Communication is the key facet of a balanced relationship and the sole mantra for a successful relationship. In fact, the success of all relationships depends on better and hassle-free communication among couples that ensures a seamless exchange of feelings, emotions, and faith in each other.
The importance of communication becomes dominant when relationships face conflicts because a couple in a conflict often disturbs the channels through which they interact among themselves.
In order to have a real-life example, let us discuss Kristen Bell’s case.
Celebrity couple, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepherd has the last 5 years of a successful marriage (and 12 years of a relationship) and their example is the best-suited one for explaining the importance of reaching out in bad times and couple fights.

In an interview with the People magazine (online: March 2017), the celebrity couple told that they have had a lot of fights and it gradually got so difficult for them that they had to go for couple’s therapy. The therapy helped them to improve their conflict resolution technique and they learned how to enounce and elicit their mutual feelings during the fights. The most interesting part of the couple’s learning is the fact that Kristen Bell told that she used to yell a lot, slammed the doors, and distanced herself when she was angry over something. However, Dax developed a unique tendency of reaching out to his wife by resorting to a detailed discussion at the very point of dissent. His verbatim below explains it best.
“I said to Kristen, ‘We should try hard to police ourselves about becoming contemptuous of each other,’ ” Shepard said in 2015. “If I ever see you roll your eyes at me, we need to hit pause and figure out what’s going on.”|
