Has anyone ever heard of this?

I took a seminar called the five love languages a couple of weeks back and i received a book called "The 5 Love languages The Secret to Love that lasts" by Gary Chapman. And at first i was real skeptical about how this was gonna work. I was open to it but i didn't think that DH would be. But i have to say that i have noticed a HUGE change in our relationship. So i was wondering if anyone else has heard of this and maybe want to share wether or not it has been working for them?

  • Ms. Gwen, basically, it is all about the 5 love languages of people. Words of Affirmation (you would rather be told how you are doing a great job, etc.), Quality Time (would rather spend time with him), Receiving Gifts (would rather get a nice, thoughtful gift), Acts of Service (would rather him go and do some housework), and Physical Touch (not just about sex, like being touched, caressed, etc., and in more than just a sexual way).

    Basic summaries of each. There is a website too. Just google the book's name.

  • My husband and I took it at a local church right after we got married! It was wonderful! We ended up going to a Christian bookstore and getting another book to help our new marriage! We are still very much in love today!

  • My family doctor literally prescribed the book to me two days ago! I've never heard of it before. Can you sum up the thesis for me at all? What's it about?

  • Very awesome book. Read it back in college to find out what my love language is (Gifts). Had to pick it up when it was on sale at Waldenbooks' going out of business sale. LOVE it!
