What Does Good Communication Look Like?

I’m convinced that communication is one of the most important aspects to any marriage. It truly is the lifeblood of the relationship. Wayne Mack has said, “Where you find marital failure, you will find a breakdown in real communication. Wherever you find marital success, you will find a good communication system.”

Timothy Witmer lists five critical factors to good communication within marriage.

1) You must understand the relationship between truth and trust.

2) You must keep in mind that people come to marriage with different communication styles.

3) You must commit yourself to building up your wife with your words.

4) You must remember that quality communication means being a good listener.

5) You must speak to the heart, which refers to the quality of your communication.
