Without satisfactory interpersonal communication, a relationship between two people will die. Improve or maintain a healthy dialogue with your partner with these five steps. One, complain but don’t criticize. Two, seek first, to understand, then to find a solution. Three, do not get defensive every time you argue. Four, do not use sarcasm. Five, compromise and negotiate to a win-win solution. Speak openly and always be honest. Act with love and a deep respect toward each other. These traits are the foundation of your relationship. Then, as true partners, decide upon a path of action that benefits both of you.
