Many married couples can attest that good communication with their spouse is essential to a long and happy marriage while poor communication can quickly tear the relationship apart. Despite best intentions and a loving commitment to their partner, couples can end up feeling disconnected from each other and uncertain how to improve their unhappy situation.
In this valuable tool, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate, Dr. Gary Chapman teaches couples how to better relate to their spouse Drawing from over thirty years of experience as a marriage counselor, Dr. Chapman has identified five love languages—five ways that people communicate and understand emotional love. Couples often find that the euphoric feelings of being "in love" aren't enough to sustain a marriage over the years. In the same way, Dr. Chapman explains, feeling love for your spouse is not enough. Couples must learn to communicate love in a way their partner can understand, using some variation of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.
Dr. Chapman offers a thorough explanation of each love language and how to use it to communicate affection and commitment, all illustrated with real-life examples from his counseling practice. Throughout this book, readers will also find assessment tools to help determine the primary love language of their spouse and identify their own!,
