Let’s talk about marriage. Specifically how happy couples communicate differently. We want to give you some quick ways to start communicating in healthy and affective ways by talking about the differences between happy couples and unhappy couples.
Difference #1- Happy Couples Talk to Each Other More.
Happy couples talk more to each other than unhappy couples. Communication is a priority for happy couples.
Difference #2- Happy Couples Talk About Their Feelings Easier and Respect the Feelings of their Partner.
There are more “I” statements than “You” statements and mutual respect of each other’s feelings.
Difference #3- Happy Couples Have a Wider Range of Topic they Talk About
Happy couples will talk about more than the children, the bills, or work. They will share goals, dreams, and plans for the future. They often share hobbies and other common interests so they have more things to talk about than unhappy couples.
