I always thought that I was a caring and loving person, and I didn't understand why my husband felt so unappreciated and unloved. My marriage is in desperate need of CPR, and we have been seperated for six months with no contact at all. I don't know if this book or if learning my husbands love language will save my marriage, but I do know that it has changed who I am, and how I approach all of my relationships, including the one with my child. I now try to express all love languages to my child, so he feels loved, and will hopefully grow to be an emotionally mature adult, and will be able to express his love to someone. I wish I would have learned this earlier in life. I am terrified that I have learned this lesson too late in life and that I may have lost my husband forever.
Everyone should read this book.
The book and the five languages of love gave me a different outlook on expressing love. Having been recently married, it gave me a lot of insight in communicating and receiving love.
Maybe a little drawn out, but the meat of the book is great. I'm looking forward to reading the 5 Love Languages of Children. The author/ narrator does a great job of providing examples.
Great book to help couple understand each other. Improve couples communications. Learn your love language and your spouse love language. The never ending honeymoon!!!!!
Dr. Chapman takes the common concept of 'Women are from Venus, Men are from Mars' and shatters it. He made loving my spouse understandable. If you don't understand this book then I suggest you're in deep trouble! Dr. Chapman, I can't thank you enough!
I love reading books, but I dont have time because I am a working mum .. I used to feel guilty I dont read till I tried audio books .. I didnt think I will like it so I tried the free book ... I loved it ... I can play the book in the car and while I am waiting for the kids in the club and during traveling long distances .. anywhere with my earphones I am reading (listening to) the book ... if I miss a part I replay it .. really excellent ... the book itself is beautiful. I could understand things I didnt know about my husband. he heard 2 chapters while we were travelling in the car, and many things changed. I understand him better and he is now trying to do what I want to please me using my love language . I could also understand that his love language was words of affirmation not only physical touch so this is changing as well. I will replay it again and again till I am completely comfortable I understood it all well. great book for spouses who have difficulties in their relationships.
