You often see folks on the internet discussing how the use or absence of love languages affects their marriage. Many individuals complain that their spouse is either clueless or they just do not care enough to make a priority of expressing love through their spouse's preferred love language. I realize it is not a science and it is not always black and white clear but it goes a long way for us to show love the way our spouse receives it, otherwise, it is as if they are not receiving love at all.
Why is more consideration for love languages not given in marriages? Do you feel that individuals have a tendency to show love the way they like to receive it rather than the way their spouse needs for it to be shown? Are individuals being selfish or lazy if they do not put in the time to learn how their spouse receives love?
Is it that terribly difficult for us to cater to our spouse's preferences for receiving love? Some may say, "It is not natural for me to give love the way my spouse wants it," but is that a cop out? So it may not be natural but is it doable? Do you think individuals would feel more loved if they could better interpret the way their spouse expresses love to them? When an individual feels loved do they naturally reciprocate that love back to their spouse or not?
