One of the key ingredients to a successful, strong relationship is constant, consistent, and strong communication. Although this skill comes easier for some (more often women than not), both partners need to work on communication in a relationship.

A relationship where communication is weak or non-existent is a relationship where at least one party is likely not getting their needs met.

Communication isn’t just, “Hey, how was your day, dear?” It’s talking about simmering resentments and the big life issues in a reasonable and respectful manner. It’s finding ways to open up your heart — and your mind — to really listen to what the other person is trying to say.

In this video, Psych Central’s Ask the Therapists Daniel J. Tomasulo, Ph.D. & Marie Hartwell-Walker, Ed.D. discuss the issue of how to improve communication in your romantic relationship. Find out more by watching the segment below:
