What is The 5 Love Languages about and why should I read it?

The 5 Love Languages answers the question: what do couples mean when they say, "my partner doesn't love me". Gary delves into the ways in which couples miscommunicate love to one another leaving them feeling unloved, lacking in connection, and eager to escape what they perceive as a loveless marriage. Within the chapters you will discover your own and your partner's love language, as well as what each love language means and how to express and receive love based upon your love language(s). Gary provides additional resources such as a quiz for discovering your own love language and a set of frequently asked questions to help you create longer lasting, healthy relationships.
