How to use the Love Languages to Better Your Marriage
The Love Languages test can help you understand your partner, communicate better with others and spark your marriage and life.
A few years ago, on a 22-hour drive to visit my family, I stumbled across the Love Languages test while scrolling my phone.
I turned to my husband and said “what the heck, wanna take it?”, so we spent some time going through the questions and getting to know each other’s love languages.
Mine is words of affirmation.
His is physical touch.

We spent the rest of the car ride talking about what that looked like for each of us, stuff that makes us feel loved, and how we could make a better effort at speaking each other’s languages.
Why love languages matter?
Everyone is different, has different needs, and if we treat each relationship the same way we’re bound to hit some brick walls.
When you speak someone’s language, you’ll connect with them better, conversations are easier and it really shows that you care.
Communication is tough in marriage, heck in any relationship and, even though I know my husband’s love language, it doesn’t mean that we still don’t go toe-to-toe sometimes. But, knowing how to speak his language allows me to apologize and explain myself in a way that he understands and connects to.
But I’m gonna be honest… I am not very creative. Pinterest gives me 90% of my ideas and inspiration and I love anything that saves me time and gives me a great idea.
