We decided to spend $15 on each other for Christmas.
When Christmas morning arrived, my husband opened the best gift I could get him for $15 (I've always been a bargain hunter), and I opened my $50 leather jacket.
That’s when I discovered my husband’s primary love language.
Through the years, I’ve learned not to say I admire something expensive in a store unless I want to receive it for a gift later.
Dr. Gary Chapman's 5 love languages identify "your emotional communication preference"-- the way you feel most loved and connected. They include:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Receiving Gifts
- Quality Time
- Physical touch
- How does he express love most often?
- What type of things does he request most often?
- What does he complain about most often?
You can answer a questionaire on Gary Chapman's site to help you define your love language:
