Marriage Communication Survey


Increased Intimacy or Emotional Isolation…which will you choose? Developing good communication skills is a lifetime journey. The reward for developing and fine-tuning these skills is increased intimacy. The cost of neglecting these essential skills is emotional isolation. The Marriage Communication Assessment helps spouses look at their communication skills as a couple and allows each one to evaluate their own view and their spouse’s view of each other as communicators. A real eye-opener and starting point to better understanding ourselves…and our spouses.
