This is a wonderful Book. You can also get the audio version. It shares how people receive love. Once you know your partners primary love language and they know yours relationships get better fast My love language is words of appreciation and quality time with my spouse. My wife's primary love language is acts of service and communicating properly. The Five Love Languages, author Gary Chapman. It complement church teaching. It helped me with my relationship with my wife and children. I have even seen how I can work better with others at work.

Comments:

Agreed!    
"LOVE this book! It not only helps with spousal relationships but has also strengthened the relationships I have with my children. Good idea posting about it! I think it could be quite beneficial to those relationships that have been torn apart by pornography and sexual addictions, I know it has helped mine."

Grateful for your response.    
"I am so glad you you commented I am always a little apprehensive about telling members about non LDS publications. I am going to create another website devoted to 4 books I have read in the past twelve months. It will focus on "Stop blaming everyone and everything for all the problems in your life." The main theme will be centred around create a positive attitude even when it's really hard."

Leadership and Self Deception    
"Is this book in your group of 4? It's a good one along those same lines...and written by some LDS authors, though they do not portray themselves that way.

Reviving this thread...    
"A couple of years after our wedding my wife read this book at her book club. I remember her coming home and telling about the book, and telling me what her love languages were. She told me what she thought mine where and asked if I'd be willing to take the test. I'm sure I said I would take it, but never did. Between school, sports, and my selfish addictions I never got around to it.

Now, several years later, I hope I am coming to a realization of what my wife was really asking for back then. She didn't want me to take the quiz just for kicks and giggles. She was seeking a connection, an understanding. It has taken me all this time to wake up and realize that is exactly what I want/need.

I have now started reading this book too. I know my wife loves me. She has done nothing over the years but show me time and time again that she loves me. Now, I need to step up and show her that I want the loving, intimate relationship we always should have had."

"Are you battling a demon of addiction—tobacco or drugs, or the pernicious contemporary plague of ography? Whatever other steps you may need to take to resolve these concerns, come first to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Trust in heaven’s promises. In that regard Alma's testimony is my testimony: "I do know," he says, "that whosoever shall put their trust in God shall be supported in their trials, and their troubles, and their afflictions."
