People can be so complicated and some of them make assumptions without knowing the whole story. If hurtful things are said it can make the other person feel upset. It is better to be gentle when discussing difficult matters than get angry. So many marriages fail due to a lack of communication. When a couple split up it might be because they can't communicate well together. What do you think?

I couldn't agree with you more. Getting angry is not doing any good for people involved in conversation. It apply to any conversation or discussion....yet many people are having problem with clear communication....

I do agree communication is one of the main reasons couples split up. It is only when couples communication openly with each other to avoid any misunderstanding and guessing what is on the other's mind. This is no problem even if the couple cannot share the same interest and beliefs, which are some reasons why couples split out due to different interest and beliefs.

Yes of course, you are absolutely right! Good communication is the only solution to many problems. Sometimes we may have not committed some mistakes. But someone might have misunderstood that we did it. Usually, in situations like this, most of us just initially try to explain. Later, we get angry and at last the relationship gets broken up. If we communicate properly, almost all the problems will get an end!

Lack of communication is at the root of so many problems. It is amazing how something is said in front of a few people, and each person takes what is said a different way. I have noticed that I need to work on communicating. I keep thinking I am clear, but in a particular relationship I have, I think the issue is that neither one of us understand each other. We don't work on making ourselves clear.

Yes, normal communication sometimes can be hurtful to certain people, especially when one is at the top of his head. What we need is an "effective" communication in order to avoid conflict, it is a learn skill that will teach the communicators the necessary skills to avoid unnecessary statement n word that incite hatred, hurt, attack , etc on others, but some will argue it is part of human behavior to spew hurtful statement on others, sigh!! So i guess clear communication is not important in human interaction for tham.

Hi, people mind is very complicated, you very right. When they will learn that a simple way to see things is much better, they will communicate much better. A relation where is much love can be distroy only in one min just because of bad communication. When both start to say...i ll wait, until he want to talk with me...and he say..i ll wait until she will talk first...here is finish of relation. Pride, unclear communication, stuburness, ca make a good and nice and full of love relation can be just a memory.

i agree with you and also a lack of clear communication might be why people on here are getting offended when they post discussions but dont give the full story about what they want help or advice with. I agree that communication is important not just in marriage but in any relationship.
