    I purchased the military edition after reading The first The Fiv

    I purchased the military edition after reading The first The Five Love Languages. My husband kept saying because of his military background, he's been "trained" to think differently. So I was excited when this came out But so disappointed because it's almost identical to the first book. The stories are 90% the same, and so far, hasn't touched on the way military people are trained to "think" differently. So it's either my husband copping out of getting in touch with his love language or A way for Dr. Chapman to. increase sales. Doing a repeat book with same stories has dampened my opinion on the sincerity put into writing this.

    It's been a long time since I've read the original 5 Love Langua

    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.
