The Secret to Love that Lasts


I read a book called the 5 love languages a few years ago that really helped Chelsea and I to strengthen our relationship.

Dr. Gary Chapman was working as a marriage counselor for more than 30 years and started to notice patterns. He noticed how everyone shows and receives love in a different way. He also noticed that problems often start when one person feels their partner is not showing them love – while the other partner is confused thinking they are. It’s a miscommunication issue. For example you may buy your partner a gift, yet your partner doesn’t value gifts. What they really want is a hug or maybe to be told sincerely that you love them.

Dr Chapman discovered 5 love languages:

1. Touch
2. Gifts
3. Time
4. Words
5. Service

How do you find your partners primary love language? You ask them.

…and for all the guys that would never pick up this book, you’re welcome.
