful relationship or marriage in particular is a good and open communication. when you lose interest and stop having fun talking with you partner the magic ends. do you still have something to talk about?

My husband and I have been married for 6 years too. We have a lot of things to talk about too, the only difference is we seldom call each other during office hours because I am too busy and its hard to get distracted. We just make up for it during night time and since we have two active boys, we usually get to talk after they go to bed. We try to always have dinner together, that is the time we get to update each other of what happened during the day. I guess the point in marriage is to keep the communication lines open so that the couple will grow together not grow apart as they become older. Though I must admit that there are times that we just have short chats, not the intimate converstation because we are already too tired.

congratulations to you and to your husband that you still have a lot of things to talk about. even it is only in the night time it is cool to see that you both are making the effort to have a talk no matter how tired you are for that day. eating meals together really is one of the important things couples do. thanks a lot for the response

Good day.. It's a nice advise. I just got married a month ago after being in a 9 year relationship with her. I am happier that we're married and just like you said a couple shouldn't ran out of things to talk about, laugh about and have fun together. I wish we could have what both of you have and we'll work on that.

Hi se7enthbird! I'm glad to know there are still many men out there who are like my husband! We too are married for six years and i have already mentioned my husband's ideal qualities in some posts here in myLot. This may sound weird to you but i prayed specifically for those qualities in a man. And God is so good! He gave me not just a loving husband to grow old with but also my "bestfriend". And how do bestfriends get along? Doing things together, helping each other, having fun, enjoying each other's company, talking about anything... and the most important of all, we talk about God, and we worhip the Lord together.

It sounds very nice. A communication is healthy for the marriage and relationship. My husband and I still have something to talk about. Sometimes we will have a text a little chat in the daytime when we are at work. We will talk about different kinds of things when we go to bed. Sometimes it's very late already. I love China

H[i]i se7, I agree with you...Relationship will be very boring and stagnant when couple stop talking and no more topics to talked about... We also find a lot of time talking even if hubby works for like 10-11 hrs a day and when he gets home! Communication plays a very significant role in any relationship![/i]

yes one of the most important that you really need to maintain in a relationship is communications. if you are no longer in a talking relationship it sounds like you no longer care about what happened with him the whole day. so i agree that a happy relationship is the one build with open communication. thanks a lot for the response

I'm really proud to say that I have a great family with a loving husband and two wonderful kids. We speak a lot together but we always run out of time as he is on tours most of the days in a month. We call each other almost 5 to 6 times a day when we are away from each other and I'm very happy with my life right now.

y husband and I talk quite. We both work, and have our own things to do, but we make time each day to talk about things that need talked about, and sometimes, we talk about nothing at all. I feel the closest to him when we do that. When e sit on the couch together and talk about things that really have no bearing on our lives, they are just interesting. I agree with you that communication is important in a marriage.

Me and the hubby can still sit and talk for hours every night easily. It seems we just never run out of stuff to talk about. But we can also sit in silence and just enjoy each others presence just as easily.

hi se7enthbird, You have a very nice topic. It is so good that your relationship with your wife is still warm and so sweet. Well, I am not married yet, but I have a boyfriend.We are in our relationship for more than a year now. I agree with you that the best way for a successful relationship is having an open communication.Especially in my case, I am in a long distance relationship and communication is really a must for both of us.I can relate with your topic because I notice that also in my relationship with my boyfriend. We never run out of topic. There is always something to talk about, to giggle, to debate.Sometimes we are so sweet that the only thing lacking is for ants to crawl on us. And sometimes, we fight that it leads to one of us will cry. But whenever I remember all those things that happened to us, I just laugh. I know that all of those are part of relationship. I believe that we just not have to enjoy all the sweet things in our relationship but also learned from our past mistakes which leads to debating,fighting and misunderstanding.Well, I can say that if both parties really love each other, of course there will always be interest or enthusiasm in communicating with them. Honestly, whenever I am chatting with my boyfriend, I rarely notice how time pass by. I always enjoy talking with him. We treasure every hour, every minute, every seconds that we are together.Sometimes he calls me on phone even just to say that he loves me and he misses me. It just made me laugh sometimes and giggle because even if we had a chat before that, it seems that it is not enough for him, so he will call me on phone.Thanks for posting discussion like this. It makes me smile. Great topic

nice reading your story. yes i agree that we all have our shares of ups and downs and short comings as well. i remember those days when my wife needs to work abroad. she was my girlfriend back then. that she would but a call card that has 75 minutes just for us to have a long talk. after that 75 minutes we will miss each other more badly. she was at japan so internet chatting is way out of the question for she still needs to learn to speak the language. it was really an expensive way of communication but we still did spend a lot just to have communications. har har har. so from the start we really do have tons and tons to talk about. thanks for sharing your story and i think it is fun to spend a life time with a person that you can talk anything under the sun. thanks a lot for the response

Hello friend. I agree with you that a successful relationship or marriage is a good and open communication. Both my wife and I also have quite a lot to talk about after more than ten years of marriage. It makes you feel so good when you can always have something to talk about, which is one of the essential steps to maintain a good relationship.

Your relation is really a charm to be noticed i have never seen such a relationship in my life time who dont need the world to be with them when they have the world within them. I am not yet married thoug but i want to follow your words of keeping the relation fresh forever. i wish every relation is just like yours even if there are fights even if there are tears i think everynight when you sleep that one warm hug removes every bad thought and anger away and makes you frsh for the next day... its really a good feeling to even think of the relation you share with your partner and i pray that you be this for the next coming 6 births ever... god bless

well i can see that you love each other so much thats why you have so many things to talk about.and maybe ,even you have nothing to talk about,both of you still want to talk and communicate.uhmm,me and my husband are different.we suppose to talk about so many important things but everytime we start to talk,it will end to a quarrel with nonsense things and issues.i want to communicate with him but i dont know why he dont have a time to talk to me especially theres alot of things i want to share with him and i really want to communicate with him.hes more on action than words,than talking.he's only talkative if his nagging at me.

Yes, we still have a lot of things to talk about. When we were on the way to work or back to home, we always talk about something all the way. Most of our topic are around our child, we have a son who is very clever. We often discuss his behavior is right or not, and find better idea to settle that. Sometimes we had different ideas,but no matter, because we all love our family, love our son. If only the love exists, happiness feelings always around us.
