Languages don’t always come in words, but rather in actions. The Five Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts deals with retaining and improving relationships, gauged through a “love tank”. Counselor, speaker, and author Gary Chapman wrote this book, showing how the name-sake five love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch, are used to show and receive love, filling said love tank. Also presented are solutions to solving marital problems through good communication and learning your lover’s love language. It contains tips to appeal to a specific love language and specific cases.
While this book focuses on broken marriages and couples, the love languages and solutions can be used in relation to platonic and family relationships as well. This isn’t Gary Chapman’s only book on love languages. He has books for singles, raising children, and special cases like military spouses.
