Relationships Don't Have to be a Major Payne!

Major Payne Poster
In the movie, Major Payne (1995), Major Benson Winifred Payne is speaking to his cadets and says, "What we've got here is a failure to communicate."

In March 2013, celebrities Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough called it quits on their 2-year relationship because of their "hectic" work schedules. Is that a good enough reason to break up?

Those of you who are in relationships can understand that no matter what you say, if your spouse or significant other is not open to communicate with you, then no communication will take place.  It is almost as if the cord has been cut...

Don't let this happen to you!
If you are totally disconnected, then what?  How can you fix a total severance of the cord?  I don't know.  Sounds hard to fix.  It is a lot easier if you don't let this happen in the first place.  I know of couples that work all day and then come home and want to be left alone or just "take it easy," which can be understandable on occasion.  For it to be a regular occurence, it is a dangerous thing.  This can wear on a relationship.

Only hanging by a thread

So many relationships are left looking like this.  Only hanging there by a thread.  Waiting for one wrong move, or one harsh word to send you into a fit of rage, spiraling out of control.  It can be a back and forth thing, and if no one takes the initiative to get righted...

Eventually the boat will capsize.  Both parties will fall in and get wet.  And both parties will have to deal with this wreckage.  It is a shame if it has to come to this.

It is even worse if only one party remains, with their cord severed.   

It takes two to tango.
It takes two people to fight, and it is not just one person's fault over the other when communication fails.  It just means that love is not getting through.  It might not be sent properly, or maybe it's not being received as intended.  Sounds like they are not using the same language or the same channels.

So when will the love move completely from sender to receiver?

When they swim together in the same pond.  Communication is the highway on which love travels.
