How Do You Understand Love?

couple loveDid you know that not everyone feels and shows love the same way? Every individual has what is called a “love language”. This is the way that a person understands love. There are 5 different love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Acts of Service, Physical Touch, and Receiving Gifts. These 5 areas describe how you show your love to other people, and what matters most to you when others show love back.

I encourage you to click through http://www.5lovelanguages.com and take the quiz to find out what your love languages are. There is one for someone in a relationship and another quiz for those who are single. After taking the quiz, you’ll get your results and a description of what your love language means.

Once I realized what mine was (Words of Affirmation) and took the time to know what my husband’s was, so much began to make sense. The arguments we’d have, the things that I’d find out were important to him and the reasons why he would treat me the way that he did. It is because of what his love language is. Your relationship can be taken to a healthier level if you understand more about your spouse’s love language. I encourage you to take the time and find out… then do something about it.

    5 types of love but yet you invalidate love from sane sex couples? What about the harm you cause the countless children of sane sex couple by declaring them harmful and invalid. You really should be ashamed of yourselves !

    Dear Jeff,

    We do not aim to invalidate the love of same-sex couples. Our mission is to enable all children to reach their optimal physical and emotional health and well-being. The key word here is “optimal.” What we’re saying is that, ideally what is best for children is for them to be raised by their biological mother and biological father in a loving, stable environment. That being said, we do not live in an optimal world so the last thing we want to do is to cause any harm to the children of same-sex couples. We do not seek to declare their families invalid in any way. Instead, we aim to empower all parents to put some of their own wants aside to raise their children in an environment that is as close to optimal as possible. I hope that gives you a better picture of the ACPeds mission.

    We wish your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
