Premarital and Marital Guidance 

Module 4: TTYL Comunication

Welcome To Module 1: Five Types of Love 

There are three major killers in a marriage: Communication, Sex, and Finances. Because most issues in a marriage regarding sex and finances can be resolved by effective communication, communication becomes the tipping point of any relationship and is a mission critical skill set. Effective communication first starts with intentional and effective listening. Communication in relationships can be difficult. Problems are usually never resolved in a relationship, because while one person is expressing how they feel about something, the other person is thinking of what their comeback will be, instead of truly listening and empathizing with the other.
