My girlfriend and I have been together for just over 7 years. The last 3 or 4 years have really been challenging for us. We have a beautiful little girl together so we have been trying extra hard to keep our relationship fruitful. I found the 5 Love languages quiz for couples online and I thought it could be useful. I’ve actually taken the quiz twice over the past 2 or 3 years so I can definitely provide a valid 5 Love Languages Review.

The numbers don’t lie.

Although I have my own personal reasons for wanting to provide a 5 Love Languages Review, the divorce statistics in our country was a much bigger factor. In the United States, over 50% of marriages end in divorce. The average lifespan of a marriage is around 7 years. Why is it so hard to keep the flame burning? The ability to maintain a long lasting loving relationship has never been an easy task. I would say it’s even more difficult in this new world where many new forms of media are influencing the way we think and view things.

Who is responsible for the 5 Love Languages?

Former marriage counselor, Dr. Gary Chapman pored through years of session notes to make the determination that couples do not effectively communicate their love. He came to the conclusion that there are 5 categories that can reveal a unique approach in how to effectively love another person. The 5 Love Languages has been improving relationships for more than 25 years. Its ideas are simple and conveyed with clarity and humor, making this book as practical as it is personable. Get inspired by real life stories and a common sense approach that will teach you to love better and grow closer.
