Building Healthy Families Husbands, listen up! Did you know that 90% of good communication is listening, not talking? When your wife is talking to you, stop what you are doing, turn toward her, and look at her face. Communicate the message that you are interested in and care about what she is saying. This is respectful, courteous, and is one way to build a great relationship!     -Lutheran Family Service
