5 Love Languages, 7 Days, 1 Couple

Postby little_tigress » Sat Dec 06, 2014 3:26 am

I thought this was an interesting article. A married couple decided to test out the 5 love languages theory for 1 week to see how it might affect their marriage:

yep; I think that out of all the marriage books and marriage advice and pre-marital counseling out there; the love languages is one of the most important things to understand about nurturing a good relationship.

It's sad too how in the super-fundamentalist camp things like Chapman's books can be lambasted. I recall someone claiming that it was just a "give to get" scheme and that you should just "act like Christ and be Godly." The former is not true, the latter is true but decontextualized and worthless.

If someone thinks it's a scheme, that makes me wonder if they understand love at all. Of course, that's assuming they've read the book.

Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.

Good point.

I think I'd actually like to reread this book sometime. I'm pretty sure I gave it to my mom before I moved though. I'll go raid some second hand bookshop somewhere :D
