Interestingly enough, DH and I had just started to realize that we werent speaking the right languages with each other and had started to change accordingly. What this book did most of me, aside from reinforcing behaviors that I had recently started, was make me realize that our child speaks a language that neither of us is comfortable with and we seriously need to work on that.
This is a great book to keep forever, but I could not in good consious keep it to myself. This information NEEDS to be shared.
What speaks volumes to you may be meaningless to your spouse/significant other. But here, at last, is the key to understanding each other's unique needs. Apply the right principles, learn the right language,and soon you'll know the profound satisfaction and joy of being able to express your love and feeling truly loved in return.

I discovered this book back in 2001, and it has been life-changing. So life-changing in fact, that I have bought and given a copy of this book to many people in my life. It is such a simple concept, and a very fast read, but very powerful. You can't look at relationships the same way after this book.
This book enhanced every single one of my relationships (friends, family etc). I am looking forward to sharing these ideas with my spouse when I get married. All my friends know how much I live by these 5 love languages. The big lessons I got from reading this are:
1) It helps the people in my life understand me and how I function in relationships. It offers them insight on how to give me love in the best way I can receive it.
2)It provides me with insight on the best way to give love to others, particularly those that don't speak the same language as me.
3) (And this is the biggest lesson of them all) It made me a more open vessel for the love in my life. Because when there is more than one love language, it is possible that someone is giving me the wrong kind, one that doesn't speak to me or fill up my "love tank" at all. This book opened my heart to the different kinds of love out there and helped me to forgive the people who couldn't step out of themselves to give me the type of love I need. Perhaps their language is the only one they know.
Great read for everyone! Regardless of your favorite genres, everyone should have this book on their bookshelf.
