If you're married (or in any serious relationship), you've likely heard how important it is to "keep communication flowing." They say a marriage only works by making sure there's a consistently open and honest dialogue, where each party feels comfortable sharing their insights and feelings. Healthy communication equals a healthy marriage.
Allow me to disagree. I've learned over the last several months that a healthy marriage comes from knowing when to talk, but (more importantly) knowing when to seal your lips shut with carpenter's glue.
