1. Be A Ready Listener And Do Not Respond Until Your Spouse Has Finished Talking.
2. Check For Understanding.
If you do not fully understand what your spouse has said, repeat back to him/her what you think he/she said and ask them to clarify their statement.
3. Be Slow To Speak. Think First. Don’t Be Hasty In Your Answers. Speak In Such A Way That Your Spouse Can Understand And Accept What You Say.
