Say something about yourself!
The information in this book is very helpful if you are willing to accept the possibility that your behavior could use a little fine-tuning, and if you are willing to follow the advice in the book. The information contained in the book is nothing exceptionally profound, and that's exactly why I was surprised by how well it works when applied to everyday situations. This book is definitely worth a listen for those who think they are being the best marriage partners they can be - you might just find out, as I did, that you're not.
I enjoyed listening to this and was able to
The most memorable thing about this audiobook is the
Chapman is a counselor so I didn't expect him to change voices for each story so I wasn't disappointed when he didn't.
I wanted to listen to this in one sitting but there's so much to take in and think about that I found it better to stop after each example and try to absorb the information.
Absolutely. It is well worth listening to again and again. It will keep you connected to your loved ones love language and reconnect you when months or years pass and you have a tendency to let the stess and struggles of life cause you to drift away.
It is extremely interesting to actually learn you and your loved ones love language. I enjoyed the stories of other couples and could compare them to my own.
How to figure out my loved ones love language.
I highly recommend this book to all relationships. I believe it is an excellent wedding gift.
Because it's logic is truth in every capacity
Yes. Not preachy.
Yes when he told his story of almost ending his marriage
Being able to relate to what is being said
There are many lessons to be learned. Hope that the youger generation reads and learns these lessons. The Baby Boomers didn't have these insights, wish we had.
This is a great book. It's information is very usefull and well delivered. Very powerful discussion on the basis and reality of what is love.
My husband and I listened to the love languages and figured which one was ours. We have been loving each other in our own language and it has been great!
this book have a very practical way to look at love. the takeaways from the book are two major things:
1. love is a choice. the in-love feeling you have in the beginning is not real, just chemistry. after that leaves (and it always does) is when the real love starts. the real love is hard work. it is a conscious decision to show your partner that you love them. that is not always easy to do, but the work you put in will come back to you when your partner responds by putting in the work to show you that he or she loves you back.
2. everybody feels loved in a different way. Dr Chapman breaks it down into 5 ways. if your spouse feels loved when you express your love in one of these ways (or a variant). you feel loved when your spouse expresses their love in a certain way. your way and your spouce's way may not be the same.
if you can use the knowledge from #2 to apply #1, you will be on your way to a happy relationship :)
This is great wisdom. I finally understood why I could never survive on long distance relationships, even if not that long of a distance. I learned that my primary love language is quality time and I now understand why my love tank seemed to constantly be close to empty and I seemed to constantly feel frustrated. Great tool to learn and understand more about yourself and your partner and align on love languages/needs of each one.
