In this episode of the Beyond Your Wedding Day Podcast, we continue our discussion on the book The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. We discuss chapter 7 entitled “Love Language #4: Acts of Service.”

It’s a special 9 year wedding anniversary edition of the show for Mike and Mandy!

-Acts of service (cooking a meal, setting the table, cleaning the bathroom, doing the dishes, cleaning the house, mowing the grass, paying the bills, etc) are all ways to show love

-it may be helpful for a spouse whose primary love language is acts of service to write down a list of 4 to 5 things that if their spouse did would help them feel loved  (ex: make the beds everyday, vacuum the house once per week, etc.)

-what we do for each other before marriage is no indication of what we will do for each other after marriage (after the “in-love” feeling wears off)

-Love is a choice and cannot be coerced

*it’s impossible to demand love from someone

*requests work much better than demands and criticism

-Pay attention to your spouse’s criticisms-they are most likely telling you THERE love language

-When we treat our spouses as servants, they are no longer your lover

I’d love to help you and your spouse or fiance get on the same page financially. Here’s how.
