Marriage Communication Basics

Binge-watching Netflix’s Love is Blind is like eating ice cream so fast you get a brain freeze. There were sweet moments and other moments that made me stop and have an honest conversation with my husband.

Once the couples are no longer in their bubble and have to work through day-to-day challenges, they struggle to maintain the spark they developed in the pods.

Effective communication is the key in any successful relationship, especially in marriage. It’s the key ingredient to maintaining a happy and healthy bond. Without it leads to frequent disagreements, distrust, and ultimately a breakdown in the relationship.
