Communication or the lack of it can either make or break a marriage. It takes understanding of one's partner's view for a relationship to work out well.

A decent marriage flourishes with an open exchange of feeling, goals, and convictions. In fact, communication is a standout amongst the most imperative parts of a delightful marriage. Most of them experience harsh times in their marriage, and complain that they don’t communicate with each other anymore. In all likelihood, they intend to say that they don’t convey viably any longer. The fact of the matter is that individuals are conveying constantly. Indeed, even two individuals giving one another the silent treatment are corresponding with one another. Many times in troubled marriages, even a simple situation might have a different result.
Let’s take an example to illustrate how poor communication can change the whole picture.
Ravi and Priya are married for one year. Ravi is more rational and less emotional regarding decisions and discussions.
Ravi and Priya are married for one year. Ravi is more rational and less emotional regarding decisions and discussions, while Priya is more emotional and less logical. A simple conversation between them is as follows:
Ravi: “Why haven’t you paid the bills?”
Priya: “Look, who’s talking? As if you haven’t forgotten to pick up the groceries for two days from the supermarket.”
As you can see Priya has moved away from Ravi’s simple complaint about not paying the bills to a relatively broader issue of whose mistake poses higher dangers to the family (in a defensive mode).
Ravi: “I am not saying anything about groceries, Priya. I am just asking you for the reason for not paying the bills.”
Now this discussion has gone to a completely different level. Ravi and Priya would hurt each other emotionally and start screaming and you can imagine the rest.
From the above conversation, it is clear that they both have different personalities. Here comes the existence of rational versus emotional thinking, and how important is for every couple to learn to balance their ways of thinking through effective communication in marriage.
As stated by a famous playwright, “Communication – the human connection is the key to personal and career success”.
During our first year of marriage, a lesson I learned was that men and women communicate differently.
During our first year of marriage, a lesson I learned was that men and women communicate differently. Silly fights in any relationship don’t occur because one person is ‘correct’ and the other is ‘wrong’. They usually occur because of things like minor disturbances partners cause each other, silly frustrations they take out on one another and so forth.
I have listed some pin pointers that may help you to improve communication in your marriage:
Your relationship with your spouse may vary from this example, yet this much is true: Your partner is the single most important person you have in your life. Believe it or not, communication is a great tool that God has given us to tie our hearts and our brains together.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
