Communication In Marriage - or Lack There Of

Communication is a Big Deal

“What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” A famous line from the 1967 movie, “Cool Hand Luke.”

In marriage, good communication needs to be a high priority. Open, honest, and clear communication is a heavy-duty building block for trust.

The Window

It was a simple clear glass hospital window that separated me from the outside world. As I peered through the sealed opening I allowed myself to fantasize about what it would be like to live a life without a disease being in my constant thoughts.

It’s Time to Open up About That Sexual Struggle, Ma’am

When I was around 11 years old I came across a hidden stash of pornography hidden under a relative’s mattress. Almost immediately I began seeking out what I accidentally stumbled upon that day. This soon led to sexually addictive behavior including pornography and compulsive masturbation. Eventually the pornography and masturbation led to numerous multiple anonymous sexual encounters.
