Both spouses express and feel loved differently based on their gender differences. To help each other and themselves, spouses should programme their mind in understanding how a man expresses love/ how a woman expresses love. In this way, when their spouse expresses something, they can link it up to their emotion and decode their language to help themself understand, what their spouse is saying and what it means.
Although it would be perfect if a spouse express love the way the other will understand it. It might be a bit overwhelming if we expect the other spouse to express love in a way which he/she might not be comfortable with or feel natural. It is possible to learn it. It would make your own life easier.
When that is said, spouses must also learn how their spouse feel un-loved based on their gender. Because it is different between a man and a woman. To prevent us from expressing something than can be hurtful for the relationship and decrease love.
