This book introduces the five love lanuages people speak including words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch.
I think among all five love languages most girls speak quality time. This explains why girls like to gather and chithat, or go shopping with several girlfriends for hours.
Words of affirmation is very important to guys. Afterall, God has made men the head of the households and has asked the wives to respect their husbands. Challenging the authority of your beloved ones is definitely not a good idea, and this shall not be limited to treating husbands.
