"Everyone gives and receives love differently, but with a little insight into these differences, we can be confidently equipped to communicate love well. This is true for all forms of relationship – for married or dating couples, for children and teenagers, for friends and coworkers, for long-distance relationships, for those brand-new loves and for the romances that are older than the hills." Five Love Languages
My husband and I have been married for nearly ten years and together for over twelve years. It was not until last year when we both took this quiz and figured out we were loving each other the wrong way. We were loving each other the way we did when we were 18 years old and not the way our 30 year old self needs to be loved. If I could give anyone some advice before getting married it would be to know your partners love language! It's so vital to love in the way your partner accepts and feels your love. For example, it's as if your partner brings you flowers and jewelry on Valentine's Day when all you really wanted a nice dinner out and to snuggle watching a movie. Or writing your partner a love note when what he really wanted a physical touch of a back rub. When you're not on the same page, keeping your love alive can feel like an uphill battle!
