My husband and I have a really hard time communicating. Because of his stress levels (he suffers from PTSD) whenever we try to talk about even the simplest thing it turns into a HUGE blow out. One of my friends gave me a book full of questions that you can ask each other (random ?'s from relationships, to sex, and family issues) and they are just supposed to help you open up to each other. Well, since we have such a hard time talking, I made him go out for coffee with me the other night and told him to bring a notebook. I brought one as well, and the book, and we sat there for hours writing down and answering questions for each other. We would each write down a question and then switch notebooks and answer the others question. It was the best "talk" we have ever had. We learned so much about each other, and since we weren't talking we couldn't argue. I would seriously reccomend doing something like this if you have communication issues, My husband and I haven't felt this close in a long time :)
