How to Make a Silent Husband Talk

Wives are known to do the more talking while the husband makes a good listener. But it is also unhealthy if the husband does not talk enough.

Being a good provider is not sufficient to be called a good husband. You must also know his ideas about future plans for the family, welfare of the children and most of all, his feelings for you.

My husband, thank God, is not the silent type, at least not with me. We can talk about anything and everything under the sun :).

Would you be willing to be a host for PPBC, Angel? :)

That means my wife should thank God too. I am a very talkative and a happy person. I believe I have many things to say and I love sharing ideas.

About PPBC, of course I would love to host it. If I am correct, that is twice a week, right?

Just inform me then about the details. I understand there's already someone assigned to the 3rd edition.

Thanks.

Maybe we're soulmates Mon...lol!

I think I should be glad I have no in-laws in the neighborhood. My wife and children are basically deaf because we all talk loud...he he he!

We are only four in the house but every time we're complete it's like a senate hearing full of debate...but happy!

Thanks for the visit, as usual.

I think this post demonstrates an important aspect of interpersonal communication - which is the ability to see things from the other person's point of view.

geez, all of you seem to have talkative husbands. :) my hubby is a bit on the quiet side and lets me have my way. Though some women wants that it could get frustrating at times whenever i'm in mood for a discussion he wouldn't rise to the bait..

don't get me wrong he's not "under" he just so tolerant and patient. maybe ill try out your suggestions..

Hi Pinaywife,

This only proves that men are not created equal.

Thanks for sharing.

this is not a problem to me, either as my hubby talks and talks he he he! but sometimes, men are just naturally inept at expressing their true feelings - thus the breakdown of communication begins.

i know some men who cannot talk unless they are drunk. there are some who need prodding in order to share their deepest thoughts.

i try to be more open to my hubby's criticisms (which are not often, thankfully), so as to encourage him more the next time to be more open. as a communicator i most aware that this is crucial if I have to be able to reach him.

Hi Modernmariaclara,

Pls. tell your husband that one time we can have two bottles....lol!

Kidding aside, men need to express their feelings and talking is a very powerful tool.

Thanks for dropping by consistently.
