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.
However, there were two glaring issues I had with this book:
1. The religious, specifically Christian, bent of this book was off-putting for me. I think the 5 languages of love can be applied by anyone regardless of their creed. The paragraph at the end recommending that the reader seek Christ to better understand love revealed the author's limited understanding of love, Christ, and religion in general I felt.
2. This book glazes over the issue of abuse (physical, verbal, emotional) on more than one occasion. I do not agree that a person should stay and try to fix a relationship in which they (and potentially their children) are being physically hurt. Chapman mentions that those whose primary love language is touch have the vulnerability of being physically abused, but barely mentions the need to seek proper counseling or protection. The example of Ann and Glenn in Chapter 12 was especially alarming. I feel there are some relationships that should end for the safety of those involved, but I'm not sure if Chapman agrees.
So read it lightly, enjoy the simple black and white examples of couples whose problems are quickly solved with the help of Mr. Chapman, and use your own common sense when applying his advice.

This book is not just applicable to couples I think this book makes us understand each and every person s language of expressing love ... I've just made the discovery that my mother s primary language of love is acts of service and that was never spoken by me all these years, no wonder she felt unloved..... thanks to my mentor Sir, Healer Baskar who'd advised all his followers to read this book and few others. I would recommend this book to all adults.
Thankyou very much Dr. Chapman
I found this book insightful and helped me step back and consider a different perspective. Core reading for married couples. I’m now intrigued on the other relationships it can apply to.
