Couples often struggle to communicate well when faced with uncomfortable issues. When this happens, one partner often pursues the other in an attempt to get them to engage in a meaningful conversation while the other retreats in an effort to avoid conflict. One sign of current or impending problems in a relationship is when one person wants to open up and share while their partner prefers to avoid and tunes out. The pursuer is left feeling like their spouse doesn’t care, while the other feels confronted. There’s always room for both parties to manage the situation better and research clearly shows that the communication skills best used in these uncomfortable situations can be learned. Attend marriage preparation to learn how to communicate effectively!
