Within this latest post, Ed and Cathy announce how vital communication is within any marriage. Aside from strengthening the overall relationship, good communication allows couples to work through the bad times more easily.
The couple mention a great article they found, titled “How to Improve Communication in a Marriage.” They decide to share some of the article’s tips with their readers.
Their first tip is to always use “I” statements.
“Using the word 'I' instead of the word 'you' to describe your feelings shows that you accept responsibility for the way you feel rather than placing blame on your partner,” they explain.
Ed and Cathy’s next tip is to pay attention to non-verbal communication. The article they read suggests that body language and touch is far more important that the words someone says.
The next tip they share is to speak in a calm, level voice and avoid name calling.
“This is extremely important to remember when you’re having a disagreement or when you feel like your spouse has let you down or hurt you in some way. However, it can be hard to follow through in the heat of the moment,” they admit.
Next they suggest that people should really listen to what their spouse has to say. While it is easy to get distracted, they believe that taking the time to stop and focus will add huge strength to any relationship.
Finally, Ed and Cathy urge their readers to focus on the present.
“Bringing up old issues just exacerbates hurt feelings and distracts from the subject at hand. When we drag “all things old” into every disagreement, nothing gets resolved,” they conclude.
