Reader's Thoughts


I very much liked this book. It helped me find new ways to show love to my wife. I saw instant results by applying what I had learned from the book in my relationships with not just my wife but my whole family.


Chapman has written different versions of the Five Love Languages, and this book is specially written for any husband who want to improve their relationship with their wife. Whether you are getting married or already in a marriage for several years, I strongly believe this book will improve your relationship with your wife.


Married people who don't feel "in love" anymore will greatly benefit from reading this book. Seriously, if your marriage is struggling, it wouldn't hurt to read it. You'll better understand your spouse and yourself.


The book contains many great examples. This will make a difference in how well you understand the needs of those in your life.


This book was pretty eye opening in the way we express our love to each other and how one person may be thinking they are expressing it but the other person still feels unloved. I really saw how I was lacking and why Kelly would get mad at me at times. It just is a completely different way of looking at this type of thing. I would recommend this to any person or couple who feels they are not being heard or loved. The other person might be trying to say I love you but you just can’t hear it.

This is a brilliant book, great for any couple, married or not yet married. It will help you show love to your partner in a way that they will understand it. It is aimed at married couples, but I am glad that I have read this before I am married so that the transition from the 'in love' state to the 'love' state will be an easy transition. Would defiantly recommend.


My mother-in-law gave me this book. Good thing they have a men's edition that is not purple! I might not have ever opened the cover! I am very glad that I did. Great book for anyone in a relationship! This should be required reading for every student before they graduate high school.


Some interesting concepts that can be applied to all sorts of relationships. I found the anecdotes too good to be true, but they got the point across so it all worked. I think that this book can be a big help to anyone, regardless of where he is in his relationship.


I know what you're thinking... "Meg, are you, in fact... a MAN???" Nope. My brother-in-law just handed me a copy of his book (the "Men's Edition") a few weeks ago and told me to read it, that it would probably improve my marriage and understanding of my husband. And it did! It's a great book, and Chapman’s a genius. My main issue with it was redundancy. There doesn't need to be a whole book about this theory (much less several), the following paragraph would suffice:There are five major ways that people prefer to be loved: QUALITY TIME (going on a walk, having a meaningful conversation, enjoying an activity together, etc.), WORDS OF AFFIRMATION (vocally expressing an interest in them and their opinions, asking advice, giving compliments, etc.), RECEIVING GIFTS (bringing home flowers, picking up a little something "just because you were thinking of him/her," homemade presents and cards, etc.), ACTS OF SERVICE (washing the dishes or doing laundry for them, helping them with a project, going grocery shopping so they don't have to, etc.), and PHYSICAL TOUCH (holding hands, giving massages, play fighting, sex... but not JUST sex... everybody loves sex. Well, let me rephrase that, everyone WHO REGULARLY HAS AN ORGASM loves sex... but Chapman didn't say that, it's just my opinion--disregard it as part of this review). So there they are, the five love languages. Figure out which one is your partner's (hint: it'll be the one he or she is always nagging that you "never do"), then go out of your way to show love the way they WANT to be loved, not the way you want to love them.There it is, in a nutshell. It's an amazing theory that I think is mostly true and will work wonders in relationships. The book itself tends to make its point OVER AND OVER again... but now that you've read my paragraph, you won't need to invest the time!You're welcome.I hope Chapman doesn't sue me.


As much as the original 5 love languages was vague in many ways, this one makes more sense... it has more hands-on examples and underlines in a way that is UNDERSTANDABLE the differences between love (action) and love (in-love) and where to go from there.

Pretty good. I've heard the 5 love languages theory before, and the book really didn't add all that much to the 5-minute summary your friends tell you. But whether you read the book or not, it's a valuable exercise to figure out a spouse's love languages.

Excellent book on understanding the fundamentals of how to engage with your spouse and foster love beyond the early blissful couple years. The book outlines how people are wired differently and we make the mistake of treating others the way we'd like to be treated. What fills your "love bucket" isn't what necessarily fills your spouse's. First step is understanding what your spouse's primary love language is. There are five: touch, words of affirmation, gifts, spending time, and acts of service. The book is outlined with exercises to help you understand your spouse's love language as well as gain a deeper understanding of your own primary love language. When you know what fills your own love bucket, you tell your spouse.


I found great insight through this book. Funny that it only took 24 1/2 years for me to nail down my wife's love language. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their marriage.


Understanding and putting into practice the love languages concept is, I feel, essential. Reading this is a good starting place for a man to help understand how to show love to his wife.

I wouldn't spring for this rather than buying the base book. The topical editing is haphazard at best. You could have paid me $5k to do a better job of the reframing than whoever did this did.
