Q: Gary, I’m engaged, but the “in-love” phase seems to already be ending. How can we maintain the ‘openness’ in our relationship?
Gary: I’m glad you’re acknowledging that the “in-love” feelings are fading; if you’ve dated long enough, they’re bound to fade before you get married. That’s where the 5 Love Languages can really help you stay emotionally connected to each other. If you haven’t read the book, read it, and if you don’t know each other’s love language then I would encourage you to take the quiz. Speak that language on a regular basis and you will keep the emotional love alive in the relationship.
