You know that your husband’s Love Language is acts of service. You are doing act of service for him and he doesn’t seem to be appreciating it as much as he used to. Or your husband says he needs you to support him more and you think to yourself, “I have been running around crazy doing all these errands for you. What do you mean you need more support from me?!” Has this ever happened?
Your honey’s Love Language might have changed! Yes. It can indeed happen! Most often love languages change when circumstances in your life change.
For example: If your love language was words of affirmations then you have a baby. Acts of service may rank higher now because you are exhausted and could use some help. If your husband was to help you it may say I love you more than if he was to say, “You are a great mom to our new baby.”
Your husband’s language was physical touch before he lost his job. Now he is needing more words of affirmations to let him know you believe in him and that he is still an awesome husband.
Life changes often change love languages. Or what Gary Chapman says is that these other love languages become more “attractive” to us.
I have noticed now that I am working from home I seek more words of affirmations from Ryan. I want him to tell me he appreciates what I am doing to work on our business. I feel the need for encouragement from him. Things of that nature. My primary love language was quality time previously. And although that is still important to me words of affirmations have become more attractive.
