Unhappiness in marriage often has a simple root cause: we speak different love languages, believes Dr. Gary Chapman. While working as a marriage counselor for more than 30 years, he identified five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. In a friendly, often humorous style, he unpacks each one. Some husbands or wives may crave focused attention; another needs regular praise. Gifts are highly important to one spouse, while another sees fixing a leaky faucet, ironing a shirt, or cooking a meal as filling their "love tank." Some partners might find physical touch makes them feel valued: holding hands, giving back rubs, and sexual contact. Chapman illustrates each love language with real-life examples from his counseling practice.
How do you discover your spouses and your own love language? Chapmans short questionnaires are one of several ways to find out. Throughout the book, he also includes application questions that can be answered more extensively in the beautifully detailed companion leather journal (an exclusive Amazon.com set). Each section of the journal corresponds with a chapter from the book, offering opportunities for deeper reflection on your marriage.
Although some readers may find choosing to love a spouse that they no longer even like hoping the feelings of affection will follow later a difficult concept to swallow, Chapman promises that the results will be worth the effort. "Love is a choice," says Chapman. "And either partner can start the process today." --Cindy Crosby.

''Whether your marriage needs a tune-up or a major overhaul, these are powerful prescriptions delivered by a genial, wise man.'' --AudioFile --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

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 took the quiz associated with the book to affirm what I'd cone to suspect about my own love language. As it turns out, I was only half right. I'm hoping this idea is as revolutionary as it seems. That is, when read by me, it seems great. The big question: will this provide needed insight for someone I hold dear?
That, friends, is what will tell me if this book really is as well worth your time and money as it appears.
Wow! I wasn't really sure what I was expecting, but this book explained things in a way that really made sense.
Some of it seemed to me to be a bit redundant, but informational none-the-less.
After explaining what a love language and a love tank are, the last portion of the book has two different quizzes...
One for the guys, and one for the girls... taking the test, gives you an idea of what your personal love language might be...
I say might be, because I have one love language that I scored an 11, and two that are tied for second place, with a 10...
Now, the author did say it is very feasible to have one main language, and a secondary language that you "Speak"...
but he didn't say anything about having TWO secondary languages...
I can see buying this book again, definitely to give as gifts...
