    1. GreatI'm very skeptical when reading self help books because everyone has their own opinion to solving a problem. However this book was very logical and in a way, methodical. Many magazines and "how to make your husband talk more"-internet-type articles are do vague. This book provided step by step precise ways to solve martial issues. Not only that but also how to measure your success in your effort. At first it was very hard for me to process this book because I am technically still in the "in [...]

    2. I read the original book when I was first married and I really like it. I picked this one up because my husband was gone so often this year I wanted to get some advice that was military specific and I didn't really feel like there was a whole lot that was new from the original. I think I was hoping for some sort of magic trick to make separations easier, but let's be real, it just stinks. So, maybe three stars is harsh because my expectations were too high. If you are military and haven't read t [...]

    3. This book is every bit as good as the original and in many ways better. As you can surmise from the title, this book is specific to military service members and their loved ones and it definitely delivers. My expectations when I picked this book up were not great. I expected a shell of the original love languages book with some bolt on additions specific to military culture. I was pleasantly surprised when I began reading and found that this book is a complete reworking with pointed examples and [...]

    4. Being a new military wife is scary, especially when you're as young as 19! I read this book, not because my marriage is failing, but because I wanted to discover any tips that Gary Chapman and Jocelyn Green could advise to military spouses. Reading about other couple's struggles kind of freaked me out because my husband and I are still in the stage of marriage where it's brand new and we say we'll never fight, but all couples fight! But reading about the ways I could express my love for him and [...]

    5. Second time reading and glad I reread it. I picked up on some stuff I missed the first time. It's a good read and helpful, even on recruiting duty. Def a book to keep coming back to.

    6. A very inspiring quote which pretty much sums up the objective: "Love doesn't erase the past, but it makes the future different."While reading it, in my subconscious I was continuously kind of denying the whole idea that something so complex as love could ever be classified by whatever criterion and poorly by considering what we as individuals understand out of it. And told myself, yeah, this book would probably end up placing individuals in each and every class, due to how complex we are as hum [...]

    7. Oh my goodness this is one of the best books I've ever read! Sure it's the Military Edition, inclined to address the unique relationships of military couples, but the very valuable insights and suggestions are extremely helpful for any individual and couple. Never heard of this series before but I could recognize our sons love languages as I read through this and now know there is an edition addressed to enrich kids by understanding their language, too. Very valuable book. Every one should read, [...]

    8. It's been a long time since I've read the original 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman, so this was a refreshing re-read that reminded me of many of the finer details I've forgotten. But I was impressed with this version for military couples. Not only is every example in the book from a military family, but the authors added in great suggestions to help spouses cover deployments. This book is definitely an asset to military marriages who want to do more than just survive their active duty time.

    9. Maybe it's because I'm in the field of psychology, but I found the language of this book to be very patronizing. Another major issue was religion popping its head in.However, the concept behind this book is still sound. I truly appreciate the suggestions for military couples especially with deployment. And I look forward to using what I've learned from this in the future as my relationship with my husband moves forward.

    10. This version has some good tips for military couples going through deployments. The Five Love Languages are such a great tool for every marriage. Every couple should at least do the test to determine their love languages.

    11. So As happens more and more often the older I get, I can't remember why I wanted to read this book. But at some point, I was sufficiently interested that I put it on my "hold" list at the library. This week it arrived. It appears to be a brand new copy, so I think this one was ordered based on my request so many months ago.I'm a military spouse (why else would I read this book?) and I suspect that I was in one of my "this lifestyle is weird and challenging, what's out there to help military fami [...]

    12. I really appreciate all the concepts Dr. Chapman talks about in this book. This is not his first, nor his last, of this type, but it is of the same essence. Of how love plays a crucial role in all relationships and how if our ‘love tank’ is empty we will be less inclined to respond positively to our spouse/significant other/person we have a relationship with. It’s all about finding out your love language, and theirs, and responding in a respectful way that makes love blossom and everybody [...]

    13. I enjoyed this book because it allowed me to learn what is fulfilling to someone’s emotional needs. Many of us don’t know what it is like to feel the way others do, especially when you don’t agree with their love language. I thought the military version was good, but living with someone with psychological problems has its own issues not covered here. You can try to speak your loved one’s language, but there are also unique issues alone with this. Besides therapy and necessary treatments, [...]

    14. I absolutely love this book and couldn't go a day without putting it down!My fiancé and I are both in the military. This military edition includes advice approaching marriage through the paradigms of service members, spouses, deployment phases, etc. Learning about the different love languages has been very helpful in our relationship and overcoming certain stress factors or experiences that come with our profession.I highly recommend that military couples read this book, not necessarily when ma [...]

