Marriage and Communication

I have a GREAT relationship with my wife, Thank G-d
have found that our greatest "differences" (read that, yes, 'arguments') come when we're not on the same page.

When we talk it out and realize that this particular disagreement came from a misunderstanding,
we can get back together more than 99% of the time.

Could the Rabbi please talk about the importance of good communication in marriage?

To me it's like the real estate agents' answer of three-times location.
The three most important things in marriage imho are:
communication, communication and communication.

Thanks for the great vid and
Keep Them Coming, PLEASE!

Very nice.

Per your request, can you make another clip with a strong reason(s) explaining why Jews must accept upon themselves the yoke of the Mitzvos. Why must we submit our will to G-D's even to die for G-D? It's wonderful he created us and I "owe him" but must I submit my entire way of life to him? Is it because this was the purpose for the creation of the world and contingent upon us living according to the Torah.

Other Disagreements

Thanks for this video. My husband and I have an unusual marriage. Our "arguments" sound more like rabbinic disputes--with the volume turned up. We argue about Torah and Halakha a lot.......and a lot more. Having met and married later in life, we have learned that this is one of the main reasons we got together: because we could have high level discussions with one another. But we definitely have many disagreements up in the stratosphere. We have learned (continue to learn) to "not take it personally" when we disagree.
And we also try to tell one another when it is just not a good time for an argument--communication like this is so important to keeping the rest of the marriage on an even keel. Letting your spouse know when you are having a bad day can make everything else much better!

Great video

What you said was very helpful. Re: Three Jews who can't agree on where to go for lunch. That comment made me laugh out loud, as I have LIVED that experience more than once!

On unity in marriage

Great video. You've become less formal, I notice; no tie. Our youngest Joey became engaged to a young lady from neighboring Scarsdale. Great family; we are thrilled. Her grandfather was the caterer of our bachor's BM.
All the best.

Great takeaway; trade what you want now for what you want in the future!

First time I have seen these comments by Rabbi Zvi. I like what I see.
