Communication is a fundamental aspect of all living in the society regarded for formal
and informal activities and relationships as well. The ability of peaceful living is much
dependent on the effectiveness of the communication that the parties involved underscore (Boyle
et, al., 2016). Relationships are essential and should be kept with the high level of integrity and
responsibility. The feeling of an individual can be frustrated or be nursed depending on the
communication methods and media used (Billed et, al., 2015). The romantic relationships, in
particular, is of an in-depth of attachment and feeling for one another. The ability to live a
peaceful life in a romantic relationship as well has been found to have so much attachment to the
communication. The ability for people to come together in a tie, for instance, calls for an
agreement that is facilitated by contact (Campbell, 2019).
As it is true that whatever was used to acquiring anything shall as well play an integral
part in the maintenance and keeping it goes, the communication is essential, therefore for the
continuity of the relationship. Communication, as defined, is the process of transferring
information from an individual or a group of people to another. The completeness in
conversation is the ability to receive the result and reply from the receiver of the information
(Kato, 2016). In relationships, this involves making one another to realize the feeling of the other
and to hold on to them. The need to contend with one another and to understand them is a critical
aspect played by communication (Boyle et, al., 2016).
The romantic relationship requires the involves parents making plans for their children,
which is an essential and caudal practice (Fincham et, al, 2018). The parties involved in romantic
relationships, therefore, need to make known their feeling towards each other and an issue to
come up with a solution and to agree. Communication, therefore, makes it possible for an
COMMUNICATION IN ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS 3
individual to explain to the others what they are experiencing and what their needs could be for
discussion. A healthy romantic relationship is built upon a productive and successful
communication (Campbell, 2019). This ensures that the oneness of the couples is maintained.
Expressions of love, for instance, maybe tricky to understand without the verbal
acknowledgment. This, therefore, confers the need to improve and initiate effective
communication in relationships (Fincham et, al, 2018).
The critical aspects of communication in romantic relationships are considered of
significance and of relevance to all who are in romance and yet to be. Communication done
effectively has the role of elimination of misunderstanding among the couple (Solomon et, al.,
2016). The most significant disease in a relationship is a misunderstanding that may come as a
result of ineffective communication (Kato, 2016). Couples and families have been torn apart
because of matters of disagreement. The fact of the matter is that without excellent
communication, there are limited chances of understanding. This should otherwise be avoided
(Billedo et, al., 2015). The bonding of the relationship is strengthened by communication, which
draws individuals close to one another in their relationship.
The charm of the interaction of the couple is based on the reciprocation and expression of
the feelings of one another (Campbell, 2019). The communication can take several forms and not
just one in stock. Cuddling without the need for sex is one effective way of building the love
between the couples since it brings the close. The ability to hold the attention of a partner in a
relationship depends on the ability to contain them in an involving interaction and
communication. Healthy communication in a relationship has its foundation built on the strength
of the couples to be promising and open and honest with each other (Boyle et, al., 2016). The
aspect of fear of rejection comes with a refrain to express the intentions of one another. There are
COMMUNICATION IN ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS 4
fear and concern about not upsetting the partner in a relationship. This will always result in
disagreements that would otherwise be avoided (Campbell, 2019).
Communication also encourages support in a romantic relationship. This is done by
everyone standing for one another during the good and the bad times (Solomon et, al., 2016).
The misfortunes of everyone in the family is a concern of every other party. The ending of gossip
in the family is as well done effectively communication undertaken in the family. Facts are made
deliberate and practical through communication in the family (Boyle et, al., 2016).
Communication also helps in providing insight into the situations that bare in place and those
that are in the future. The prediction and preparedness of a family take precaution against
individual calamities that are predicated by the partners (Fincham et, al, 2018).
With much insight on communication, some issues and problems are associated with it as
well in the family. The existence of communication in a relationship is otherwise not the solution
to all challenges that may exist in the relationship. Sometimes the conversation may be a poison
in the family (Kato, 2016). In the absence of wisdom and good morals, the freedom that is
applied in the communication may be abused. Some partners may mistake the privilege that is
accorded to them by the others to be a weakness and in that case, result in familiarity between
the partners. Being used to one another in a relationship is an evil that can eat on the peace of the
partners and destabilizes the bonding of the couples (Boyle et, al., 2016).
Too much talks without boundaries may as well cause a paralyzed since there are chances
of trespassing to one another. The discussion about promises that are not met is a factor that can,
in many ways, results in problems in the relationship. Communication is, therefore, supposed to
be taken with care and caution to ensure there is a healthy growth of intimacy between partners.
Sample misunderstanding can also come up with paralyzed communication (Campbell, 2019). It

is puzzling to have instances of family separations and undergoing treats of conflicts in absences
of well put communications and addressing issues in a way that is not conforming to the will of
the others. Each partner ought to act with the primary consideration of the feeling of one another
to address them in the way that is appropriate (Kato, 2016). The issue of communication has led
to the death for feelings and honor in some families. The adjustments to meet the expectation of
others may also be a challenge.
Some individuals are naturally born introverts (Billedo et, al., 2015). Such individuals
often find difficulty in sharing and talking. The bonding and uniformity of the partners are,
therefore, crucial in the relationship’s growth. The introverts and the extroverts may find it
difficult to rhyme. This makes communication one-sided. Hence, an individual feels like they are
not given priority in a relationship. The interface also has the challenge of sideling other people
in an individual’s life (Solomon et, al., 2016). In the cases where someone is only used to talking
to the people they are in love with, and Romans wit, relating to the other people may be a
challenge. This perception may get to the point of separation and disintegrations in tath long run.
Boundaries of communication should, therefore, be set (Boyle et, al., 2016). It is though a
problem for many people balancing the interaction with others outside their love life.
Communication though is essential for every romantic relationship. The need to keep
peace and to have a perfect bonding of the families calls for a reliable power of connection. The
limits should otherwise bet they set to ensure that a healthy relationship is maintained to other
people. Avoidance of situations that may lead to obsessive thoughts should be put in place. There
should be a balance stricken between the partners and the other people in the life cycle.
Interacting with one person most of the time has resulted in depression at times when such a
partner ceases to exist (Kato, 2016). In times of any mistake that is taken and need a response,
COMMUNICATION IN ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS 6
the misbehavior of a partner as a result of neglect may result in a dreadful impact on the
relationship. The relationships should practice a balanced interaction with issues. Being realistic
is essential to ensure there are no frustrated expectations of one another (Campbell, 2019). The
choice of the people joining in a romantic relationship should also be considered based on their
strengths in communication.
The vocally expressive should understand the others who are active in thought and action
rather than speech. In the absence of contact, the wrath of force and regrets that only increase the
lack of peace are evident (Boyle et, al., 2016). It is, therefore, a vital performance to maintain the
communication that involves all the aspects and media appropriate to make the partners
understand one another appropriately. Strategies can always be set in place to help others who
are flowing in the deficit of the same to come up (Campbell, 2019). Such include visiting the
professional to give pieces of advice rich in guiding the partners. The counselors do go job of
helping the couples to improve their communication habits as they continue to talk about talking
(Billedo et, al., 2015).
