21 Conversation Starters to Help Couples Struggling to Communicate

The relationship between my wife and I was a long distance one for our entire courting and engagement season. There is good news and bad news about being in a long distance relationship. The good news is you are forced to learn how to communicate. The bad news is you only see each other every so often. But, because of the distance, conversation starters came somewhat easy.

Now that we are married we still continue to use some of the methods that helped us achieve that great level of open communication.
