Many of you might wonder “what is the even the big deal about communicating with your husband after marriage?”
Why is it difficult and why do I even need to learn new techniques? Well, the ugly truth is that if your communication in a marriage is not up to the mark, things may take an ugly turn.
Hence, there arises the need to work on your communication in marriage. Listed here are some important lessons on effective communication in a marriage.
1. Listen first, and then talk!
Don’t we all die to express our opinions and convince others that what we have to say is right? Well, that is not the right attitude, we tell you! You must listen to what your partner has to say.
You cannot interrupt and cut short your partner, every time he/she wishes to express his/her views. Communication in a marriage is about listening too!
2. Put forth sensible arguments
You cannot argue just for the sake of arguing. Some people enjoy fighting with their partner. This may sometimes lead to unhealthy arguments and spoil the relationship. So before arguing or putting across your views, think twice. Communication in a marriage has to be sensible and sensitive.
3. Focus on your body language
It is important to express your thoughts and views in a cordial manner, and it’s not just your voice that is important in this case. Facial expressions, eye contact and tone also play a major role in communicating well. Even an order can come out as a persuasive request when conveyed in the right manner. Similarly, even a request can come out as an order if not done rightly.
4. Spare some time for ‘talk time’
In your busy lives, you and your partner may not even get time to sit and have a feel good conversation. You are either buying groceries or getting ready for office or paying your bills. It is important for you and your partner to spare some time as ‘talk time’ and engage in conversations about anything and everything! The topic doesn’t matter, what matters is that you both must enjoy talking to each other.
5. Don’t just complain
Most people only seem to put across their frustrations, anger and disappointments to their partners. You cannot simply keep on complaining about everything your partner does and leave out the good things. You must also appreciate him and express how much you love him every now and then. When your partner makes you feel good through a simple deed, make sure you voice it out too. That is what makes communication in a marriage a roaring success! Remember to stay happy always. Have a blissful one ladies… Xoxo
