Which Love Language Do You Speak?
Find out how the "The 5 Love Languages" can make or break your marriage.
Have you ever wondered why some married couples seem to thrive, even over the course of a long marriage or in the face of adversity? Or that others seem to bicker constantly, resign themselves to a lifetime of unhappiness or don't make it past the first few years? You might think that it's because the former started out happier, have a "stronger marriage" or know some mysterious secret to happiness.
Dr. Gary Chapman, a marriage counselor with over thirty years of experience counseling struggling couples, doesn't think so. His book, The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, explains how any couple can improve their marriage no matter what state it's in. The key, he explains, is learning to speak each other's unique "love language." Chapman's five languages are:
- Words of Affirmation
- Quality Time
- Gift Giving
- Acts of Service
- Physical Touch
Which love language do you crave from your significant other—and which one does your spouse want you to speak to him or her?
We've selected The 5 Love Languages as our February Book of the Month because—let's face it—some couples just don't feel very loving on Valentine's Day. In fact, many couples don't even feel very loving the other 364 days of the year.
