I love love love that book!!! I have applied it to other relationships as well such as with friends and parents. It’s pretty easy to figure out someone’s love language.

I think Darling Husband and I must have clicked early on because we have the same love language, but different secondary languages.

I’ve been thinking about getting that book!  Thanks for the review!  Did it take long to read?

I just started reading this book. I haven’t gotten very far yet so I’ve not read about the specific love languages yet. The book came highly recommended. I’m looking forward to really diving into it and seeing what I can learn!

I’m reading it now. I really like the part about how everyone has a love-tank that needs to be filled. For me, I need technology-free quality time with Darling Husband. Often, we’re both very into our computers, him especially (video games) and even if we’re in the same room together, we don’t pay much attention to each other. I found myself getting resentful of his video games, so we made a rule that twice a week we turn everything off and just focus on each other.

I LOVE this book. I’m still trying to convince Darling Husband to read it..he’s not a reader.

This book should seriously be require reading. So spot on and it was a real eye-opener for me.

Hm, I don’t think the quiz was very accurate for me, since I have a feeling I take FI’s acts of service for granted because he’s more of the cook and cleaner than I am, lol. But I definitely want to read this book at some point, if I ever have time.

ETA: Also, I just went through the husband’s quiz because I was curious, and there are quite a few different questions from the wife’s quiz… but since I think Fiance and don’t fit the stereotypical gender roles in our relationship it really affects the results… anyone else notice this? Just curious.

Fiance and I did a sunday school class for about 8 weeks with this as the lessons.  The class was for “married” couples, but we did long before we were engaged.  The quiz was pretty accurate and revealed Fiance and I’s biggest miscommunication issue…we have different love languages! As a PP said, I’m not usuall into these self-help type things, but this was highly recommended by several people so we did it and we are glad we did.  The biggest thing we learned other than our love languages was the “love tank”…full or empty. On occasion, we still use that to express our feelings and what we need from the other person.  I think this is a great book, and I’d do it a second time for sure!

I have read this book, as has Fiance, both long before we met each other. It should be a required read as should his other book the five languages of apology. The latter book helped me in every relationship.
