First comes love, then comes miscommunication. Do you ever feel that you and your spouse arenít compatible? Do
you ever complain that your spouse doesnít understand you? Youíre not alone. Many couples report miscommunication
as their biggest problem. Maybe you can remember a time when your spouse and you were on the same page - you
communicated your love effectively. Was that a long time ago? Marriage expert and award-winning author H. Norman
Wright shows you how to regain your closeness. In How to Speak your Spouseís Language, you can learn to
turn communication into joyful interaction.
Do you know the crucial four minutes for communication? A positive or negative relationship is built in two
specific time frames: the four minutes at the start of your day and the four minutes when you reunite at the end
of the day. Wright says you can transform your relationship with positive, daily actions in those eight minutes.
You might fill the morning with grumpy silence, commandeering breakfast, or effectively scheduling the day. Are
you a silent partner, a commander, or an efficiency expert?
Now, look at what happens at the end of your day. Are those four minutes filled with news, the kidsí
misbehavior, or minimal talking? Wright suggests respecting one anotherís space, even taking some time to
transition from work to home. After the transition, you can approach each other with love and closeness.

learn good listening habits, to build common ground and to understand feelings - among other key lessons. These
lessons can improve any relationship in which you want better communication. Readers will be amazed at the ease
of the book, its clear examples, quick lessons, and chapter-end questions or "energy builders". Wright introduces
