AUDIO - Dr. Marty Klein - How Can A Couple Communicate When One Person Doesn’t Verbalize As Much As The Other?

No sex or marriage question is too embarrassing because it’s time to ask EmpowHer’s sexuality expert, Dr. Marty Klein, anything. Asking your questions is EmpowHer’s Founder and Chairman Michelle King Robson.

Michelle King Robson:

Dr. Klein, I have got a question from a woman who needs communication advice to help her marriage. She says, “Dr. Klein, I am a newlywed, and I absolutely adore my husband. I just don’t like to talk, and he is very detail-oriented and loves conversation. I tease him that he is more like a woman than I am because he wants greater detail, and I am already ready to move on. So what does someone who isn’t into talking do with the spouse who talks things up, down, and sideways?”

Dr. Marty Klein:
Boy, there are lots of women who wish they had your problem, huh? Well, you know, it all depends on what it is that you’re not wanting out of a conversation because there’s a lot of a reason that people say, enough already.
