COUPLES –

So we learned how important communication is in marriage. Not just anyhow communication but husbands and wives should dedicate time and attention to proper and effective ways to communicate with each other.

It can’t be over-emphasized, that Intimacy in marriage can only be brought as we grow from one level of Communication to the other levels.

There are five levels of Communication. I started with the first level yesterday, which is Hallway talker. Today, I am continuing:

2. Reporter’s Talk

This level is a step further than the first. Here, the conversation moves from general talks to talking or giving facts or information about events. It is a reported kind of talk.

Here more information is given, but still, this kind of conversation does not promote intimacy. In level two communication, we do not express our opinions, thoughts, or how we feel about the subject matter.

If you are at this level two communication, your aim should be to move up and climb the steps of effective communication so that intimacy could be engendered.

Remember, level two communication is summarized; Just give me the facts.

3.  Intellectual Talk

In this conversation level, your spouse is given the freedom to think differently. This is an amazing gift to give each other in marriage.

It is recognizing the fact that each one of you is a unique individual with a different perspective, viewpoint, and way of reasoning.

Marriage is trying to bring our way of thinking into alignment without suffocating the uniqueness of each other’s thinking. Two becoming one is choosing the best of our different thinking patterns and or merging our different opinions till we arrive at the best alternative.

When we recognize our weaknesses and strength and know that each one of us has a role and part to play and that neither of us is superior to another. We will honor each other and give each other the opportunity to air their opinions.
