Being part of a couple is a great feeling. You get to have your best friend by your side all the time. He’s the person who you get to have kids with, who you get to spend your nights with, and he’s the first person you call when something happens. However, not all couples are always blissfully happy, because they are simply not good at communication. If you want to ensure that your relationship stays on track for the rest of forever, you need to learn the proper way to communicate.
What You Say Is Not as Important as How You Say It
The tone of your voice is what gets your point across. When you are angry with your spouse, make sure you keep your voice calm and your inflection even. You can create a mountain out of a molehill if you say what you have to say in the wrong tone of voice.
You Are Partners – In Everything
You aren’t in this marriage only for the better. What happens to one of you happens to both of you because you are in this thing together. When good things happen it is easy to be excited because it’s happening to both of you. When something bad happens, you need to remember that this is something you both have to deal with, too. You have less than 10 seconds to react to bad news from your partner in a way that will show him exactly how you feel about your marriage.
Admitting When You Are Not As Good at Something
My husband is an amazing cook and I don’t know how to boil water. It’s a fact of life. However, we learned very quickly that when I admitted my kitchen issues that life would be much easier. My husband doesn’t expect dinner on the table when he gets home unless I went somewhere and picked something up. He’s better, so he knows cooking is his deal.
