You've Got to Have the Right Parts, "Communication in Marriage". Part 6

By Norman & Ann Bales Of All About Families


Marriages, like people, come in all colors, shapes and personality styles. It is the quality of the bond between the two partners, and what happens on the basis of that bond, that matters. Can we look at a couple and predict that they will have a healthy marriage?

Dr. Truman Esau in his book Making Marriage Work says that over the years he has come to realize four elements that characterize a healthy marriage. They are: empathy, valuing, loyalty and sexuality. According to Easu, the presence and quality of these four factors determine the essential quality of the marriage.

Let's look at each of these elements and see how and why they are vital to a healthy marriage.
