Effective Communication in Relationships

‘Did You Know’ that effective communication is a major key to relationship harmony and satisfaction?

Effective Communication in Relationships

According to Author H. Norman Wright (2000) in Communication: Key to Your Marriage, three things are commonly taking place in marriages:  “there is a decline in understanding between marriage partners; there is a loss of the determination to remain married; and there is a development of unrealistic marriage expectations.”

Often these declines in relating to one another take place as partners give work, children, and other life events a greater priority than each other.  As loosing touch with a partner increases, it is likely that feelings of empathy, intimacy, and desire for one’s partner decreases.  Disappointments and unmet expectations in relationships lead to a lack of fulfillment in the relationship.

The downward spiraling effects of discontentment may lead partners to seek fulfillment in adulterous emotional attachments, financial infidelity, or other unwanted behaviors.
