People are different and in a marriage, two people of different up-bringing, goals, thoughts, feelings and sometimes cultures have to live together and complement each other. The only way they can achieve a level of oneness is by listening to each other, talking out their views and reaching an understanding that would make both parties either satisfied or close to being satisfied.
Communication is not only verbal. Non-verbal means of communication such as body language also counts. A partner may not say much but buy a birthday gift which reflects and at the same time communicates love. In many cases though, discussing is the best means of communicating in a marriage as it leaves no room for misunderstanding.
As people live together they get to learn their partners and discover the best time to discuss issues, the right tone to use while solving problems as well as the words that work magic in conflict resolution or persuasion of one’s partner.It is advisable that each couple agrees on a time that is set apart just to talk about anything in their relationship. This could be daily or even weekly depending on the couple’s schedule. But this agreement doesn’t mean that one has to wait until the set time to relay any concerns to their partner. As the couple continues to enhance their communication, their bond also continues to grow much stronger.
