This argument identifies the key explanations and the key points related to the development appeals and arguments related to the arguments and discussions related to men and women and how difficult it is for them to communicate with each other and how it is affecting their married life and love life. This argument revolves and surrounds the impressions of communication as per the different genders and increasing rate of divorce.


The argument certainly defines the increasing rate of divorce and the reason given by women is lack of conversation between the couple whereas the men do not consider it as an issue. Failed conversations have become a key reason and a very major problem between the couple and mainly women find it an annoying conversation and talking is a very important factor in married life. Certain differences are witnessed in between the thinking and perceptions of men and women both in the childhood socialization that takes place in the communication that is based on the cross-culture as the pitfalls and attraction that entice the behavior of both men and women. As women always complain about the silence of men. As this is observed the same-sex individuals have a greater number of topics and conversations in comparison of different sexes and genders. As per the opinion that both the men and women should understand that conversation is very important in married life and both the individuals in should do efforts to make the divorce rate less and have realistic demands as per the behaviors of both the individuals.


This argument certainly concludes that conversation is very important between a couple and it is mostly demanded by the women and both of the behaviors should be altered as per the requirements and needs.


“One’s social network does not decide their social anxiety, interpersonal communication role plays a vital role in relationship b/w social anxiety &supposed social support.”

This quote certainly explains that it does not matter that how many friends or acquittances a person has or how many people they are surrounded with, but interpersonal communication plays a very important role in social anxiety. Moreover, social support and social anxiety are interrelated to such an extent that people get affected by it and fall into social anxiety and depression. Moreover, however, if any individual has a small group but that small group should have that level of interpersonal communication that other people and groups are not needed, moreover social anxiety and social support have an interrelationship that is significantly linked to each other as per the human behavior. Yes, it is agreed that social network defines social anxiety but not to an extreme extent (Barnett, et al., 2021).

“Women and men talk and listen differently, as well as have different relationships. This depends upon socialization and upbringing. The gap between the gender is well and alive in the workplace.”

This quote explains that after all the equality, there is a lot of difference in their behavior and upbringing. People are gender bias but this is a fact that men and women have different perceptions about everything and behave differently in different situations. Both genders have different opinions, different ways of reacting, and different ways of dealing with problems. Every organization at some point does biasness that have responsibilities and have different modes of better communication and both the genders play a very important role in accomplishment and have different types of logic and credibility. At the current period, everything is named upon gender and this needs to be ended as not every problem is linked with gender (LORE CROGHAN, 1993).

“The gender linguistics shows that it is genetically determined that online communication is ideal space for gender detecting the stereotypes of gender as it is increasing on daily basis.”

The quote explains the corresponding stereotypes that have reflected upon the linguistic exclusions as well as the independence as per the person. Moreover, the formulation of different variants in terms of gender stereotyping contains gender audits and preliminary research. As online communication has taken over the other forms of communication, the language and its barriers should have greater awareness among the individuals (Burel, 2018).
