“Connecting” with your wife

“However, each one of you must also love his wife as he loves himself.”
Ephesians 5:33

 It happens without warning; static invades the conversation.  Missing every other word, you strain to hear and struggle to be understood.  Before long, you’re raising your voice, repeating key phrases – but it’s no use.  You’ve dropped the call, and you might as well be talking to yourself.

The limits of cell phone technology are all too familiar; but that frustration pales in comparison to miscommunication in a marriage.  Whether it happens in the middle of a crucial conversation or at the same spot every day, husbands can have a difficult time “connecting” on the right levels.  Women need connection on three levels, Emotional, Ideas, and Solutions.  Too often husbands jump to the solution level before the other two and the connection can get full of static.  In the video clip below, Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg (America’s Family Coaches) help couples strengthen their signals and take their communication to the next level.

  1. The Rosberg’s are right on. Men are wired to solve problems and will often move to a solution before they have heard the total story. Slow down, listen, get the whole picture and then offer some help(if it’s wanted).
