The third goal of couple communication: the third fundamental of relationship communication
The third goal of couple communication is double. First, it requires you to check if your partner has completely understood your viewpoint. Second, it potentially asks you to clarify your message in case of misunderstanding.
For a moment, let us leave aside any kind of relationship communication skills. Allow yourself to just think about one of your couple’s conversations in which you were sure to communicate clearly with your partner. But despite this, your partner was not able to fully understand you or even worse the understanding of your significant other was completely wrong.
When misunderstanding occurs, especially during emotional peaks, some people tend to get angry instead of further clarifying their perspective.
In these cases, it is preferable to remain calm and explain your ideas point-by-point while constantly asking questions for the understanding of your partner comprehension.

Recall at least two examples of good and bad communication in your relationship life. Try to identify the elements to keep and to remove from your relationship communication. Think about a present problem in your relationship and use what you have just learned to express and enhance the way you communicate with your partner.
