Every marriage has its ups and downs.

It can get very frustrating when you try to get your wife to hear your side of a discussion, but she is not ready to listen.

Here is one simple trick to get your point across without getting into another fight or disagreement.

Sit down with a pen and paper, and write down what you would like to tell your wife.

This may seem simple and old fashioned, but it is very effective.

Arguing with your spouse can take a lot of time and emotional energy. Writing your point of view on a paper, will eliminate this emotional distress.

Good communication is very important. However, the art of communication deteriorated when we got used to communicating via text messages and social media.

However, those avenues can lead to misunderstandings. Many people have reported issues due to misspelled words or the phone changing words.

When you sit down to write your point on a nice card or a piece of paper, start by telling your wife what she means to you, how she has changed you life in a good way and how much you love her.

Then address the issue at hand. Write it as if you were talking to her.

When you write, you can express your thoughts, feelings, and your point of view without being interrupted by your wife.

End the letter on a positive note with a compliment or a loving message. Sign it and add a smiling heart or smiley face.

You can give her the letter along with a bunch of flowers, her favorite chocolates, or any other treat that she likes.

You can either hand the letter directly to your wife or put it in a place where your wife will find it when she has some quiet time.

Don’t rush to discuss the issue.

Give her time to read and reread your letter or card so she can absorb your message. Wait for her to bring it up and then you can calmly talk to her about it since you have gotten your point across.
