    How would you best express your love to your spouse - through actions, words, or silence?

    all of the above. it takes more then just one thing to show love. it has to be from the mind and body, from the heart and from every day things.

    I think it is not universal. You know your spouse better than anyone (I suppose!), you should try what works best.

    All of the above; great effort goes into great relationships.

    Actions are important, but I think, too often, if nobody puts it into words, the other two things can be interpreted as something else (or not interpreted at all). Silence?  I don't really get where that comes in, unless you mean recognizing when your "honey" doesn't feel like talking and respecting that.   hmm

    If someone happens to think silence is a form of expressing love, he'd better make sure he explains that to his spouse; because silence is actually one of the behaviors that can fall under the category of "psychological abuse".   hmm

    To people who hate "cornball stuff", my apologies; but I can't resist this:

    Actions and words mostly. When to be silent in a relationship is foreign to me. Not very good with that.

    I believe the adage , actions speak louder than words.

    The best way to express your love in a close emotional relationship is through learning how to listen for and meet core-relationship needs. The specific blending of listening, actions, words or silence is as individual as the person whose relationship defining needs must be met. Both partners must reciprocate in this process continuously in their own unique tango dance.

    I would express by words and actions both as both complement each other.

    People are recognized by their deeds, not words.
    However, kind words are always welcome.
    Silence is not good.
    Replace it with sharing and laughter.

    actions and words. never silence. silence is in a relationship is like forgetting to water your plants. do you want to kill your relationship? better to express how you feel smile

    I would say: through listening. You can also call it silence

    All of the above, you should say what you feel; but make it believable through actions, and when all that is implicit just one look at him/her in complete silence will do the work. But they must all be constant. Words are just words, actions speak louder than them. It's not enough to just say I love you all the time if you don't demonstrate it.
