During our engagement period, my husband and I read a book called the 5 love languages by Gary Chapman. It’s probably one of the best and most helpful books we’ve ever read as a couple. It guided our understanding of how we desired to be loved and how we loved others. The book explains that there are 5 different love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, receiving gifts, quality time and physical touch. I learned that my husband’s main love language is words of affirmation and mine is acts of service. The book didn’t create these love languages in us rather it gave definition and words to what we already felt.
