5-Love-Languages

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. (Courtesy of goodreads.com)

Can the human emotion of love really be distilled down into a formula that can be followed to create love? Gary Chapman has analyzed love and done this very thing.

So many people talk about falling in love, or out of love as if they have nothing to do with the process, almost as if love is a disease. (The fictional ya book , Delirium, says that love is a disease.) In fact, each of us make choices daily that either increase the love we have for our spouse, children and friends or choices that daily decrease that love. The choice to love another human being is one of the most complimentary, affirming statements we can make that that person is worthy of being loved.

Each one of us should like to feel love in multiple ways, but Chapman’s theory is that each of us have a primary love language. In other words, that we like to be loved the most in a particular way.

The 5 love languages are:1- Words of Affirmation
2- Quality Time
3- Receiving Gifts
4- Acts of Service
5- Physical Touch

If I could give two books to all couples getting married I would give them The 5 Love Languages and The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey. I feel that these two books are valuable resources that could save marriages.
