A wedding gift from my sister, who claimed it was a "must-read" for everyone married. I have to admit, it was probably the most important book I've read in many years, as it teaches you how to make a marriage successful again after you've "fallen out of love." Fortunately, I read it while I was still in the fairytale "in love" phase (which fortunately I'm still in) so that I'm not disillusioned when humdrum reality sets in, which is inevitable.

Chapman has identified that we all have a different way of expressing love and different ways that we prefer to receive love. If your "love language" does not match up with your partner, you're in for some trouble. Identifying your "love language" (and your partner's) allows you to communicate effectively what you need, and what you need to do for your partner, to "keep the love tank filled". Sounds corny, totally. But I found it very insightful and true. ( )

Want to make a bad marriage good? A good marriage very good? A very good marriage great? Wanna go straight from bad to great? Read this book, preferably in tandem with your mate, absorb the information, and it most likely will net the results you want. I promise. This book is worth its salt. ( )

What's the deal with having to choose a PRIMARY love language? I like them all, I think my primary love language is all 5 categories. I'm either very easy to please or very high maintenance--I haven't decided which. ( )

This was actually a pretty good book. A few other couples have recommended it to my fiance so in the last month we have both read it and learned each other's love language. I will now recommend it to other couples, happy or not, just to help you learn the easiest way to your other half's heart. ( )

My husband and I read this book before we got married (STRONGLY recommended by a Chaplain). I read it first and wrote notes in the margin for my husband, and then he read it and added his thoughts too. The theory makes sense and is useful, even if it is one of many different perspectives on relationships. ( )

Marriage should be based on love, right? But does it seem as though you and your spouse are speaking two different languages? New York Times bestselling author Dr. Gary Chapman guides couples in identifying, understanding, and speaking their spouse’s primary love language—quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or physical touch.

By learning the five love languages, you and your spouse will discover your unique love languages and learn practical steps in truly loving each other. Chapters are categorized by love language for easy reference, and each one ends with specific, simple steps to express a specific language to your spouse and guide your marriage in the right direction. A newly designed love languages assessment will help you understand and strengthen your relationship. You can build a lasting, loving marriage together.

Gary Chapman hosts a nationally syndicated daily radio program called A Love Language Minute that can be heard on more than 150 radio stations as well as the weekly syndicated program Building Relationships with Gary Chapman, which can both be heard on fivelovelanguages.com.

The Five Love Languages is a consistent new York Times bestseller - with over 5 million copies sold and translated into 38 languages.  This book is a sales phenomenon, with each year outselling the prior for 16 years running!

Includes a promotional code to gain exclusive online access to the new comprehensive love languages assessment.
