If you do not want your marriage to break up, then it is vital that you learn how to communicate effectively. You may not be surprised to know that most marriages break down due to communication issues. Well, at least ‘communication issues’ are the triggering point for the breakdown of the marriage. Here, we want to discuss a little bit about why communication is so important.
Couples argue. They argue a lot. Sadly, this is what happens when you are together almost 100% of the time. You are bound to have your differences. Now, you can argue the night away, but you are not really going to get anywhere. At the end of it, you will have chipped away a small amount of the love that the two of you share. You may regain this love. You may not. If you keep chipping away at that love, there will eventually become a point where the two of you simply cannot stand to be around one another. This is the point where your marriage is going to be virtually destroyed.
Most arguments can be rectified simply by listening to the other person’s point of view. You have to remember that communication is not just about talking to somebody. It is all about listening. When you argue, you are both adamant that you are right, albeit for different reasons. You are not going to get anywhere with this. You will be able to ‘nip the arguments’ in the bud by sitting down and communicating. Let each other put their point of view across and, of course, the other listens at the same time. You will be surprised at just how many arguments you will be able to solve by doing this! Sure, you are not going to be able to rectify everything, but you will be able to deal with most arguments. The best part is that because you have communicated, you will know how a person feels about that particular situation in the future. This means that the issue is never going to arise again.
You also have to remember that many arguments out there are caused by misunderstandings. Again, this is something that can be rectified by communicating with one another. I am sure we have all seen those rom com movies where the simplest issues are blown wildly out of proportion. A single issue could have been rectified if the two people spoke with one another. It really is going to be as simple as that! This is probably the same thing that you are going to be doing on a daily basis. Make sure you do not do it.
Finally; communicating will ensure that problems do not ever get out of hand. Don’t like the way your husband folds his laundry? Tell him now! Do not leave it until the last minute when there is an argument. Tell him. Husbands, not a fan of how much your wife watches television? Tell her!
