say what With all of the communicating we do on a daily basis, it seems as if husbands and wives should be able to send and receive thoughts and ideas successfully. However, according to Dr. Terri Orbuch—a psychologist and research professor at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research—41% of divorced couples say they would communicate differently if they could change something about their relationships. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Orbuch gave a few suggestions for better communication:

  • Learn to argue in a way that produces a solution.
  • Practice active listening.
  • Spend at least 10 minutes a day talking about something other than work, kids, the household, or relationships.

These are all valid points derived from feedback given by divorced couples. And, it should not be discounted simply because the individuals are no longer together. I think the saying goes hindsight is always better than foresight.
