Average Communication in Marriage


Impact, Butterick Pub. Co., quoted in Family Life Today, June, 1989

Married couples spend an average of 27.5 minutes per week talking to each other, according to Ray Bridwhistell, speech communication expert. TV viewing (46 hours per week), children, household chores, social obligations, and working wives are the reasons for this lack of communication between spouses.
