    This study takes a look at returning OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers) from labor migration and their overall communication with their left-behind spouses. Aside from the migrant spouse’s return, the study also takes a look at how the shift from mediated to face-to-face communication becomes a factor that affects the relationship between the spouses. This study also investigates labor migration in the Philippines, how labor migration affects power relations between spouses, and the role of a migrating parent to a child. The lack in studies focusing on the interpersonal communication between a returning migrant spouse and left-behind spouse is addressed. More importantly, this study looks at how interpersonal communication is affected by the mediated communication of spouses prior to the return of the migrating spouse.
