The Five Love Languages
The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate | Gary D Chapman
Marriage should be based on love, right? But does it seem as though you and your spouse are speaking two different languages? #1 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 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!

This book was amazing. Even as someone who isnt married or in a relationship this was a very intresting and eye opening read. I think everyone should read this book. It definitely even helps with figuring out how you yourself feel. Also as someone who was in a relationship with someone who showed me no love language let alone my own I see what people crave and expect from their partners.

Prairiegirl_reading It‘s eye opening for sure. Helped me with my relationship with my mom actually. 3w
NaomiO @Prairiegirl_reading That is great!! 3w

I got so much more out of the book than I did from the online test. However, I wish I had only read halfway. The last 1/4 seemed to veer into making the best of an abusive relationship and that did not sit well. My love language remains the same, and I now better understand the other 4, so glad I read it overall. Don't think I'll look any further though.

There are supplemental materials online that are helpful too.

⭐️⭐️ A friend encouraged me to take the Love Language Test. Being the bookworm that I am, instead of taking the test, I bought the book. I shoulda just taken the test. Not for me. #bookstagram #bookreview

Finally got my #therapy book review of this one done! In short, this is a great book for couples to learn how to show & recieve love in ways to maximize the love felt in a relationship. It‘s become a staple in my work w/ couples. I believe if you feel more loved it‘s easier to work on your relationship.

Lots of hype for this book. I really feel like this would only be helpful if both parties to a relationship read the book- otherwise, you are bearing the brunt of saving the relationship. And then you would resent the other person regardless. It was okay.

It‘s been far too long for me to go without my self-care Thursday. But it‘s finally here! Reading more on the 5 Love Languages to better help me work with couples. It‘s #selfcare meets #professionaldevelopment in #therapy! Yay!

thereadingowlvina I enjoyed all the love languages books. 🤗 1y
QuoteQueen @thereadingowlvina this is my first! Though I‘ve had an idea what it‘s about I‘m really enjoying the book. It reads easy and is understandable. I look forward to sharing it with clients! I also plan to read others, especially the military one. 😊 1y

💙💙💙💙💙I believe this is definitely a must read for couples! This book made for rich discussion. It gave an avenue to talk about what you need from your spouse. This is not typically something couples talk about. My husband knows I love him dearly but to hear the ways in which he feels the most love made me understand him and out relationship better. If you want to sustain your marriage and help your love deepen, then this is the perfect tool!

Your emotional love language and the language of your spouse may be as different as Chinese from English.

I know l'm late, but l like this one 😊

1. My native language is ltalian

2. English is my second language. I studied German but haven't practiced in years. I'm a bit rusty. I can also speak my city's dialect, though not fluently.

3. Today, l'm more likely to buy a book in English than in ltalian. I have a few in German. A couple in Spanish (can't speak it, but very similar to my dialect) and even one in lrish

#HelloThursday

DreesReads What‘s your dialect? I grew up listening to Genoese (Zeneize) but can‘t speak it. 2y
IamIamIam I had a friend who spoke Italian at home but studied Spanish in college. He'd call me and lapse into both Italian and Spanish just to keep me on my toes. I neglected to mention that I spoke neither and only vaguely understood Spanish!!! 6 years of French didn't help those conversations! 🤣 2y
JazzFeathers @AudreyMorris l'm from Verona and Veronese is my dialect 😊 2y
JazzFeathers @IamIamIam 😀 lt's strange how languages can sometimes sound alike. When l lived in Dublin, l worked with many Spanish and lrish kept thinking l was Spanish too because we would understand each other language 😂 2y

This was much better than I had expected. I‘m not sure what I had thought, a typical self help and retail philosophy? It actually is very sound and common sense advice that you can easily comprehend. Much can be easily gleaned from the material. One of the best books on how to have and keep a happy marriage I have had the pleasure to read.

Yes, I read in multiple languages. I read a little in my native language, Norwegian. Most of my reading are in English. And once upon a time I could read children's books in French.

Siannalyn I read usually in two languages, italian (my mothertongue) and english, but if I try hard I can read in a third one too (romanian), but I am too lazy for it, usually! 2y
SpeculativeFemale Just English for me. I probably could manage French if I did a quick refresher course and kept a French to English dictionary nearby for the hard parts, but that's more work than I'm likely to put in anytime soon, LOL. 2y

When your husband knows that books are your love language and brings this home. He refused to give the husband profile section a shot, though. 😆

#dearhusband #TBR #oneday

EchoLogical @Gezemice I'm not sure if I want to read it now. LOL 2y
Gezemice @EchoLogical For me it was about learning that your loved one might not like the same things as you, and you should learn and respect your differences. But it had some dated, offputting parts having to do with gender roles. It is a worthwhile read, though. 2y
EchoLogical @Gezemice Ahh okay. I can see how that would take away from the book. 2y

As someone who is getting married in two months, I felt like this book taught me so much that I wish I had learned sooner. Everyone needs to feel loved - and everyone shoes and receives affection differently. This book helped me discover how to better show my love to my fiancé - and my future husband.

I found this on my hoopla app and thought I'd give it a quick listen. Even if you don't have problems in your marriage or with people in general, it is a fantastic read. Just teaches you to be a nicer person and realizing what keeps yourself and the people around you happy.

josie281 There is a free quiz to see what your love language is on the site too. 3y
Seekingtardis @josie281 I didn't know that! Thanks for the info! 😍😍 3y
LauraBeth The husband and I read this a couple of years ago - and I'll be honest - it really transformed the way we communicate with each other 😀 3y
Seekingtardis @LauraBeth us too. Even in just simple ways, we already understand each other better than we ever have. I thought we already knew all there was to know about each other and that we got along amazingly but now, we keep learning more and it just keeps getting better! 3y
josie281 I recommend retaking the quiz every few years. Mine changed over the past 15 years 3y

You know your husband speaks your love language when he finds 4 bookshelves on Craig's List for you and drives 4 hours round-trip to buy them, then muscles them down the stairs. 2 new shorter bookcases to go along a low wall and 2 tall ones -- and hopefully all the floor stacks of books will be up on shelves. (I doubt that this is one of the languages in Chapman's book, but it works for me)

#17booklove #Day13 Mysterious Love @jess.how

Love is a mysterious thing which every person responds to differently. With this really interesting book readers can learn to hone in on their love language, as well as that of their significant other. What's a love language anyway? A love language is how you best relate and respond to love and affection. Understanding this can seriously impact your relationships for the better. So, check it out! ❤️🙂

LauraBeth My husband and I read this together a couple of years ago and got a lot out of it! We still use what we learned from it ❤😀 3y
