What is most important for a relationship to succeed - sex, love, or communication?You might have read hundreds of articles that say that communication is very important for a relationship to grow. You might have heard millions of people saying that a relationship can't exist without love. And some people understand sex as the most essential ingredient of a healthy marriage.Actually, love sex and communication are all equally important for a relationship to prosper. The lack of any one of them may result in a less than perfect relationship; let me explain it to you.All Communication is not equalCommunication is very important for a relationship. There is no doubt about that. But what kind of communication is important for a relationship? What people do not talk about mostly is how to have good communication, that is, what is it that ensures good communication within a couple relationship.Here's the thing - we are all communicating something to others all the time but what might be questionable is what we are communicating. For a communication to be supportive of a good relationship it must be appropriate; coming from a caring and loving place not from spite or resentment.And don't think that communication is only about words. A single piece of communication has three parts to it; the words, the gestures and the tone of voice. And you may be surprised to know that the words are only about 7% of the total communication. Of the remaining - 70% is about gestures - including facial expression and body stance and the remaining 23% is about tone of voice.And Love is important for good communication.Simply put - if two people do not love each other, they will never be able to have good communication, no matter how long they stay together.And finally if the communication is not good then your sex will also not be good. This is simply because if you cannot communicate with your partner what you like to experience in love making then how can you expect to get what you want? You will not have the intimacy or the ecstasy that a couple who has love enjoys.I would like to qualify something here though - when I speak of sex, I'm not just referring to the sexual act but to the closeness that two people have with each other in a truly loving relationship.So you see love, sex and communication are just like three corners of a triangle, if any of the corners are weak, your marriage will struggle. For a relationship of grow and flourish you really need to pay attention to all three, communication, sex and love, equally.
