This research is part of our on-going project to improve couple’s resiliency. There were two parts of the study. The first part is measuring love languages or individual types on what makes them feel loved between two age groups. Second study is assessing relationship quality. Measuring these variables on larger scale will aid the project on better understanding the whole concept of couple resiliency and strengthen love languages/relationship quality scale validity. Late adolescents and early adults participated in Study 1 (adjusted number of participants; n = 626) and married participants filled in online survey (n = 259). Two scales were developed to gather data measuring love languages and relationship quality. Results indicated there were differences of love languages between age groups. Relationship assessment showed 73.74% of samples were satisfied/highly satisfied with their marriage. EFA supported construct validity (Eigenvalue 4.47; variance estimate 63.81%) with one factor composing the scale. Its implication will be outlined throughout this paper. Keywords: love languages, relationship quality, descriptive study.
