COM200: Interpersonal Communication
Communication between people especially spouses has become a harder task than what it once was. Sometimes when I try to talk with my husband it ends up causing a fight and we are unable to get the main point of the conversation in the first place.

Even the younger generation is doing more texting and communication on the internet than the way communication once was. I sometimes sit and think about the future of communication and it scares me how just talking to someone someday will become a thing of the past. Hopefully people in my generation can get their children to put down their devices and talk again. The world could be a happier place if we just talked to each other again face to face, letter to letter, friend to friend.
