The Five Love Languages

by Gary Chapman


Preview


In the modern-day world, it is not uncommon for people to have multiple relationships, marriages, and divorces. That’s why now, more than ever, it is important for people to learn the five love languages: words of affirmation, quality time, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. When a person knows their partner’s love language and can implement it into the relationship, it will make their partner feel loved and appreciated to help create a stronger and more understanding bond.
