My husband and I don’t have problems in my marriage. I stem from parents that did, though. I have been highly worried since we got married that I would fall into the divorce category. He is the love of my life and I would do anything to keep it that way and educate myself on how he receives his love. Interesting read. Taught me a lot about myself, how to communicate, and how to uplift my husband.55
I really like this book as it had so much insight into the different ways that people show their love. These things never occurred to me and it helped me to understand more about myself. Would love to see a seminar!55
This book that I read was absolutely horrendous, The usage of language to describe love is an utter shock and stupidity summed up in one book. The difference between all languages are the styles but not the emotions persevered in this book, this has indeed upset me because I was exited and intrigued by a book like this, I hope that everyone understands the fact that love languages are every languages it is not the accent you say it in it is the words you speak with, saying the same words in a different way will never help you but improving you’re vocabulary to their standards and usage of good words will get you to a point where you will be happy.15
I was recommended this book by a friend, now my counselor. My spouse has mentioned it numerous times trying to reach me, and I paid it no attention. How I wish I had listened, I was almost literally reading my failures with each example of the 5 languages. I’ve shed tears and apologized from the bottom of my heart numerous times. I’ve put the lessons into use and I believe there are signs this storm I am battling is beginning to subside and the sun is coming out. Love is a choice, it takes effort and thought; saying I love you is important...but living it through these lessons might just save the one thing you love the most.55
This is absolutely worth the buy. It helped my relationship with a lot of things I didn’t know how to handle or do. Thank you!55
An excellent book that I think can seriously improve anyone’s relationship and help to better understand eachother.55
I read this book before i got married and it helped really understand my husband and what you was saying recommend reading!55
My girlfriend and I fought constantly for two months and she literally told me that she was going to leave me, but that same day, her sister-in-law told her not to and that we needed to read this book. This book saved my relationship and has made both of us happier. I’ll be forever grateful of the lessons I learned from this book.55
Very simple concept, yet we all seem to miss it. Useful help in finding your SO’s love language and giving ideas as to how to approach different stages/issues in your marriage. The fact that this book seems to default more to, is to make couples realize your initial stages of “falling in love” are not permanent and that marriages take work. The sooner we all learn to accept that and work on it, the better. I believe the author makes really good and get across points as to this. Would recommend this book and it’s lovingly approach to give first as ask second.55
I asked God for a sign before reading this book on how to move forward in my relationship. Somehow i found this book the next day. Read it in one day and i wrote down the questions to ask my spouse.55
