Palabras de afirmación. Obsequios. Actos de servicio. Contacto físico. Lo que para ti dice mil cosas, podría ser un gesto sin sentido para tu pareja. Pero aquí, por fin, está la clave para comprender las necesidades únicas de nuestra otra mitad. Aplica los principios correctos, aprende el idioma adecuado y pronto conocerás la profunda satisfacción y el placer de expresar tu amor… y sentirte realmente correspondido.

Are you and your spouse speaking the same language? While love may be a many-splendored thing, it is sometimes a very confusing thing, too. And as people come in all varieties, shapes, and sizes, so do their choices of personal expressions of love. But, more often than not, the giver and the receiver express love in two different ways. This can lead to misunderstanding, quarrels, and even divorce.

Dr. Gary Chapman identifies five basic languages of love: quality time, words of affirmation, receiving gifts, acts of service, and physical touch. He then guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique languages of love. Learn to speak and understand your mate’s love language, and in no time you will be able to effectively love and truly feel loved in return. Skillful communication is within your grasp!

    While his basic premise is true (we want to love people in a way which communicates love to them), his underlying psychology is unbiblical and ultimately fails to get at the heart of people’s problems. Loving people in the way they want to be loved may “work,” but it also may only enforce their selfish desires. If my “love language” leads me to sin, it has become an inordinate desire, an “over-desire” which I have placed above God. Sometimes our desire to be loved in a certain way needs to be lovingly challenged, not appeased.

    This book is part of my collection that really focuses in on Biblical Commentary more than anything else (including some well known authors in the theological world). All of these books haven't been read cover to cover, but I've spent a lot of time with them and they've been helpful in guiding me through difficult passages (or if I desire to dig deeper).

    Rings mostly true and seems useful. Could do without the Jesus stuff.

    I was recommended this book a while ago while I was deep in depression and thought my relationship was on the outs. I didn't get a chance to read this book then, and I can say that I would have made things quite easier for me. I'm past all that now, but it was still a great book to read and gave me some great insight into myself and my relationship.The five love languages are basically 5 ways that people express and understand love. The way Mr. Chapman describes it (and what really made the concept click for me) is that it's just like speaking language. If you're raised in a home that speaks English you learn English and that is your primary language. You can learn to speak another language, but you'll be most fluent in your primary language. The love languages are the same way.Understanding the different languages is really quite simple. The explanation behind the different languages is very easy to understand. As soon as I'd read about one of the languages I would associate that language to someone I know. Having a "real-life" example for each language helped me understand that language a little bit better. It was easy for me to pinpoint other people's languages but it's been a bit harder for me to pinpoint my own language.... There is a section in the book that helps you figure out your own, and after reading it I've narrowed mine down to three. But before that sections I was thinking well I am all of those. But really we're only one, sometimes two. So I just need to pay attention a little bit more to what I feel and I should have it figured out fairly soon. And if you're not like me - and can't figure out the language for the people in your life- there is also a section to help you figure out what language other people are.This book specifically deals with the love language of couples, but I think this concept is beneficial for any relationship - siblings, friends, parents, children. And since there is a whole series of these books I don't think I'm too far off in my thinking...What I liked the most about this book is that for each language there was a story that gave an example of that language. Chapman would introduce us to a couple, tell us what their problem(s), and then tell us what their love languages were. He also gives examples for each language of how to show love to another person using that language.This was very well written book. I wish I would have picked it up earlier, as it could have made a very difficult part of my life a little bit easier. But even though things were going good for me and my boyfriend (who is now my fiancee) when I read this it still gave me some insight into why we do (or don't do) certain things. It also helped me in communicating what I need and want in my relationship. So this book isn't just for relationships that are failing, but if yours is I would recommend reading this. This book (and I'm sure the entire series) can help you better understand the relationships you have with eveyone that you love.

    This updated edition (2015) of Dr. Chapman's classic work on communicating love to a spouse makes the book just as relevant today as when it was first published. Couples need to identify each other's love language and express their love to the other through the recipient's love language. He discusses the temporal concept of "falling in love" and shows how lasting love is not built on this euphoric state but rather by expressing love to your spouse through his or her love language. A test to help determine one's language is included, but the author discusses other ways of determining it throughout the book. Sometimes the simplest concepts are the most difficult to learn and put into practice. The book stands the test of the time and would be beneficial to married couples everywhere. Editions for singles and children also exist.

