There are so many marriages that are just getting along but has lost the zing. I am a pastor and highly recommend this book to every married couple. Many people get along great during dating and then the honeymoon period, but then something seems to happen. Dr. Chapman takes us past the romance stage to show how to speak a love language to your mate. What one thing can your partner say or do that definitely shows that they love you. This helps show what your love language is, but is your partner consistently doing this. Our upbringing and influences often develop our love language...not every girl desires flowers or chocolates as the "I Love You" language. Do you know what your mate is desiring of you?
This book is a helpful guide for people interested in understanding how to improve relationships. Although it is specifically written for couples, the basic lessons of this text can be applied to other relationships, as well. Regardless of a person's relationship status, EVERYONE should read this book at least once. Before, during, and even after a relationship has ended, having insight about fundamental communication patterns makes an important difference.
I read this book on our first wedding anniversary vacation. This book revealed what I had suspected about my wife from the start. We took the quiz together and enjoyed the results. I recommend for everyone.
Dr. Chapman helps to open readers eyes to see not only what they need to know how to please their spouse, but also see what they need to know about themselves in order to change unhealthy patterns into healthy ones.
I really enjoyed this book & believe if the advise is put into practice a lot of heart ache could be avoided!
It makes a lot of sense to me & it works.
I like to re listen to this from time to time to refresh my memory about the different ways that people feel loved. Very helpful in understanding other people.
This book was so logical yet so powerful! I've just 'read' it for the first time so I haven't enacted any of the suggestions but I feel like I have SO much new understanding. It makes so much sense and I now have many new insights about not only my husband but my kids, extended family and even friends. The lessons in this book can really make a difference in any walk of life. I would highly recommend this book to absolutely anyone.
One of the best books I ever read in my life wish I read it years ago dont go past this one even if it costs you $1000 its cheap!!!
