Find out what he’s really saying

As humans, we’re generally bad at expressing ourselves. This becomes especially true when emotions are high. You and your partner may have the same argument over and over again, and in it, you aren’t even really talking about the root issue. Something on the surface triggers deeper problems, but you don’t know how to identify or express those. It can be very hard to communicate that without seeming to place blame. “The benefits of couples therapy is it allows the couples to improve communication skills, discover the root cause of major problems, and create better understanding,” Matthews says. A therapist can hear what you’re actually trying to say, and help you express that, too.
