The 5 Love Languages
And Why Its Not For You
Hey, there sweethearts!
I have a question for you: are you two speaking the same language? Ok, ok. I can see how this is a “duh” question! Obviously, if you weren’t you probably would not have made it pass a first date, nevermind the alter! But, seriously though, are you?
In order for a marriage to be successful you have to be speaking each others language. Once you two start speaking a “foreign” language to each other, things get a tad bit…muddy.
Here are 5 easy steps you can be taking – today – to be speaking each others language:
Know what language you speak fluently.
To do that follow the steps outlined here:
Know what language your spouse speaks
Follow the same steps found in STEP 1. However, answer the question as if you were your spouse.
Then, have your spouse take the exam
Lastly, compare your answers. Are you two already speaking the same language?
Learn the language of your spouse
Discuss both of your results together. Rank the languages from 1-5 for each of you. Note if there is any matching. If not, it’s time to learn a new language!
Speak the language of your spouse
On our previous post “3 Mind-Blowing Facts About Your Husband“ we spoke about how at times we do not know whether our spouse loves us or not. By displaying love according to your spouse love language, you’ll never have to worry about your stance with them.
As with learning any new language, its tough to get fluent in a language that is new to you: especially one that makes you really uncomfortable. Thus, you might find yourself trying to regress back to your primary language of choice. Do not do that. Just slowing but surely practice to get better at it. However, practice does not make perfect! It makes permanent.
Therefore, be intentional on how you do things.
This is why the 5 love languages is not about you but your spouse. The 5 love languages were designed to help you love on your spouse on the level that resonants with them the most.
Thus, take the time to learn your spouse’s love language and serve them in that state.
