It has literally become one of my favourite books and I constantly recommend it to others. Many friends have shared how communication in their own marriage or families have improved immensely and have been so grateful I told them about it. It makes SO much sense. It puts into words what I had been feeling but couldn't express verbally to even myself let alone anyone else, when I first read it. My kids understand these concepts now which I hope will help them hugely in their relationships. If all couples were equipped with this knowledge at the beginning of their relationship, I believe there really would be less divorce in the world and more communication and unity. Understanding the 5 Love Languages now moving forward has been a blessing. You can apply these concepts to help understand anyone - spouses, partners, kids, teens, work colleagues. I will continue to advocate this book - thankyou for writing it Gary Chapman.

Also, the book reads like it’s written for white Christians. And for men who don’t want a partnership, but rather want to coerce their wife into being their sexually subservient housemaid/servant because they just don’t like vacuuming and can‘t afford hiring a cleaner („I thought I get myself a wife for that“).
So if you’re a white Christian man or woman who likes to be a little housewife, yes, this book‘s for you.
Besides that, the book offers solid scientific facts such as man‘s sex drive being dominated biologically by sperm pressure; that women‘s sex drive is purely emotional and not driven by their bodies; and more.
A friend recommended this to me. I shan't reveal why he'd come to read the book, needless to say he spoke very highly of it. He was right, it is genuinely life changing. The way you think about everyone (not only your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, but your friends, children, parents, the lot!) can be altered dramatically if you give it a chance. It's aimed at helping you improve your marriage, but in my opinion it does that and much more besides.
It should be entitled - "Everything your parents didn't teach to in preparation for life - because they didn't know it either".
It's not perfect; the author is clearly a) American and b) a devout Christian. He mentions the American Dream and Church attendance more than once in the book. You have to accept this if you are neither of the above, foibles and all. It's repetitive in places too (deliberately, I'd guess) and slightly pious, verging on self congratulatory at times (it IS written by an America don't forget) but none of this should detract from an incredible read.
Whether all of the content is the author's own work or whether they've simply amalgamated a collection of other people's thoughts and theories to form their own, I neither know nor care. The ideas are presented in a highly digestible and practical form which will provoke thought and good nature in all but the most cynical reader.
If nothing else, it's such good value that you've nothing to lose but a few hours of your life, with everything to gain if you approach the content with an open mind.
Try it, you'll not be sorry. Read it, remember it, live by it and teach it to your children.
It made me understand better the things that were working reasonably well already and pin pointed the things that needed some attention. Encourage the important people in your life to read it too and life might take on a brighter look.
You would be better served by googling the 5 love languages, considering them for a second, then moving on to better things.
His evidence is literally "a couple came to me and the woman said she needed more physical intimacy, so physical intimacy is a love language". Repeat this another 4 times. That is the book.
There are other, evidence-based relationship books out there. Read those.
It is short book, very practical and an easy read. When my kids announce they are in a long term relationship I will insist that both they and their partner both read this book. As there will be an exam :-)
If you are considering buying this book...Do it!
