The 5 Love Languages Military Edition: The Secret to Love That Lasts

Front Cover
Moody Publishers, Aug 23, 2013 - Religion - 224 pages

Marriage is hard enough for the everyday civilian. But imagine marriage when you’re separated by thousands of miles . . . when one of you daily faces the dangers of combat . . . while the other shoulders all the burden of home-front duties. Add to that unpredictable schedules, frequent moves, and the challenge of reintegration, and it’s no wonder military marriages are under stress.

Guided by input from dozens of military couples in all stages of their careers, authors Gary Chapman and former military wife Jocelyn Green offer you an unparalleled tool for navigating these challenges. Adapted from #1 New York Time bestseller The 5 Love Languages, this military edition helps heal broken relationships and strengthen healthy ones.

With an updated Q&A section specific to military marriages, stories of how military couples have adapted the five love languages to their unique lifestyles, and tips for expressing love when you’re miles away, The 5 Love Languages Military Edition will take you on a well-worn path to marital joy, even as you face the pressures of serving your country.

The challenges of military marriages are unique, but they don’t have to hinder love. Learn how to keep yours healthy and flourishing.

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 military wife I think it’s going to such a help to the young families just beginning out there. What good examples of ways to move forward. And make sure the love tank is always full!
