True Love — Live Happily Ever After

How do you define love?  How do you define happiness?  How do you know you’re in a successful marriage? (I wish I knew.  If I had all the answers, I’d be a world-renowned marriage counselor!)

According to Dr. Gary Chapman, pastor, marriage counselor, and author of numerous bestsellers on love and marriage, “Perfect couples only live on wedding cakes.  Marriage requires communication — talking and listening — working as a team.  Marriage is a safe place to work on your relationships together.”

In The Five Love Languages, Dr. Chapman discusses the languages people use to communicate with one another:

  • Words of affirmation
  • Gifts
  • Acts of Service (doing something for others)
  • Quality Time (give undivided attention)
  • Physical Touch (holding hands, kissing, sex)

(Take this quizWhat’s your love language?)

Here’s another word of wisdom from Dr. Chapman:

Communication is to the marriage what breathing is to the body.  Without breath, we die.  Without communication, marriage dies.

Last but not least, I share with you on this Valentine’s Day, lives of a picture-perfect couple (no, they’re not on wedding cakes):
