Communication #1 Issue in Couples Conflictby Debra Brandt on 02/12/16
If there is conflict in your relationship, poor communication is the primary issue. Most of the time in investigating the couples communication pattern, the partners will complain that they are not listened to or heard. A lot of times I will hear from one or both of the partners that they don't even try to communicate anymore. It is like why bother, "I'm not going to be heard and all I do is get angry and frustrated so I have learned to pick my battles or shut up." I hear this more times than not.
