The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate by Gary Chapman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Dr Gary Chapman observed dozens of couples seeking an answer to the same question: "How can I love and feel loved in a relationship for many years without falling in the trap of dullness?"
Dr Chapman collected the couples' complaints in 5 major categories:
1) words of affirmation
2) quality time
3) receiving gifts
4) acts of service
5) Physical touch
Each one of us needs to be loved to value ourselves as a significant human being. Every one of us has a love tank that needs to be constantly filled by our partner, while we have the duty to fill our partner's love tank.
In order to do so we need to learn what is our primary love language and what is our partner's primary love language.
Dr Chapman's theory has sold millions of books and has been translated in 38 languages since its first edition in 1992.
It's a simple idea with a great feedback in everyday life for any couple who's facing the dangers of quotidian living.
