Publisher's Summary

If you wish you could choose the right attitude and the right words and avoid unnecessary discussions with your partner every time, then keep reading...

The increasing rate of divorce proves that keeping a marriage intact is hard. There are many reasons why couples who were once inseparable decided to part ways but whatever those reasons are, one thing is for sure - those reasons didn't come up just overnight. Many marital conflicts were ignored until they get so big that couples cannot handle them anymore until they explode and eventually decided to part ways. 

When two people are in a long-term relationship like marriage, communication is one of the most important factors affecting the relationship.

Communication gap is one thing that can happen to couples as the years pass by. The lack of communication or poor communication between couples can be very destructive to the marriage and can lead to multiple marital issues. Understanding the importance of communication in marriage can be a great motivation for couples to improve the communication in their relationship. 

Communication prevents misunderstandings, confusions, and wrong assumptions. When couples are not talking to each other regularly, they may end up predicting what their spouse is thinking, leading to wrong assumptions and misunderstandings. Couples who are married for many years often assume that their spouses just know what's in their minds because they've been together for many years, which is very wrong. Assuming that your partner can read your mind creates confusions. 

It is important to articulate your thoughts to minimize misunderstandings. If couples can only learn the art of effective communication, misunderstandings can be prevented.

What you will discover in this book:

  • What happened to your relationship?
  • Defining your relationships
  • Your beliefs influence your relationship
  • Women - Are you sacrificing too much for your relationship?
  • Why conflicts arise in your marriage
  • Sexual conflict in marriage
  • Build a better communication
  • Secrets of a happy marriage
  • The evil of divorce

Look at the other person so that they know you're attentive to him/her and that he/she matters to you. If you're asking for change in the behavior of the other person, and sometimes that's necessary, you might touch his/her arm as you speak, so that you communicate your care and commitment in spite of what could sound like a complaint.

The first step is always awareness.

Life changing audio book on Marriage

This audio book will change the way you communicate not only with your other half, but your kids, other family members, co-workers, employees, customers... How do you respond to someone who needs to vent? Someone who needs support or encouragement? Someone who just wants to share a special accomplishment, big or small?

A great self-help book will actually be memorable

I wish everyone would listen this audio book! As someone who does not usually find casual listening enjoyable, I found myself looking forward to free time spent listening I Hear You. This was primarily because of the benefit I was getting from it. After having listen the first phase, I noticed how little validation is used by society as a whole.

Very insightful info How to Improve Your Marriage

This audio book was an impulse read I found browsing the store, but I'm glad I gave it a shot! A lot of what's inside seems like common sense, but it's interesting to realize how uncommonly we follow the ideas presented. I think it will make a lot of difference in interacting with coworkers, friends, and family, and will be especially helpful in discussing reports with callers I have to speak with at work, where people ARE always looking for advice yet strangely not often ready to hear it right away.

Intro to Validation made Easy in Marriage

I’ve only listen a few self-help style books, but I’m trying to improve my communication style not only in my own relationship but in my new job as a supervisor, so I’ve been on the lookout for something that would fit into that category and this fit the bill.

Beyond being quite helpful on Communication

I don't know if I can add anything that hasn't already been said about the content of this audio book. But I will say that this book is exceptionally well-spoken.The organization, pacing, and even the length of the book are right-on.

Charming, straightforward and useful-Communication

This was a lovely quick listen, and I would highly recommend it. It only took me two days of light listening to finish as the book is refreshingly short. Having studied psychology and being more than a little bit obsessed with all things related to therapy, I have seen this skill practiced in the most effective therapists.

Great method to improve your life

I have spent a majority of my adult life in the hyper-masculine world of the military. I have been taught to suppress feeling and emotions to the point where I can literally turn them off like you would a light switch. I identify as emotionally retarded.

It was an easy listen but very useful information

For me, this audio book made sense from the start! I could relate in many ways to the stories brought to light and this simple knowledge may have helped in most if not all of the situations in my own life. It was an easy listen but very useful information. Good every day advice! I appreciate self help/self improvement books and this book fit that bill so to speak. Thank you!!!

Great audio about How to Improve Your Marriage!

I wish my ex would listen this. I think all men should listen this. Though it is not only for men but for everyone. Men tend to try to "Solve" issues when we only want someone to talk to. Great audio!

It's like secrets to conversation

This audio book is so true. People just want to be "heard" in a conversation. This basically sums up exactly how I feel. If everyone could listen this book, it's like secrets to conversation.

A foundation of great principles in Relations!

I've listen this book several times because of how easy it is to dive into a phase, capture a wonderful insight, and put it to practice. There are so many little things people ignore in how they go about managing their relationships.
