Marissa Dueñas Kitses ENG 104 Misunderstandings often arise in the communication between husbands and wives. In their article, “Man to Man, Woman to Woman,” Mark A. Sherman and Adelaide Haas talk about the problems and solutions that young married couples may run into, as does Joyce Maynard in her article, “His Talk, Her Talk.” I will discuss the problems that young married couples would run into in a marriage, the solutions to those problems, if whether the sources used are reliable and if the articles were reader friendly or not.

Generally, there are a lot of reasons why misunderstandings come about.
