dc.description.abstract This research is concerned with poor communication as a source of conflict in the marriage, as seen from a practical-theological viewpoint. Certain questions presented themselves from within the theme, namely: What does Scripture teach regarding communication and poor communication in the marriage? What influence do interpersonal differences between marriage partners have on communication and poor communication in the marriage? How can marriage partners be guided so that poor communication within the marriage can be dealt with in such a manner as to enrich their marriage? Poor communication is the most common problem in marriages. Couples view poor communication as a major source of interpersonal conflict within the marriage. With the fall of man the communion between God and man, and between husband and wife was broken. The redemptive work of Jesus Christ made it possible for this communion between man and God and husband and wife to be restored. Communication can be effective when founded on the Scripture and conflict can be a relationship builder. The purpose of this study was to utilize Zerfass model to conduct a study regarding the meta- and basis-theoretical perspectives on poor communication and to place it in interaction with a practice-theory for pastoral theology in mind. Research has indicated that marital couples experience conflict within the marriage as a result of poor communication. It also has an effect on their relationship with God. The counsellor must be able to effectively communicate within his own marriage before he can counsel married couples. The conclusion of this research is that married couples that experience conflict as a result of poor communication can be assisted to overcome this problem and experience sound marital relationship and communication.
