How many times have you done something to show your partner some love to only have them act unappreciative? Most likely it was because you were speaking YOUR love language and not THEIRS.
In this episode, we’re talking Love Languages and the book “The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts” By Gary Chapman. We’re talking all about how our own love language has changed over the years and how learning to love your partner in the way they receive love can do wonders for your relationship
What We’re Sipping on This Episode:
2018 Matchbook Estate Bottled Dunnigan Hills Red Gravel Cabernet Sauvignon – Our second Cab Sav of the month, Sasha and Shara thought this wine was strong! According to Matchbook this wine has “mouth-coating flavors of blackberry, black cherry, clove and star anise“. Of course the ABV in 13% which makes it a good contender for drinking but it has an overpowering flavor. We agree with the tasting notes that it works well with beef or even a rich dessert. As Shara says, this seems like a manly wine.
About the Episode
This week Sasha and Shara dived into The 5 Love Languages and how it’s helped them understand their partners and themselves. The 5 Love Languages – quality time, words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of service, and gifts – can help you and your partner recognize not only how you receive love but how you should give it.
Sasha and her hubby took the 5 Love Languages Quiz back in 2014. After marriage and a baby they recently took it again. Both were surprised to find that their languages have changed. Getting a better understanding of what they now need from each other has helped them make sure their on the same page.
Shara knows that her and her hubby speak vastly different love languages. They’ve both had to learn how to get on the same page when it comes to showing love. While it can be an adjustment, it’s worth it for their marriage.
Shara said it best – if you’re speaking English and your partner speaks French, you’ll never understand each other. Learning your love language, and even more importantly, your partner’s, can help bridge that gap.
