Instead, each other’s love language should be communicated with each other so that partners can understand and respect how we want to be loved. Don’t just code!

The importance of love language for the harmony of your relationship Of course, recognizing your partner’s love language will increase harmony in a relationship.

Psychologist Sani explains some of the benefits of recognizing the love language: Conflict will be minimized because now you understand each other better and know how to show love to your partner, especially when your partner is feeling sensitive or not in a good mood. Reduce disappointment because expectations are too high. Often in a relationship we expect our partner to treat us in a, b, c, and d ways.

In fact, your partner may not necessarily catch that expectation because of your different love languages, for example. Relationships become more intimate and romantic. When we know how our partner wants to be loved, we can better satisfy our partner’s needs by treating them according to their love language. Your partner will feel more loved, understood, and respected by you.