    This is a classic book about expressing love and appreciation, particularly to one's husband or wife.

    Gary Chapman's theory is that there are five 'languages' of love, but that we are usually only 'fluent' in one or two of them. The languages are: words of appreciation, giving gifts, physical touch, acts of service, and quality time.

    Thus, he claims, if - for example - a husband's primary language is gifts, and his wife's is quality time, then he might keep buying her presents but feel unloved because she rarely buys him anything. At the same time, she might long to spend more time with him, and feel unloved because he's so busy... and then might feel that the gifts were manipulative, trying to buy her off.

    He recounts many anecdotes of couples who have been helped by discovering their primary love languages, and who have then learned, slowly, to speak each other's.

    It wasn't anything new to me, as I'd come across similar theories before, but I found the writing excellent, the stories inspiring, and the whole book very encouraging and thought-provoking.

    There's a questionnaire at the end to help people discover their love languages, but I found the text of the book more helpful.

    All in all, highly recommended to anyone in any kind of romantic relationship, particularly if either partner is feeling somewhat empty or unloved.

    A guide to effective expression of love and care in relationships specifically geared to marriages.The author, through his work in counseling, has discerned five "love languages": words of affirmation, physical touch, receiving gifts, quality time, and acts of service. It is not as if only one of these is important to any given person, but everyone has a primary love language, the one thing which they more earnestly desire than the rest. The difficulty, of course, is that one person's primary love language may not be the primary love language of their spouse, and vice versa. It is easier for a person to think and act according to their love language; as the author does well in expressing, to truly show love, one must work at communicating and expressing in the primary love language of the beloved.Chapman goes through each love language in some depth and provides a way forward for working through difficulties that one encounters in relationships because the "love tank" has been emptied and people are not speaking the "love language" of the other. He also has recommendations for those who find themselves in a relationship where one partner is not as on board as the other. Some questions and answers and a love language test are in appendices.I have now gone through the book twice; once early in marriage, and now again. I have found three books/principles most useful in terms of relationships: Love & Respect, Boundaries, and these 5 love languages. Very much recommended, not only for those in marital or pre=marital relationships, but also the later derivative works for those who may be single, parents, children, etc., for understanding communication of love.

    This really was excellent. It was a fairly simple read. Nothing technical. But just the kinds of things every couple in a long-term relationship needs to think about, discuss, and put into practice. I highly recommend this for everyone in a committed, long-term relationship, whether you're just starting out or have been together for decades. It will make a world of difference in how you communicate your love for one another.

    I really enjoyed what Chapman had to say about love and communication. Many of his ideas were based off common sense, making them easy to utilize once they're in your mind. I plan on implementing some of his concepts immediately.
  • (3/5)
    Like most relationship books, how helpful this is depends on how many you've already read. All common sense gets redundant after a while. The premise is true enough, except for the fact that there are more than five basic needs out there. My boyfriend found a 'love language' in the book to fit him perfectly, but although my own need is just as straightforward, you can't contort any of the given five to fit it. And there's no way I'm unique there. The religion angle was significantly more low key than I was expecting. Again, that perspective depends on what you've already read. The case study examples really got repetitive, but I'm not sure what would have been a better way to do it. Some of his advice definitely only works for certain personality types and -- probably more important -- certain subcultures, but he's pretty up front about that too.

    EVERYbody needs to read this book! It made a PHENOMENAL difference in my marriage once I learned the "love language" of my husband. It also improved my relationships with my children and even with friends and extended family members.It is a very easy and enjoyable read.

    It's pop psychology at its best, light, deep and interesting at the same time. it's designed to make you slap your forehead. i love the concept of love languages. I'm going to incorporate it into my writing from now on. it made a lot of sense to me. And I love lists. ^_^

