Reading the first pages of a certain book, someone wanted to know why things change after marriage – he was inquiring from the author. He has been out of 3 different marriages in 16 years and wonders how the very sweet love story transformed into an irritating one that led to a divorce, 3 separate times.
In tackling the above situation, the author said:
The problem is that we have overlooked one fundamental truth: People speak different love languages
Of a truth, we all speak different love languages as outlined in this very influential book. The five (5) basic love languages include:
- Words of affirmation
- Quality time
- Receiving gifts
- Acts of service
- Physical touch
The essential point is that we all have a primary love language and in order to make it work with our partners, we should endeavor to learn a secondary love language (our partner’s).