    15. Good read for any military couple whether dating, just married or married for years. Had a lot of good suggestions for the challenging military life style and made me look at new or different ways on how to address things in a (military) relationship. Highly recommend!!

    16. Not too different than any other love language book, but it does included helpful examples of experiences specific to military couples/families.

    17. Foundational for couples communication. Helpful insights and subjects to consider for military couple.

    18. I have heard good things about the 5 Love Languages series of books for years, but I had not read any of them until I received this version at a post-deployment yellow ribbon workshop. I now think ALL military couples should read this edition, and everyone else should read at least one of the others. It would transform marriage in this country and around the world if we all learned to identify and speak the primary (and secondary) love languages of our spouses. Likewise, applying the same princi [...]

    19. The 5 Love Languages Military EditionThe Secret to Love That LastsBy Gary D Chapman, Jocelyn Green I was a fan of the original 5 Love Languages book as I read it what probably 14 years ago after I first got married. I think it’s a wonderful example of how we are as different people and gives us the tools to work together to create a loving and stable marriage. Especially in a time when marriage seems so expendable and easy to walk away from. Now on to this book specifically, I loved it!! As a [...]

    20. I recommend just reading the original book - The Five Love Languages How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate.This edition, written specifically for military couples didn't really apply much to me. The FAQ's in the back of the book were the best part. I probably couldn't apply a lot of his suggestions because during deployments, I have zero communication (my sailor is on a submarine). I felt he was speaking to those that have spouses who deploy overseas or on a carrier ship.

    21. Gary Chapman, the author, is a marriage counselor who also conducts marriage seminars that have improved many a marriage. Even if you have a wonderfully happy marriage or relationship, it's helpful to know what type of love actions are the most meaningful to your spouse or significant other, or even to your children or best friends! The quiz at the back of the book helps both of you figure out which love language(s) is important to you: words of affirmation, acts of service, physical touch, rece [...]

    22. Like I mentioned before, this book pretty much has nothing in common with the rest of the books I've read this year (school textbooks aside). But nonetheless, it’s been on my reading list for a while not. About 9 months, actually. I attended a women’s resiliency workshop way back in June where all the attendees were given this book. The workshop was really a self-care workshop. There’s a quiz you can take that will help you figure out your primary and secondary love language. It’s also g [...]

    23. i like it , simple as that , we can say it can handle the ugly truth in a beautiful way , there is no fairy tales but it's more about the choice of love all i hope for that i could make the best use of it by applying it with every single member in my family bec it's more like a life style not only for dealing with your spousebut l'd like to add my own conce book may lead u to a final assumption that as "in love " case is not an important as it reach an end but i think we all need this sparkle to [...]

    24. It was difficult for me to focus on what was being said in the book because I was so distracted by the author's boastful tone of self importance. I felt like it was redundant when compared to the original 5 Love Languages and didn't have as much military-spouse applications as I would have liked. I think the quiz at the end of the book is helpful if you and your spouse are having difficulty meeting each others needs and expectations. Do yourself a favor and skip the pages full of bragging and ju [...]

    25. Insightful and convicting, this book should be part of every couple's pre-marital counseling! Chapman explains the 5 emotional components of love in an easy to understand manner and provides lots of practical advice for how to love in these ways. I especially liked. his spin on putting these in practice even if a spouse is deployed/sent away for work. It was timely and offered a lot of wisdom that I already see making a difference in my own marriage!

    26. Don't let the reviews fool you. It's not just for couples who need a little guidance. My fiancé and I are currently experiencing our first deployment while planning a wedding together. It helps us understand the many ways to love and understand before starting our own life together. Learn from each other, not from example. A few languages are hard to perform due to our separation but you must get creative.

    27. A sound approach to good communication with your partner and identifying what is important to them. Although the writer is clearly a Christian, he includes only minimal biblical references which can be skimmed over if you do not subscribe to faith based advice. The rest is really common sense but a bit of a different spin from other ``self help`` approaches. A very good read.

    28. AwesomeI was given a copy of the 5 love languages never read it. Then I became a military wife and a good friend told me to read this book because distant and anger became a problem. I now see the light. Maybe I can understand my spouse a whole lot better without yelling. Great read for any military couple.

    29. This book seemed like common sense to me, though it did have some good ideas for long distance couples (like "meet up" at a website and chat about it). The end got really preachy, which I should have known since this is a Christian book. Overall I thought it was just ok, but it claims that it has saved many relationships.
