Can you imagine a couple that doesn’t communicate? Yes, the latter is gradually moving towards divorce. Indeed, reflecting on how you met your partner. From that first meeting to today, you have always communicated. In a relationship, talking unites as well as divides, builds, and destroys. Communication in the couple is therefore an essential element in its development.
So how to maintain communication in the couple in order to avoid misunderstandings?
This may be key, but unfortunately, not all couples communicate perfectly, far from it. Communication is something that is learned and maintained. Both partners must engage in their relationship to truly know it and then master it. Everyone has their own way of communicating.
Listening to the other is also communicating in the couple!
Communicating well in a couple is first of all about listening to each other. This has many beneficial effects such as reducing conflicts. Precisely, conflicts, all couples know. The difference between couples who communicate and those who don’t is in how they react after an argument. Do you try to discuss it calmly to solve it? Talking is the best way to understand the other.
This is particularly true in couples “in crisis”. The latter can only get by with communication. However, sometimes it is necessary to take a little distance. Above all, you must have constructive communication. If every discussion ends in cries and tears, then communication can no longer do anything for you. You must then distance yourself to take stock of your relationship. You can then discuss it calmly and try to find a solution together.
How to dialogue with the couple effectively!
Talking about your couple is of paramount importance to moving forward together. You must share a similar vision of your future to maintain the relationship dynamic. If you don’t see the future the same way, your relationship is at an impasse. It is by communicating that you will be able to negotiate these complex situations.
It’s not all about saying to yourself: “I have to talk to my partner regularly”. We must adopt healthy and constructive communication. If you see every discussion as a struggle to impose your ideas, that’s really not a good thing because you’re not listening to the other person. You talk around each other without really taking your partner’s opinion into account. Thus, you can no longer talk about simple things without creating conflict. So it’s not about communication anymore.
Respect the other
To communicate well is to express oneself, to exchange but above all to respect the other. In a couple, both partners must be able to express their expectations clearly. In addition, you must try to speak correctly: not too quickly, not too slowly, not too loudly, not in an undertone, articulating… Finally, you must do everything to put yourself in the other person’s shoes. This will make it easier to understand the differences that exist between you and to respect them.
In a couple, nothing is ever acquired. This is why you must constantly be focused on your goal of communicating to better live your relationship. We hope this article will help you in your life!
