Did 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.
