Experts say there are five levels of communication: Frivolous Level. In this kind of communication, we go a step deeper. Freedom level communication is the secret of lasting love. THE DIFFICULTY WITH DIFFERENCES Intimate communication won't happen without some adjustments - especially on the part of men. One woman told me that the only time her husband speaks is when he wants food or sex. The wife, who craves communication, pushes her husband into a corner just to get him talking. Some of these stem from the fact that we are raised differently. Part of the macho self reliance myth is silence, which supposedly communicates complete self-control.
To keep that from happening in your marriage, let’s look at some of the things that strong families have learned about good communication.
While much communication in a strong marriage or family is spontaneous — “We talk while we do chores together” or “We talk anytime we’re together” — some strong families plan a certain time each day for the entire family to be together to talk.
Oteka and Jerry, for example, use dinner as a time for each member of the family to share the most enjoyable experiences of the day.
This happens because at a point the couple stopped communicating that is to say they stop talking to each other about what they feel, what they think and what they hope for each other.
Everyday, marriages are hitting the rocks, families are crumbling and the children are often left in a state of dilemma.
