The Five Love Languages (English) Paperback - 2001
The Five Love Languages by America's celebrated author Dr. Gary Chapman, has helped many couples in healing their relationships since it first came out in 1995. In The Five Love Languages, the author states that people receive and express love in one of five ways. What he calls the 5 languages of love are quality-time, acts of service, physical touch, words of affirmations and receiving gifts. While all these 5 are expressions of love, one specific act is more relevant to each person than all the others. That would be an individual's preferred language of love.
Most people instinctively express love in a way that is most relevant to them. According to Dr. Gary Chapman, it is important to express your feelings to your partner in a way that can be reciprocated. That is to say both partners need to understand and learn to speak each other's language of love. This then would be the basis for a long, happy marriage and a healthy partnership.
