Knowledge is power, and it is the mother of understanding. Misunderstanding happens frequently in marital relationships that lack knowledge, and knowledge comes from the information made available by both lovers to one another.
Another strong hindrance to the flow of information or communication in a marital relationship is addiction. Addiction is the act of engaging in a habit excessively in a consistent manner without control. Addiction is always a stealer of time; it specializes in stealing away the precious moments that intimate partners should spend in each other’s hands and in looking into each other’s eyes as they share pertinent information from heart to heart.
Any form of addiction is bad and has a devastating effect on the family unit because of its potency to predispose the affected party to mental health challenges.
If your spouse is struggling with one form of addiction or another, that might explain why he or she is not talking to you as much as it should.
Is your marital partner addicted to a habit? You must be aware of that habit and its impact on your relationship.
