You don't joke with communication in your relationship, you must talk and your spouse must listen to you.
Hubby knows when I want to talk, I want to talk, so he drops everything he is doing and gives me 100 percent attention. When hubby says "Seun (I so love it when my darling calls me Seun, it makes my head swell), we need to talk", I know it's serious business. Phone gets shut down, children are kept out of the way, environment is put in silent mode, face turned to hubby with 100 percent attention. He is the most important person in my life apart from God and therefore deserves my respect and attention. Listening to your spouse is a form of respect!
Anger, frustration, depression, fridgity and sometimes impotence in marriage is as a result of bottled up, unexpressed emotion! If you are unhappy in your relationship, you need to talk about it! Learn to talk to your spouse.
In courtship, talk. If you ain't talking in courtship, you are looking for serious trouble in marriage. Instead of keeping malice, getting depressed, frustrated, double dating, cheating or having an affair, open up to your partner, tell them what is bothering you and together resolve your differences!
If you don't know how to settle your differences in courtship, you are heading towards divorce in marriage!
Communication is the bedrock of any relationship that will last. Listening and talking sensibly to your spouse is a skill you must master if you want to have a blissful marriage.
You can't open your heart to someone with whom you can't be yourself. Marry your friend. Marry your best friend! Marry your soul mate! Marry your bone and flesh made for you from heaven!
