Learn how it works
Listening

You and your partner will answer questions about how you think you listen to each other. Then each of you will become a “mirror” to the other by answering questions about how you think your partner listens to you. This prepares you for a carefully constructed discussion of your findings. Partners agree to encourage each other in the practice of their new skill. Next you will choose a new listening skill and establish an action plan. Finally, you will exchange your “Support Forms,” that help you encourage each other to practice your new skill. The result will be better communication and satisfaction in your relationship. In 30 days, you can repeat the process and see your improvement.

Speaking

Having completed the foundation for effective communication which is the Listening section, you and your partner will once more answer questions. This time about how you think you speak to each other. Then again, you will become a mirror to your partner as you each answer questions about how you think your partner speaks to you. Once more you engage in a carefully constructed discussion of your findings. After discussing your findings, you choose a new speaking skill. Partners agree to encourage each other in the practice of their new skill. Then you are ready to create your new Action Plan. Your Plan virtually guarantees improvement in the way you speak to each other and greater satisfaction in your marriage. In 30 days repeat the process and see your improvement.

Learn how it works
Environment

Finally, you will deal with the environment in which you communicate. Again, you answer questions, this time about the context in which each chooses to communicate with the other. Next you become a mirror to each other by answering questions about the environment you think your partner chooses for communication. After engaging in a carefully constructed discussion of your findings you will choose a new environmental skill. Partners agree to encourage each other in the practice of their new skill. Then, you create your proven Action Plan which, when followed, produces better communication and greater satisfaction in your relationship. In 30 days repeat the process and see your progress.

You can retake The Marriage Mirror as often as you like for one full year. Repeating this proven process will be an encouragement to your marriage.

Fact:

Couples that communicate effectively have a happier relationship!

Marital research dispels all doubt: couples who communicate effectively consistently report greater marital satisfaction. These couples are healthier, and happier, and positively influence other couples-consequently these couples may also live longer.

Couples with poor communication are often caught in a vicious cycle where poor communication contributes to marital dissatisfaction, which in turn further hinders the ability to successfully communicate. The cycle, when not corrected, continues to degrade the relationship.

Effective communication is the ability to have a common understanding between the speaker and listener as to what the speaker intends to communicate.  This is more natural for children than it is for adults. Often as adults, we are unaware of the behaviors that hinder effective communication.  The Marriage Mirror identifies things you are doing well and reinforces them and pinpoints your “blind spots”  that hinder communication and provides the methodologies you can use to change your communication for the better.

You will have the ability to develop a Personal Action Plan that will lead you through a proven process to communication success. As you conduct your experiment with The Marriage Mirror®, it is our prayer that you will enjoy the process and the positive results.

The Marriage Mirror® is the perfect place to bring increased enjoyment in communication with your partner.
