The myth that men and women who love each other “automatically” know what the other person is thinking and feeling is just that – a myth. Sharing real feelings and emotions and talking about the serious issues in a relationship is often difficult. Yet it is a hurdle couples must conquer if they expect their union to last.
Miscommunication – or lack of communication – inevitably erodes the closeness and intimacy between couples. Emotional “walls” are then built up, and the relationship often ends up in divorce court.
The good news is that with awareness and effort couples can establish healthy communication patterns that can be carried over into their marriage. In this session, marriage counselor Dr. Kim Kimberling reviews negative and positive ways to communicate with your spouse, ways that allow you to understand, embrace and work through your differences.
