  3. Most important phrase a man can learn to ask his wife is “what are you needing from me now?” or expanded “What are you needing from me now? Would you like help with this or do you just want to share the situation with me?” Men default to solving first. We are fixers.

    Two of the most important communication fundamentals one must learn to really communicate are “Everyone makes sense all the time.” They do, to themselves. To not realize this is to assume a position of judgement, which the other party instantly feels. The second is ” in communication there is no “truth”, there is my truth and your truth. Both are of equal value.”

    If Catholic, separation can exist with approval of the local Bishop (if danger is present approval can happen after separation). In all separations, reconciliation is expected by the Church. It never OK to divorce and refuse reconciliation, even in cases of abuse if the danger is no longer present. Makes communication even more critical. God can solve any problem. It is never OK to determine we know more than God about our situation or God can’t fix this.
