Erika Krull, MSEd, LMHP, has written a good article entitled, “Marriage Communication: 3 Common Mistakes and How To Fix Them.” 

In her article she lists these 3 common mistakes:

  1. Yelling at your spouse.
  2. Having a competitive attitude.
  3. Making marriage about me instead of we.

Her article is worth reading and the her message is clear: when you focus too much on yourself, and fail to recognize your spouse’s viewpoint, your marriage suffers. Changing the way you think and how your communicate can work wonders in improving your relationship!
