Restoring Emotional Love

Can emotional warmth be reborn in a marriage? I believe the answer is ‘yes,’ and it begins with loving actions. If you simply wait for warm emotions to return, you may wait in vain. But, if you choose loving actions, you set in motion the cycle which stimulates warm emotions. I have seen many troubled marriages restored by loving actions. You may ask, “What kind of loving actions?”  That depends on your spouses’ love language. In my book: The 5 Love Languages, I talk about Words of affirmation, Quality Time, Gifts, Acts of Service and Physical Touch. If you want to know the love language of your spouse, listen to his complaints.  The complaint reveals what would really make him feel loved. Speak his love language and you touch his heart.
