Better Communication Can Help
By Nancy Wasson, Ph.D.
Are you considering marital
counseling to try to get back your wife or
husband before your marriage crashes?
If so, you’re not alone. In many troubled
marriages, the downward
slide to marital separation and divorce can be traced to communication
problems in the relationship.
Can you relate to this?
When communication issues are a challenge for couples, it's
not unusual for the mates to stay in perpetual frustration in an unhappy
marriage. It’s common for such unhappy spouses to feel unappreciated
and misunderstood by their partner.
How to Stop Marital
Separation in This Situation
When unexpressed feelings pile up and begin to poison the relationship,
it may be time to consider going to a marriage
counselor. You may be wondering
how a marriage guidance expert can improve your relationship.
A little-known fact is that a good marital therapist can help you understand
that when you repress your anger, it will usually emerge later, often
after something trivial has upset you or your mate.
Is it challenging for you and your spouse to have a normal conversation
without one of you leaving the room before a conflict is settled? The
emotionally-charged buttons that your mate presses in you may make you
want to get away in order to avoid your uncomfortable emotions and reactions.
If you want to communicate better with your spouse, you’ll find
that you must be fully attentive and present in the moment to have
the best chance of success. It means that you have to commit to truly
listen. And you have to hear not just
with your ears but you must listen also with your heart.
Your goal is to get rid of any communication obstacles or blocks that
and your spouse from growing and maturing in intimacy and understanding.

unrelated to what your partner is saying;
