by Dr. Gary Chapman
Are you and your spouse speaking the same language? Not Chinese and French! We’re talking “love languages.” People express and receive love in various styles.

He says “I Love You” with flowers, but she would have really felt special if someone had vacuumed for her! He’s annoyed because she’s not pleased….

Gary Chapman—a marriage counsellor for over 30 years—identifies the five basic languages of love and guides couples towards a better understanding of their unique love languages and those of their mates. …So he learns how to vacuum and she stocks up on chocolate covered cherries!
A very worthwhile read.
