Some words of wisdom from the U.S. Army Garrison Benelux Family Advocacy Program about taking care of your relationship during hard times:
Stressful situations can have an effect on marriages and relationships. When we are under a lot of stress we often lash out at those we love most and this can put a strain on our relationships. One great program that has been proven effective for maintaining quality relationships is the 5 Love Languages. Click here for a quiz to find out you and your partner’s Love Language.
Speaking your partner’s Love Languages isn’t always easy especially if it is different from yours. The sheet below gives some tips for speaking your partner’s love language in ways that are best for them.
If things are getting more serious at home than you and/or your partner feel you can handle, please know that the Army Community Service Family Advocacy Program is still available to provide services.
