Non Verbal Communication
In my marriage class we are talking about the importance of non verbal communication in relationships. There can be many miscommunications due to the interpretations of cues that are not portrayed correctly. A few examples are tone of voice, sarcasm, body language and facial expressions. These things are sometimes are hard to control when emotions are running high. This is what makes getting to know someone else's family difficult. You're trying to decode all the underlying social cues and what is deemed acceptable in conversation. With how our generation is progressing technologically we communicate more often in non face to face ways. The biggest was is through texting and over social media. There is now an entire texting etiquette. With emoticons trying to mimic interpersonal relationships.
