APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Gary Chapman's groundbreaking book has a simple message: Expressing love is vital for the health of any relationship, but saying "I love you" doesn’t always cut it. He uses real-life examples to illustrate his five "love languages" (sharing quality time, exchanging gifts, acting selflessly, touching, and using affirmative language) and lays out exercises for couples to figure out which ones they speak. The result? An easy and satisfying roadmap toward mutual understanding.

A Must Read If You Want to Be A Better Spouse
I was recommended this book by a friend, now my counselor. My spouse has mentioned it numerous times trying to reach me, and I paid it no attention. How I wish I had listened, I was almost literally reading my failures with each example of the 5 languages. I’ve shed tears and apologized from the bottom of my heart numerous times. I’ve put the lessons into use and I believe there are signs this storm I am battling is beginning to subside and the sun is coming out. Love is a choice, it takes effort and thought; saying I love you is important...but living it through these lessons might just save the one thing you love the most.
This is absolutely worth the buy. It helped my relationship with a lot of things I didn’t know how to handle or do. Thank you!
Would recommend to anyone trying to better their relationship
