In light of the three languages and how they impact every marriage, prayerfully answer the following questions:

1. Which language primarily characterizes your marriage: Language I (intimacy)? Language II (information)? Or Language III (motivation)?

2. If your marriage is primarily a series of Languages II and III, what can you do to restore Language I? Maybe asking your spouse to forgive you would be a good place to begin.

3. In the next six months how can you restore Language I to your marriage? Why not ask God to remind you of your early days with your mate, those days of new love and romance. Then ask Him to help you recapture those Language I experiences: words of love, tenderness, affection, understanding, sensitivity, sincerity, appreciation, gratitude, anticipation, etc.
