Communication in a relationship is one of the most problematic issues we as couples face. There is no disputing the fact that effective communication in a relationship is the vital ingredient to its success or failure. When communication in a relationship is poor, minor issues can accumulate and build until there is no hope left of reconciliation. One of the difficulties in establishing communication in a relationship is in understanding the differences between the sexes. I think communication in a relationship with honesty is always important.
Relationships take work and time to develop. Relationships don’t need to break down if you can find a way to communicate more effectively. Relationships work effectively when truth is acknowledged. Misunderstandings are most visible in those relationships where one partner assumes that the other partner already knows something, or should know something. Its not at all uncommon for even the best marriages or relationships to hit a bump in the road to happiness.
Partners in a positive, loving relationship have learned how to share loving communication with respect, honesty, kindness and understanding. Once a marriage has broken down, neither partner feels inclined toward communication in a relationship nor do they wish to open up to the other person. When your partner shares a concern or problem that he or she is having with your marriage, don’t resort to an angry retort. Every time your partner shares something, no matter how little, express your gratitude. Tell your partner, “I’m glad I know that you like that/feel that way/believe that.
Women need to talk out their anxieties, Men just don’t do that. Women need to be able to talk to their partners. Women are by nature jealous creatures, by nature they need to feel beautiful, wanted and needed. Men need to recognise that women have a richer and fuller reservoir of emotions; women need to recognise that men do not have the range or the ready access to emotions that they do.
Always talk things out between yourselves before they get worse and never let lack of communication lead to misunderstandings and distrust in any relationship. You can get your spouse to open up to you again by creating an environment in which he or she feels safe and comfortable talking. Your partner may feel that you never give him or her a chance to speak because you’re always talking.
Marriage, like any other partnership, requires hard work, compromise, open communication, honesty and selflessness to be able thrive and grow. In many marriages, partners zip their lip and say nothing, repressing their feelings until resentment seeps through.
Open up healthy channels of communication and your perceptions of each other will change for the better. Open and Honest communication are the key to make any relationship work well. Open the lines of communication with your partner; be sure that you understand each others needs and wants, and learn to compromise to meet these.
I’ve had problems with good communication in a relationship in the past, and I’ve learned from my mistakes. There is no barrier stronger than that of no communication in a relationship. Open lines of communication in a relationship are important factors in keeping it going. Think it is important to have respect, trust, understanding and always great communication in a relationship. An estimated 75% of all married people are dissatisfied with their marriages at some time and 55% will eventually divorce.
