Many couples fear that after a few years of marriage their spouse will lose interest and become disloyal. As the fear looms in the back of their mind they wonder if there’s an antidote. His Needs Her Needs is the perfect solution for any troubled couple. Readers learn to address their needs for emotional intimacy and how to love more creatively and sensitively. These tactics eliminate current problems that could have led to extramarital affairs.
Dr. Chapman’s study reveals that people express love in different ways as well as receive other’s expressions differently. What speaks love to you may be meaningless to your spouse. The 5 Love Languages contains the key to understanding each other's unique needs. “People act differently when their emotional love tanks are full.” By applying these principles you will learn the right language for your spouse, and soon you’ll know the profound satisfaction and joy of being able to express your love—and feeling truly loved in return.
