CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

  • BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

In every human relationship such as marriage, communication is something that must go on communication can be regarded as the fourth basic need of man, apart from other basic needs which include: food, shelter and security. There is no how two or more persons can meet one another in the view of sharing ideas, opinions, suggestions and what have you without communication.

One can never really say “I know her completely”. Each of the partners keeps changing and this is one of the most interesting aspects of marriage. There is always a new thing to discover and learn about one’s spouse, this can only be done through effective communication.

Communication fails, when one wakes up one day to face a stranger and this stranger will be ones husband or wife. This happens because at a point the couple stopped communicating that is to say they stop talking to each other about what they feel, what they think and what they hope for each other.

Everyday, marriages are hitting the rocks, families are crumbling and the children are often left in a state of dilemma. Marriage which is supposed to be a life-long, Universal, sacred, Joyful and a union between a man and a woman, where both were meant to be one has become a term that evokes many traumatic experiences for husbands, wives and children.

       Sociologist and scholars have a long list of the causes of family disorganization and instability but very few pay attention to or breakdown in communication as one of the major causes of family problems. Many marriages tear apart because couples who live side by side, who eat and sleep together could not really talk to each other. They do talk but not of the things that touch them deeply. They do not dare to speak openly of those things that make them feel alone, misunderstood and sad. The best strategy to employ is effective communication, which is not a monthly or weekly activity but a daily food of marriage.

       Therefore, based on the above problems, the researcher has decided to carry out a study on the role of interpersonal communication in marriage relationships.

  • STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

Some marriage works while some do not. A lot of cases abound where couples live together, estranged from each other. Those who feel that they have had enough of the “rubbish stuff’ in marriage plunge into divorce straight away. The high rate of divorce and marital problems has become a problem in marriage relationships.

This problem prompted the researcher into this study, believing that at the end of the study, it will proffer solutions to them. Some marriages crumble because of lack of interpersonal communication. The question then is what role can interpersonal communications play in the maintenance of a stable marriage.

OBJECTIVES OF STUDY

  1. The main objective of this study is to find out whether inadequate interpersonal communication contributes to the failure of marriage.
  2. To know whether interpersonal communication builds trust in marriage relationships.
  3. To find out how interpersonal communication can create understanding in marriage relationships.

    • SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The emphasis on mass communication has resulted in little or no attention to other types of communication. Interpersonal communication takes place more often among people than mass communication. This is to say man’s interaction with man happens more often than man’s exposure to the mass media. In various situation of life: interpersonal communication has been destructively and constructively used.
