Marriage Advice & Tips: The Secret Weapon in our Marriage

Are you looking for that emotional connection with your husband?

Don’t get me wrong, I do NOT consider myself an expert in the marriage department, and we do NOT have a perfect marriage (who does?) but I do know what has worked/works for my husband and I, when it comes to our relationship. So if by letting you in on my little secret, can help you in your relationship at least a little bit, maybe a little more happiness can be spread around the world. πŸ™‚

A few years back before my husband and I were married, we were introduced to the book, “The Five Love Languages.” I honestly can’t remember who had us read it, but I’m forever thankful to them. Of course I won’t tell you what all the book says, well… because I don’t want to tick off the author of the book, Gary Chapman, but also because I want you to get the full experience while reading the book.

Get “The Five Love Languages,” on Amazon HERE!

A Bit About The Five Love Languages

It’s very simple. There are 5 categories, and after reading the book, you should find that one (or more) categories that applies to you and your spouse. I THOUGHT I knew what mine was before reading it. Turns out, I was wrong. So what are the love languages?

Quality Time

Words of Affirmation

Gifts

Acts of Service

Physical Touch

Think you know which one(s) applies to you? Uh huh… go ahead and see.

When I figured out what my husband’s love language was, I immediately started doing the things that applied to that category. I notice an extreme difference in our marriage when I make his feelings a priority over my own.

What is my love language?  “Quality Time.” Yep… when my husband decides to spend the weekend with us instead of working at the office, my heart is filled with pure joy, and I all of a sudden have butterflies in my stomach. πŸ˜‰

    I love this post! Marriage isn’t easy. It takes two dedicated people to make the decision to love and accept each other. It takes work. Marriage is nothing you do and sit back and watch. You have to participate! I never got the chance to read the 5 Love Languages. I have heard nothing but good things about it. I think that would make an awesome bedtime routine. I would have to say my love language would be Quality Time. My husband works ALL THE TIME. We rarely have time to say Hello to each other before he is going out of the door. Don’t get me wrong, I am blessed to be able to stay home, but I miss my husband too. Do you ever feel like you are two complete strangers? Sometimes thats how I feel . I appreciate you recommending this book, I really need to purchase it for the both of us. πŸ™‚

      Wow! I love love love your comment! You are exactly right. I’m so sorry you rarely see your husband. πŸ™ I totally feel like we are strangers at times. I find myself comparing our marriage to others, and that’s something else I have to work on! Again, I’m SO glad that you came by and I really hope you get a chance to read this book! Keep me posted if you end up reading it!

    Love that book! We’ve actually given it as a wedding gift to several couples we know. I’m a quality time-er, and my hubs is Words of Affirmation.

    1. Jessica says:

      What a great idea! It would make a great wedding gift!! You and I are both quality time-er’s then! Haha! So glad we “met!” Thanks for coming by!

    That book was an eye opener for our marriage as well. It opened our eyes to see that the way I was showing him love and vis versa wasn’t the way they needed. Wow to the moment of knowing how to show your spouse how much they really mean to you. Thanks Jess. I completely agree with your post. But you should read more. Haha!!

      And…. Nah. Me and reading rarely go hand in hand. Haha!

    Jessica, great post!! I love following your blog! My husband and I read this when we were dating and loved it, too!! It’s so nice to be able to know certain ways to show our spouses just how much we DO love them in the way that speaks to them most. I think we may even need to re-read it again, because it’s sure easy to forget it! Thanks for posting on this!

    1. Jessica says:

      Thank you so much! You’re so right. After reading it.. it’s like all of a sudden you get to know your spouse all over again! I’m so glad that you stopped by and shared a comment with me! XOXO
