Has anyone read this? I have already read the 5 love languages and REALLY loved it
My MIL just told me that they have one for military relationships and I am kinda interested in reading it! My only concern is that it will just be the same as the original but with added random senarios like deployments.
For those who have read it was is helpful? Did it seem like the author had an understanding for military relationships? Was is any different than the original?

@Payless: I’ve read the original, and while my FI is no longer in, I wonder if it’s geared toward a specific personality type, or like you say, there are military specific situations…interestingly enough, another former servicemember recommended to FI that he read it!

@Payless: Here are some reviews from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Love-Languages-Military-Edition/product-reviews/0802407692/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1
My expectations when I picked this book up were not great. I expected a shell of the original love languages book with some bolt on additions specific to military culture. I was pleasantly surprised when I began reading and found that this book is a complete reworking with pointed examples and vignettes designed for military families.

@lizzieb: I am so curious! I don’t live anywhere near a book store and I don’t want to buy if it is just going to be cheesy, you know? Hopefully somebody has read it!
