PUT IT INTO PRACTICE
Figure out your love language and that of your partner. If you’re stuck, take the test on www.5lovelanguages.com – it takes just a few minutes, and there are lots of extra resources available on the website. Sit down and talk about it. Come up with ways in which you can speak each other’s language: whether it’s planning a weekend away for just the two of you (Quality Time), or dropping a hint about what you would like for your birthday (Receiving Gifts). Keep in mind that your love language might change in certain situations: right now, your primary love language might be Words of Affirmation, but if you have a baby, for instance, you may feel overwhelmed by the practical aspects of child care, and find that you appreciate Acts of Service more than you did before.
