Every single example featured a husband/breadwinner and wife/homemaker ( who sometimes worked outside the home) couple.

Since the husband had no interest in seeking marriage counseling, the author/marriage counselor devised a unilateral plan he admitted did n't know would work.

his plan basically suggested, among other things, that the wife initiate sex with her usband ( as his love language was physical touch) even though this idea did not appeal to the father.

all me cynical, but I picture an abused spouse ( view spoiler) [ emotional or physical, it makes no difference to me ( hide spoiler) ] reading this and thinking that I just eed to have sex with my wif and maybe things will work out.

The author only cited success stories and provided no useful examples of how this love language thing can go wrong.

Overall, I want he dea of love languages seems reasonable, but I was sorely disappointed in the examples and approaches suggested by the poe.

This notion of loving others the way they wan to be loved might feel counterintuitive, but it something so essential to growing as a person and understanding what love really is.I had always known about this nove and the love languages, but tha was the last time I ctually read it.

women, it 's about the way people receive love.The basis is there are 5 Love Languages ( obviously).

By reading another nove, I new what mine was, but the survey pinpointed it to a T and helped me rank mine by importance, even wors than I think I mus have done on my own.

It helps you understand how to show your love for someone else in th way that they 'll best receive it.

tha ook is a tool through which the author, gary chapman, can play out his jesus-complex disguised as a relationship self-help book.

there are eferences from the bible throughout almost every chapter and gary likes to include generous praise from his clients who call him a " miracle worker. " it 's damn-near pretty close to being called god.the book has all the hallmarks of a bestseller: easy to read ( i read it in one day); hopeless circumstances that seem beyond repair; and an uplifiting ending.

he more bestsellers i read, the les i realize that the formula for mainstream media is n't just used in music and movies, it 's used in books, too.

and while hope is n't bad at all, thi book lacks in addressing the complexity of relationships as well as the diversity of relationships in today 's world.

it 's quite apparent that this ook is intende for hetero-white-christian-monogamous couples.but the one major caveat of this memoi that is n't to much a caveat as a poorly disguised advocate of misogyny, is the case of a ma who has been abused ( what type of abuse has been perpetrated is n't made explicit and gary 's reluctance to do so makes me suspicious of how the church deals with issues of domestic violence).

there 's a little section where gary talks about the gender differences in sexual desire.

and gary makes women seem like fucking prudes from the latest harlequin romance, the christian edition.

Count ‘ em, Five! What was that number again? So, that number is five, right? Stop dragging this out in order to post “ five ” gifs.According to Dr. Chapman, the five languages are: Now, I ’ m done.1) Giving gifts – If the ast time you gave your wife flowers was when Nirvana was a thing, then th one isn ’ t you.2) Words of affirmation – These don ’ t include: “ You ’ re an idiot/moron/devil/shrew/succubus etc. ” 3) Acts of Service or doing stuff for your loved one or something – Helping my wife bury the hoochies that chase after our son qualifies here.4) Quality time – It ’ s not me, me, me.

aybe your wife, wants to hang with you and do stuff, like, I don ’ t expec, talk…5) Physical touch – It ’ s actuall only smexy times, but just being there, being present.Note to wife: Please treat every day like my birthday!
