Intimate partners have been encouraged to open up and develop a talking culture in their relationships in order to curb the escalating gender based violence (GBV).

Communication has been pointed out as one of the most important aspects of a satisfying marriage. Facilitators and participants of Talking with the Thabas television show said this during the filming of an episode on GBV on Saturday at Mass Media Complex.

The coordinators of the show, a couple Percy and Ashley Thaba said partners develop bad habits and create destructive patterns when things are not going well in their relationships or marriages. Therefore, they explained that the show is aimed at helping people deal with real life issues in their marriages. Worried by the escalating GBV cases in Botswana the Thabas said they came up with the topic to tackle and discuss GBV for healthier marriages. Ashley said the discussion on GBV that will soon be aired on Btv would go a long way in making a difference and helping families as many women suffer at the hands of their partners.  She also said a majority of people especially women are abused by their partners but they suffer in silence. She therefore challenged them to break the silence, open up and develop a talking culture.
