Marriage Communication

Marriage Communication

Are you a motor mouth? Can you talk the same speed while inhaling as you do exhaling? I’ve met a few people that it sure seemed like they could. I’m sure none of my readers are like that though, but that is not communication.

There are all kinds of ways to communicate however when it comes to talking we have to take turns. It’s called common courtesy and really works great for a marriage relationship. It shows your mate respect and lets them know that they are important enough for you to take your time to listen to them.

On the other hand if you keep interrupting them they feel like you don’t care about their thoughts or feelings. You are basically ignoring them so you probably don’t care about them either. And if you would just step back and think about it for a second. Whatever you had to say that interrupted them, was it that important that it just couldn’t wait until they finished their sentence?

I realize I’m preaching to the choir and you wouldn’t do such a thing. When it comes to communication in a marriage little things like that have a way of adding up if we are not careful.

It’s not that we intentionally hold grudges our subconscious picks this stuff up and it’s more like once we have been burned by something we tend to approach it with caution. There by losing a little security making us feel more vulnerable.

If you interrupt your mate then Bob Newhart has the right advice for you. “Just stop it.”<– Click Link for fun! It opens in a new window and I’ll wait on you.

If your mate interrupts you then you have three choices. You can just forgive and forget and not take offense, you can let it work on your subconscious and drive a wedge in your marriage or you can tell them how you feel and keep the relationship open and honest.

Keeping the lines of communication open in your marriage is really up to you because, people will only respect you as much as you respect yourself.
