Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

There are a couple of ways to see this; From DW perspective, I'm a loathful man who needs a good amount of teaching on how to be a man. So therefore she thinks I need to apologize daily! The thought that I am constantly doing wrong means I can't do anything right and when I miss an apology, she wil...

Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

My top was planned change 32% followed closely by expressing regret 28% and making restitution 24%. The other 2 were really low. One thing I realized by this quiz is that my husband's apology language might be requesting forgiveness. Because that one is so low for me when he does apologize in this ...

Drs. Corey Allan and David Schnarch pose a question something like, "What if the wife or lower drive spouse actually has a better understanding/picture of reality of the bad sex a couple is having and doesn't want it and therefore refuses to participate?" One could ask what if either high...

Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

Mine is Accepting Responsibility. I got 0% on Requesting Forgiveness. I do ask forgiveness because I feel it's a biblical/spiritual thing that's needed. But I noticed the responses that were around asking forgiveness it had a whining feel to it, and it was a major turn off. It was also a turn off w...

Re: Men: Is having body wash/liquid soap a temptation to masturbate in the shower or bath

No, not at all. I don’t masturbate unless I’m away from my wife on a trip of more than a couple days and that decision would typically be made before a shower and probably not done in a shower.

Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

For me, I want to have someone “taking responsibility” and “making restitution”. Two of the others don’t really move the needle so if someone apologized using those languages, it wouldn’t feel like an apology to me.

Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

I know what the scriptures say about asking forgiveness, but I have an issue with asking. I can easily apologize, acknowledge my wrong, but I feel that a forced or sought out forgiveness is not always sincere. I feel forgiveness should be offered, not requested. So of the 5 Apology Languages, what ...

Re: 2/23/24 - What’s your Apology Language?

I consider all of these to be steps of making an apology. I do all five every time real hurt has occurred that need amends made. I practice this with my toddler, and we lead him through all of these as well. And my husband and I work to make sure all of these things are involved when making amends ...
