Communication and Conflict Resolution
Included with the online Pre-Cana, Living Our Faith in Love
It is no wonder that all of us are wired differently. We all have different temperaments, different methods of communicating, and different methods of resolving conflict. Learning to become fluent in each other’s languages is a skill to continually sharpen, and is necessary for starting and growing a strong and healthy marriage.
Communication within marriage is not always associated with conflict — in fact, it encompasses several aspects of the relationship. A healthy sex life and intimacy requires optimal communication.
This is also essential for areas like finances, careers, roles in the relationship, expectations and boundaries with the extended family — it is safe to say that communication is among the most important and powerful aspects of marriage.
Communication requires a commitment to keep learning more effective ways to relate to one another. This segment helps to establish the baseline of what each party needs to ensure an extraordinary experience for a lifelong partnership.
