If you haven’t heard of them, the five love languages, coined by Gary Chapman in 1992, are Acts of Service, Quality Time, Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, and Receiving Gifts. Chapman’s theory was that every person has one primary and one secondary love language. Understanding your partner's love language, helps you communicate and love each other better.
