[No. 17] Love is Understanding Each Other’s Love Languages

What is love? Love is understanding each other’s love languages.

What do I mean? Well, in case you haven’t read this book already – “The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman” – you absolutely should. It’s a short, quick read on the 5 love languages that each person responds to on different levels. The 5 love languages are quality time, physical touch, gifts, acts of service, and verbal affirmation. After you read the book, you can also take the test. This test helps you understand which way you receive love the best! We took this test while dating and then again while married. It is SO helpful because you can alter the way you instinctively love someone so that you’re considerate of the way they receive love the best.

For example, my husband and I are huge quality time people. If you want to make us feel loved, lets grab a cup of coffee and get lost in conversation for hours. But besides quality time, he is also a verbal affirmation person. I’m more of an acts of service kind of gal. It’s funny because he wanted to me “verbalize” more when I wanted him to “do” more. Thank goodness for communication where we can tell each other these things and love the the other person in the ways that bring them the most joy.

So tell me, if you’ve read the book, what is your love language? If you haven’t, what do you think it might be?

Cheers,

  1. I am so glad you made a post on this because the Love Languages really helped me and my boyfriend understand each other a little better! We know which ways to best show our love. It’s interesting as some other languages may get lost in translation (for example, my boyfriend rated the lowest on gifts) so it allows you to really communicate and act in a meaningful way! This is SUCH a cute series, by the way – y’all are a GORGEOUS couple!! xx Shannon || http://www.champagneatshannons.com
