Marriage Communication

Communication is the lifeblood of a good marriage. No relationship can survive without it.

Many couples think that arguing is the worst thing they can do, but that’s not true. Unhealthy arguments can lead to trouble, but arguing itself is not unhealthy. In fact it can be very productive way to work out our problems—as long as it’s done lovingly and constructively. Good communication is critical, and sometimes communication leads to debate. It’s a give and take way to work out problems.

The worst thing a couple can do is to remain silent in the midst of trouble. When two people bottle up their anger, or refuse to communicate, what they’re doing is choking the life out of their relationship.

Don’t let personal pride keep you from having a vibrant and fulfilling marriage. Talk to your spouse when something is bothering you. Learn to have a healthy argument, and then never let a problem go without talking it through.
