When asked “What is Marriage?” a person had a rather funny reply. He said, “Married life is full of excitement and frustration: In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.” But when given a deeper thought about the above reply, it seems to be reality! These days cases of divorce are no longer uncommon. Even newly married couples feel the heat in the first few months of marital life. Couples these days are pretty doubtful about their partners temper, character, behavior, and many more things. All these are consequences of poor communication and misunderstanding. Many a couple, do not speak out what their problems are and tend to nurse a grudge instead. This in time results in all the pent up anger finally erupting like a gigantic volcano. It is therefore important for you to sort out all differences by being open with what you think and how you feel about your partner. Here are a few questions which you can ask your partner to arrive at a better understanding.