    Gary Chapman understands how to simply explain different ways in which we show love, how we feel most loved and opens up insight on other people's preferences. It's a must for couples who want to deepen their relationship and understand each others differences.
  • (2/5)
    This books seems to be a streach in its basic premise.
  • (3/5)
    I like the idea behind this book, and like how it is written in a way that simplifies the subject matter. The book is easy to read and understand. I like the differentiation made between feeling in love, and actual love. It is simple, and won't cover every circumstance and situation, but is a good starting point in understanding how we each process things in different ways.
  • (4/5)
    This was a very interesting book. I've seen it recommended by many people over the past few years, and I can see why; it really teaches you to look at not only how you communicate, but what types of communication are most rewarding for you. It does have a strong Christian message, but that shouldn't deter folks of other faiths. I'm critical of most relationship type books because they tend to be corny or preachy. This one feels... well, friendly. I can see why his seminars draw big crowds.I found out I'm an Acts of Service kind of gal. I guess that explains why I love baking cookies for my husband to take to work, and why I get so mad if I'm the only one who changes diapers all day long. I like to do things for others, and yet I get resentful if the favor isn't returned sometimes. I really hadn't thought of that as my love language before, and yet it makes perfect sense.
  • (4/5)
    A very valuable insight into the fact that we all receive love in different ways. Why does one person really feel loved when bought a gift whereas others need to often hear the words 'I love you'? We are all different and this book helps us to identify what we like most of all - our preferred love language and what our partner most appreciates. Put into practice this can help build very strong relationships.

    You've got to read this book. It will open your eyes in terms of understanding your spouse. It is a quick, easy read with simple ideas that will make a profound difference in your relationship.

    I enjoyed this book. If you are having marrital problems, seek a counselor, but if you want to learn how to communicate more effectively, this is a good place to start.
  • (4/5)
    A very fine work on relationships, probably the best I have read. Chapman has discovered something striking and something very true, and the understanding of these Love Languages has explained a great deal in my own life. It is too early to understand completely how my own marriage will change because of this book, but it will change.
  • (3/5)
    The ideas expressed in this book are pretty routine for marriage counseling these days. But his way of puting it all together in this book is easy and accesable. A must for all marraiges.

    I learned more about my wife by reading this book than any other book out in print. Read this to help your marriage, save your marriage. This book will change you marriage for the best.

    This is a fabulous book that takes a look at the five love languages that every human being speaks. It's a wonderful read, and really helped me out a lot in my marriage!
  • (5/5)
    This was a very quick and easy read. Some of it seemed rather intuitive, but the insights around even these parts were enough for me to give this a very high rating and recommend this. (Plus, they have a quiz and I'm a sucker for those.)

    I've heard people talk about this book and their own love languages for years and always kind of rolled my eyes. I've encountered so many times in the past few weeks that I finally decided to get a copy and read it myself...fully expecting...nothing. My apologies Mr Chapman! Hands down the best book on marriage I've ever encountered and has utterly changed my perspective on all I once thought wrong with my vews on marriage. People often use the term "life changing" far too easily...this book truly is.

    I recently reread it because it was the only reading material in my car when it was getting serviced. How do you express love? This is the question Gary asks but also answers in helping us understand that everybody expresses love in some form or another. I read this years ago and before reading it avoided it because it just sounded so corny. Please don't let the title fool you. This is a great starter read in recognizing how we express love differently and also how we can best help our partners appreciate the love we have for them.Gary breaks down the love we express into 4 outcomes: Acts of Service, Quality Time, Physical Touch, Gifts, and Affirmation. He them breaks them down to help us understand how we express love. Gary says to help others understand that we need to communicate to them in their love language.Yes, it is simplistic and a little corny, but it is excellent starting material for married couples!

    What's the deal with having to choose a PRIMARY love language? I like them all, I think my primary love language is all 5 categories. I'm either very easy to please or very high maintenance--I haven't decided which.
  • (4/5)
    Want to make a bad marriage good? A good marriage very good? A very good marriage great? Wanna go straight from bad to great? Read this book, preferably in tandem with your mate, absorb the information, and it most likely will net the results you want. I promise. This book is worth its salt.

    A wedding gift from my sister, who claimed it was a "must-read" for everyone married. I have to admit, it was probably the most important book I've read in many years, as it teaches you how to make a marriage successful again after you've "fallen out of love." Fortunately, I read it while I was still in the fairytale "in love" phase (which fortunately I'm still in) so that I'm not disillusioned when humdrum reality sets in, which is inevitable.

    Chapman has identified that we all have a different way of expressing love and different ways that we prefer to receive love. If your "love language" does not match up with your partner, you're in for some trouble. Identifying your "love language" (and your partner's) allows you to communicate effectively what you need, and what you need to do for your partner, to "keep the love tank filled". Sounds corny, totally. But I found it very insightful and true.
