Falling in love is the easy part—maintaining that love is where it gets tricky. Once the initial “honeymoon” phase of infatuation is over, love requires hard work to thrive. The biggest reason that people fall out of love is due to a lack of proper communication. The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts posits that when you speak to your partner in their primary love language, you communicate your love for them in a manner that they can understand. And once they understand how much you love them, they will reciprocate and love you back.
