Many couples end up deciding that the woman and the children will take the males last name, because that it just how it has always been and why change the tradition. Many women find that having the same last name as their husband helps them feel more like a family, and a new name is an important symbol of the journey they are taking together. Personally, when I get married, I will gladly change my last name to whatever my husband happens to be, because following the tradition is important to me. Williamson gave her own experience on how not following tradition can affect everyone in the family when she stated “He’d just delivered the happiest news of his mother’s life - that her first grandchild had been born and followed up with a sucker punch to the heart. The baby was going to have my last name” (69) Williamson’s mother-in-law is woman who
We gotta change the way we win!” Change often is followed by consequences, people accept these consequences at different rates, but it’s those who acknowledge the consequences and are able to deal with them successfully that are able to move on and compromise, making the most out of the inevitable changes. Through the techniques Boaz Yakin’s Remember the Titans and Shakespeare’s Othello we are able to enhance our understanding of the consequences of change.

The similarities of both works is the theme of Marriage, and true love. In the song "Still", Tamia is clearly singing about her marriage between she, her husband, and the true love that they share for one another. In William Shakespeare's " sonnet 116" Shakespeare is speaking his opinion about traditional marriage, and love which is very similar to Tamia's view on her marriage. Both works also describe unconditional love in very different, but similar ways. Tamia sings of how she, and her husband still love each other like the first day they met even though they both have aged, and have kids.
It varies because of mood and behavioral influences. If one is in a bad mood they will typically communicate negatively and without thinking about the affects it may have on someone else. Regardless of how we communicate we need to realize that all communication is cultural. In essence, it portrays ways we have learned to speak and send nonverbal messages. Not only are there different principles and contexts to consider, but there are also cultural barriers.
The song was talking about a couple who had an argument, and the girl was trying to keep the guy stay with her so she wrote this song for him.

After a couple months of marriage, Janie goes to visit her grandmother and her grandmother questions why she is there. Janie answers, “Cause you told me Ah mus gointer love him, and, and Ah don’t. Maybe if somebody was to tell me how, Ah could do it.” Janie initially thinks that love could be formed by someone else but she then discovers that she wants something more from a marriage. Though she was young and naïve to think that love comes after marriage, she was right to believe in her views that you need an emotional and physical connection to have true love and a successful marriage. She is searching for a relationship that offers both of these qualities.
As Ehrenreicht says the Family is the place where we go for comfort and to relax, but it is that very notion of family being a safe haven makes it all that much... In my opinion the ideal family is a group of people that have emotional, blood, or legal ties. The ideal family to me includes a monogamous marriage between two adults who are socially and financial dependent. These adults should also care for young including biological children, adopted children, or mentoring for disadvantaged children. The parents should teach the children, and also provide proper education.
Culture tends to influence almost everything pertaining to communication including nonverbal signs, language and the literal meaning of words. It is important to be aware and understand these challenges as well as the benefits that come from intercultural communication to successfully get your verbal and nonverbal messages across. “Every attempt at communication occurs within a cultural context”(smallbusiness).

Johnny Agostini Communication Project II CM206 Interpersonal Communication Carol O’Dowd 29 February 2012 Meaning is the heart of communication.

In other words, it’s not what you say but rather how you say it.
