A big part of improving your relationship with your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend is to sticking with a date night to make sure you have quality time together. Especially if you have children or a high stress occupation. My wife and I have been together for 10 years and got stuck in the rut of an endless routine of doing everything we could for our kids, followed by daily chores and left little time for ourselves. Committing to 1 date night a week has really helped our relationship and improved our communication.
I recommend the book for sure and found it inspiring and worth reading. All couples can benefit from reading this book. The only downside is I wish it could have been a little longer. The stories from the author are interesting and I would have liked to have heard a bunch of his other examples of couples that he has dealt with. It was a short book and my wife and I finished it in 4 or 5 days and that was reading it slowly. The price is easily affordable. I found it best to photo copy the test quiz at the end instead of writing in the book so we can give the book to any family or friends who are struggling with their relationship.
I knew I made the right reading decision when I spent two hours discussing the merits of this book with a dear college friend who is a highly educated relationship counselor. She and her husband revisit this book each year.
Whether a person reads a chapter or the book in its entirety --it WILL change how you interact with others and think about your partner. Religious or non-religious, this book is pertinent for all of humanity. It isn't just for spouses--it will change how one engage their colleagues, children, family members, and friends.
I have taken to asking everyone I know about their love language. if they look at me like a deer in headlights, I direct them to the online test. It is the perfect place to begin.
I found the book to be well-written and an easy read, although there were parts of it that were somewhat redundant... especially toward the end. This is the kind of book that the more you put into it, the more you get. Chapman includes exercises at the end of every chapter to help you put into practice the ideas presented. There are also a number of practical tips strewn throughout the text. I found these tips particularly helpful as my spouse's primary love language is foreign to me.
If you're not familiar with the concept of the five love languages, you owe it to yourself to check out one of Chapman's books. It will transform your relationships with anyone who is important to you... spouse, children, friends, family, co-workers, whomever.
We are one Chapter 6 and we are just taking it slow and trying to put into practice the little things that the book suggests. Overall we are fighting less often, than we did, because now we are starting to understand a point of view different from each others. We are also more likely to understand each other because we know that the other person is trying to understand us. Just like the symbolism of the "love tank being full."
I recommend for any relationship, even if it's smooth. You never know when this information will be able to help you in the future.
