Make sure you are taking the time to listen…no, really listen to what they are saying. A lot of times what you fight about is just topics. Not the actual issue. Think back to what you are really mad/upset about and let’s talk about that. No sense in talking about his shoes being left all over the house when what you’re really mad about is that he never talks to you anymore.
Many marriages are constant works in progress. The time and effort that goes into making a marriage work is not what they tell you when you are getting engaged. If you are the one who doesn’t talk make a point to tell your spouse about your day. If you’re spouse is the one that doesn’t talk ask them about their day. Do some probing to find out more about how their day went even if they just grunt an answer at you.
Communication is always a 2 way street. It can’t be accomplished if only one of you is doing all the talking. Make sure you are doing your part and being an active participant in your life. You and your significant other is worth the effort. Make a point to take the time and look into your partner’s eyes as they are telling you about their day. It’s the little things that tell you how much you mean to them. Let them know you are paying attention and what they say matters! Live,laugh,and love.
