PUT IT INTO PRAC­TICE

Fairlady Bride - - Advice -

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.
