Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You want to save your marriage. Can learning how to communicate with your wife do the trick? You know you've had problems in the past and really want to work through them but don't have any idea where to begin. Is communication really the answer or is it just a convenient scapegoat? How do you even improve communication? Is there a guide or rule book to follow so you can make things better between the two of you once and for all?

Communication is important in any marriage. It's more important than even you may realize. Men often don't place the same importance on talking through problems that women do so it may be a little difficult to understand why communication is so vital in marriage. In order to do that you have to understand that communication, good communication that is, isn't solely about the words you speak to one another. There are many dimensions or facets to communication that go much deeper than the words that are spoken in your marriage.

The better question to ask is how can learning to communicate better with your wife help save your marriage? The truth is that there are many ways that better communication can benefit your marriage now and in the future. The sooner you learn better skills in the art of communication the bigger the impact they can have on your marriage will be. One of the best ways that better communication can help your marriage though is that it allows you to both voice your needs and make sure they are being met. This is probably one of the most important things in marriages that most couples neglect to do either by not knowing how or not understanding the need. Better communication makes all this and so much more possible for couples. If you're hoping to save your marriage, this is the way to get it done.

How else can better communication save your marriage?

  • It helps you learn to argue more productively. When you're communicating what you want and need from each other, even arguments are more productive because they clear the air and get rid of the emotional clutter that would otherwise weigh down your marriage.
  • It gives you a chance to clear the air before things become a problem in your marriage. When you know how to communicate with each other you're better prepared to deal with the ups and downs that happen in all marriages.

You don't have to become Shakespearean level communicators in order to have a better marriage as a result. But learning the power of communication can even help you get your ex back if you waited just a little too late to learn this vital skill.
