The article emphasizes the significance of communication in enhancing relationships in farming families in Great Britain. Support groups observe that problems in farming are taking their toll on relationships, with ever more farmers' marriages at risk. Money worries, heavier workloads and stress -- often associated with the single farm payment -- have contributed to husband-and-wife difficulties, says Steve Cowles, a volunteer with Farm Crisis Network. Support groups believe that communication is the key to enhancing family relations.
