Focusing on Marriage....

The book: How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It
Author:Patricia Love

The reader: Nicole

I must have looked at the description of every marriage self help book out there, but I have finally decided on this one. I want this little experiment to focus partly on my marriage because it seems like my husband and I just don’t communicate well. I am a talker and he, well….he is just not. I am trying not to have enormously high hopes for this book, but I do hope it will help. Maybe I will learn not to talk so much and just do…..or maybe I will learn some other great form of communication? I have no idea, but I do know this: I would like to avoid uttering any of the following phrases to my other half.

• Can we talk?
• We need to talk.
• Why didn’t we talk about that first?
• You should have told me.

The list goes on and on. I am sure you get my point. There is bound to be a long road ahead for me in this process, but I am willing to make the effort. I’ll keep you posted….
