I don’t think I need to tell you that communication is key if it is a good marriage or relationship you wish for. We hear that a lot so it sort it goes without saying. What we don’t hear is what communication is and how to communicate in a marriage.

You see, communication is more than the ability to open your mouth and spew forth words. It takes skill to communicate properly and if you aren’t communicating prope

rly you might as well be talking to a wall.

Below are a few things I’ve learned over the years about communication. I hope you learn something yourself!

Unless the other person is ready to listen, communication is useless.

For communication to work the other person has to be listening and taking to heart what you have to say. There is a time and place for everything, which includes talking through a problem in your marriage. Don’t force a conversation on a spouse who is not yet ready to listen.

If you find your spouse is never ready to listen, I suggest you read my article on conflict avoidance.
When communicating get specific.

Communication is not about complaining or whining. If your spouse is doing something that you don’t like, don’t gripe about it. Express exactly what the issue is and exactly what steps your spouse needs to take so that you will feel better about the situation.

I had a friend who felt her husband didn’t love her because he was a lousy gift giver. She never the gift she really wanted. You know why? Because she had never communicated to her husband what she really wanted. God is so good!!!

Bless you all.
