Communication seems to be consistent across almost all the couples that come and see me. It is on different levels, and it usually ties into the other issues on this list. They don’t know how to listen, they don’t know how to express their needs in a productive way. They are mind reading and assuming what the other person is thinking, feeling, and how they will respond, so they get angry at them, without ever actually talking to them about an issue. They have decided how they will react, Another major issue is finances.
