Ask any marriage expert and they’ll tell you that communication is the key to a lasting relationship. And while most of us love our spouses and won’t think of changing them for the world, don’t we sometimes wish we could read their minds (and vice versa), just to see what makes them tick when the going gets tough?

Try applying the concept of love languages and you’ll remove the guess work. Marriage therapist and author Dr Gary Chapman coined this term coined as he believes that everyone  expresses and feels love differently.

When he came up with the Five Love Languages, he noted that if couples find out what each other’s primary love language is, they will understand what their partners want from the relationship. In turn, they will be able to express their love in a more meaningful way.

If quality time is your spouse’s main love language, the most important thing is to give your full, undivided attention. That means no computers, no mobile phones and no other distractions.

So, take the Love Language quiz to learn more about you and your partner’s preferred language of love. Late, put the results into practice by offering and receiving love the way he or she likes it.

Love Language 1: Words of Affirmation   

People who prefer the language of words of affirmation language are all for expressing affection through the spoken word.  Your spouse will most likely want to hear terms of endearment, compliments and encouraging words.

So, plan a cosy dinner, followed by a stroll through a park. Focus on saying words like “I love you”, “You are beautiful” and “I’m so proud of you” and of course, most importantly make sure you mean it.
No-go area: Bear in mind that your significant other will take insulting or negative words to heart and not forget them easily, so try to keep them out of your vocabulary. 

Love Language 2: Quality Time

If this is your spouse’s main love language, the most important thing is to give your full, undivided attention. That means no computers, no mobile phones and no other distractions.

A date night could simply be both of you getting cosy on a couch, just sharing and focusing on each other. Make sure the television isn’t switched on and your mobile phone is kept far away.
No-go area: One sure way to upset your spouse is to cancel or postpone a date, or when your mind starts drifting off when he or she is talking.
