The Five Love Languages

Learning the way your partner gives and receives love is a fast, easy way to improve your relationship. The 5 Love Languages are based on the idea that we all have a preferred way that we want to receive love. If we know how our spouse or partner wants to receive love, we can be sure to express it that way. If we are expressing love in a way that our partner does not perceive as love, it can lead to problems!

“Our most basic emotional need is not to fall in love but to be genuinely loved by another, to know a love that grows out of reason and choice, not instinct. I need to be loved by someone who chooses to love me, who sees in me something worth loving.” – Gary Chapman
