Every individual is unique, and their needs and expectations for love are different. This book is meant to be a guide to a happy and healthy relationship.

LESSON 1. Everybody has their unique love language. 

Some couples love each other. However, they don’t know how to express that love properly. They do not feel loved because of the lack of communication. Hence, it is essential to understand the love language of an individual in order to love them in a way that they deserve to be loved. When people speak different love languages, it gets difficult trying to understand what different acts of love mean to different people. Acknowledging the fact that everyone has a specific love language is the first step towards understanding the needs and expectations of someone.

Psychologists have proven countless times that the need to love and feel loved is primarily a human emotional need. We need to feel loved, to be emotionally and mentally happy. However, people experience love differently, and certain gestures of love mean different things to different people. 

Knowing your partner’s love language is an essential step towards understanding the psychological and emotional needs of your partner. This in turn will ensure that you know how to make your partner feel loved and appreciated. Divorce lawyers, marriage counselors and relationship experts emphasize the need to make sure that both the people in a relationship feel loved. Most divorce stories begin from one partner not feeling adequately loved or appreciated. Simultaneously, they often feel emotionally disrespected by their spouse/partner. 

In order to have a happy relationship, one that runs its course without too many hurdles, one must communicate with their partner about what makes them happy, appreciated and loved. Most partners prefer direct communication and are more likely to cater to their partner’s needs if it has been directly communicated. Family therapist Sarah Clark concludes that warning signs like a change in your partner’s routine, like constantly being on the phone, being secretive or having late shifts at the office, are all signs of problematic marriages. 

Many individuals often feel intimidated to put forth their demands regarding how they want to be loved. However, communicating and being clear about what one needs in order to be emotionally well and happy, is precisely what makes the relationship smooth. It is important to note that there is not a single person who can fulfill all our needs. It is therefore important to identify our primary love language. A relationship only grows stronger through the understanding of each other’s love languages
