Are you and your spouse speaking the same language? While love is a many splendored thing, it is sometimes a very confusing thing, too. As people come in all varieties, shapes, and sizes, so do their choices of personal expressions of love. But more often than not, the giver and the receiver express love in different ways. This can lead to misunderstanding, quarrels, and even divorce.

Quality time, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch are the five basic love languages. Dr. Gary Chapman identifies these and guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. Couples who understand each other’s love language hold a priceless advantage in the quest for love that lasts a lifetime—they know how to effectively and consistently make each other feel truly and deeply loved. That gift never fades away.

Learn to speak and understand your mate’s love language. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Chapman’s thoughtful, youthful sounding voice offers these insights not as the Five Commandments of Marriage but as suggestions he hopes will be helpful. He provides humble examples from his counseling practice, which illuminate his ideas and give a human, down-to-earth quality to the lesson. Without making light of the work a marriage requires, he’ll convince most listeners that with just a little planning and effort they can make a good marriage great and a broken partnership truly satisfying again.”

  • “This isn’t the first book to point out that what communicates love to you might not mean a thing to your mate. But Gary Chapman says it the most clearly, and most convincingly. His well-defined languages explain why so many well-meaning spouses find expressions of love so frustrating.”
