Learning that their are different ways to love one another
finding out exactly what my language is............and his, and learning to use it
other couples experiences
yes, that many many times the euphoria of new love is expected to last forever.........and thats just not the case.
Learning that is HUGE
I loved learning first off my own love language.......and also was refreshed to know that I could make a change within myself, just knowing the words that identify my interaction with others. I am 61 and still ready to receive knowledge that will improve upon my respect for others. Such a wonderful Blessing....
if it does not actually work, the topics will go along way in helping to improve. just review from time to time to remind yourself and stay on track....off to get 5 love languages for KIDS :)
The content has been very helpful, I just had a hard time getting past the author's Alabama accent. I know, that's shallow, but I imitated how he pronounces
A bit oversimplified but I found the basic concepts intriguing. Who couldn't use help to love
the people in their lives better and in way that the other person feels that love. I have two newly married sons and plan to buy them the paperback of this book. If it even helps a little in their relationships, possibly saving them years of trying to figure this out on their own, it is definitely worth a listen/read.
i couldn't get through 15 minutes before the book started in with God's plan. It was not expected, since none of the reviews mentioned that this is a religious text. i feel a bit duped about the book, but i am glad i got it for a discounted price.

Religion play no part in my relationship with my husband, so the general tone of the book is 'off' for us.
So elementary .. I can't believe I have listened to the whole thing. If you already know a thing or tow about life you don't need this book. If you are a teenager maybe you'll hear something new..

If you have children or a relationship that matters to you, listen to this book.
I don't like self help books. This was practical and useful. Easy to understand and put into practice in a realistic manner.
The stories were all something I could relate to.
I consider this one of the best pieces of advice on relationships I have ever read. Not just for marriages. Works for kids and co-workers, friends and family. Actually useful and amazingly simple. Won't fix everything but it will surely enhance any relationship.
This is a very interesting look at how different people perceive love, and in turn how to show affection towards those people differently. I will be getting married next year and am so glad I read it now as a way to build a solid foundation in our relationship. I also believe that this book would be very useful who has been facing problems in their relationship, or even just looking to improve a 25 year marriage. Even if you don't ascribe to everything the author has to say, it is absolutely worth listening to at least once
I enjoyed the author, with warm friendly souther accent, reading the story.
Specific examples of couples with issues.
His accent, cadence was very warm and informal, suited topic well.
No, needed time to absorb what was being discussed.
