Communication in Relationship or Marriage

What do you think is the main reason for poor communication in relationships and marriages? We grow up and begin dating, usually after puberty. By college age and afterwards, our relationships usually become more serious in terms of love. Very soon we begin having communication problems. Unless we discover what causes those problems they just get worse until after a few years we break apart or divorce. Why?

Whenever I get a couple for counseling who are having relationship communication problems, I can clearly see what is wrong–or more precisely, what went wrong early on. If I can see it so clearly, why can’t the couple see it while it is happening? Perhaps you are reading this because you are having communication issues. What happened early in your relationship that is now causing your communication problems? Come see me and let’s take a look backwards. Once you see the pattern, you will be able to prevent issues in the future.
