5 Ways to Communicate Better with Your Spouse


Many things are easier said than done, and repairing a marriage is definitely amongst the most challenging tasks one can have. Either you or your spouse must have the intention to repair your marriage, and take the lead in initiating communication. To communicate better with your spouse, please take note of the below pointers:


1. Use Moderate Words
Harsh or abrasive words won’t help in smoothing emotions, so keep your tone and phrasing as neutral as possible. Although you may feel angry and combative, take note that words can sometimes be more hurtful than physical actions.


2. Criticise Less
No one really likes to have their weak points picked on, so try to avoid overly criticising your spouse. This applies to face-to-face conversations with your spouse and also speaking about your spouse with other people. When you try to see your spouse’s strengths, you are more likely to find lingering feelings of goodwill within your marriage.kh


3. Avoid Causing Irritation
While people’s tempers can be fickle, as civilized adults, spouses should at the very least maintain respect for each other. Try not to act in a manner that would irritate your spouse and steer clear of pet peeves. Such actions may escalate into a bigger argument.


4. Recollect Your Past
Looking back at the reasons why you decided on this marriage may help you to rediscover your relationship with your spouse. This may then assist in strengthening your resolve to make the marriage work again.


5. Apologise When It Is Needed
We all make mistakes that may hurt our spouse from time to time. It’s important to talk it out, recognise our mistakes and move on by apologising. Although you may still think that you’re not at fault, the mere act of attempting to say sorry would at least reduce tensions between you and your spouse.
