Communication in relationships is the key to a successful one. Without communication, a relationship stagnates and falls apart. If you cannot communicate your needs to your partner, how are they expected to understand you better? This is one of the most vital aspects of a relationship to keep it steady, happy and strong.

Do you fight in your relationship? This is one question every marriage counselor will ask you. If the answer is yes, it actually means there is hope yet. This is simply because the communication hasn’t broken down. What breaks it apart is the inability of either partner to communicate and take things for granted. Unless you don’t spend time with your partner revealing your mind, your needs, your likes and dislikes, your partner won’t understand you. Your partner then attempts to analyze or assume your character and ends up doing all the wrong things which you don’t like. Similarly, if both partners confide in each other, speak to one another and bare their heart out before each other, there won’t be room for guesswork.

Without Communication in relationships, it would never last.

Communication in relationships is also based on trust, love and understanding. Conveying the right messages to each other, displaying affection, and words of encouragement strengthen a relationship. But!! If both partners are habituated in speaking to one another, engrossed always in their own personal pursuits, that relationship risks falling apart.

You need to communicate to make your partner aware of your feelings.

No relationship is a paradise. There will be times of conflict, anger and disagreement. But keeping negative feelings of resentment pent up within both of you fuels the rage. It increases the ill feeling and feeds upon the negativity directed towards each other. If there is an argument or disagreement, by all means let it out, fight if you must. A good fight works wonders to reestablish the communication in relationships. But! Fighting does not mean with hatred and physical injury. It needs to be an outlet or medium to express pent up emotions, to tell your partner what you feel. When you can express your feelings to your partner, they will realize where they are going wrong and vice versa.

Communication enables negativity to be worked upon and positivity nurtured

Perhaps the biggest advantage of communicating in a relationship is the ability to express and leave nothing in your heart both negative and positive. The negativity can be worked upon and sorted out while the positivity can be absorbed nurtured and strengthened. The result is a stringer love bond between each other. When there is string communication in a relationship, it means that relationship has the potential to grow into a fruitful one.
