How does good marriage communication work?
Good communication means that the message that's being delivered has the impact the speaker intended to have. Both the speaker and the listener have responsibility for that.
The speaker tries to clarify his intent, and states what he is thinking, feeling or asking for. It's best if he does not assume the listener knows what goes on in his inner world. The listener is not a mind reader.
The listener tries to make sure she understands the message without having to guess what the speaker actually means. If needed she may ask for clarifications. Both partners collaborate in trying to make sure that the intent of the message is the same as its impact.
As we all know, many times it's not that simple, and Intent does not equal Impact. That happens because the message goes through the speaker's filter and the listener's filter.
Communicating with your spouse should be fulfilling, not frustrating.
