Spouse Dialog: House of Communication

Talk with your spouse about the house of communication.

Here are some suggested questions:

  • As a couple and as a family, on which level of the house of communication do we most often find ourselves?
  • What has been imprinted on us by others? What was communication like in our families of origin and on which level(s) did our communication mostly occur? What things do we want to reproduce in our own family and what do we want to do differently?
  • In which levels of communication do we need to improve?
  • What concrete steps can we take in order to deepen our communication with each other and to express our appreciation of one another better (e.g. set aside times for talking together as a couple, take part in a marriage workshop, read a book about expressing appreciation or improving communication as a family)?
