Communication is the key to a healthy marriage......

Communication is the key to a healthy marriage. If you don’t have a healthy way of expressing your thoughts and emotions to each other, of speaking & being heard, then everything else will ultimately crumble. In order to have a successful marriage, you have to make yourself an expert in communication.

To have a successful marriage, both partners need to keep the lines of communication open with one another. They should learn how two communicate effectively. 
Effective communication means verbalizing needs and listening carefully…… are you doing that with your partner?

Lastly, be an open book for your spouse to read. If he/she wrongs you in any way, let them know immediately. Do not keep grudges. It is very unhealthy for your marriage to keep your feelings to yourself. Be fair to both of you; tell your spouse if they intentionally or inadvertently hurt you. Most times you may think your partner intentionally did something just to get back at you for what you have done in the past, however, it may have just happened accidentally even without them knowing. Using this against them in the future may be bad for the happiness in your marriage.
If your spouse hurts you, let them know. If they disappoint you, tell them. If they failed to keep their promises to you and you feel they betrayed you, talk it through with them. Marriage is meant to be enjoyed so don’t let little and meaningless grudges take that away from you.

Wish you all the best in your marriage.
