One of the reasons why we marry is for companionship. That desire to have someone close to your heart. This companionship can be enhanced through effective communication among couples.
In a healthy and loving marriage, couples talk freely, openly, and feel that they are safe when they share their most private thoughts.
They comfortably voice their worries and feelings when difficulties arise and express gratitude when things are good.
Both partners talk respectfully and not in an accusatory manner or with hurtful or critical insults.
They listen attentively, trying to understand what their partner says with empathy
rather than interrupting their spouse and pointing out what’s wrong in what they are saying.
At the end of the talk, the couple feels positive about the
conversation, and feels like their concerns have been
understood and acknowledged.
Have a lovely marriage
