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.

Gary Chapman is a great author, and one of the most knowledgeable about relationships. I’m a big fan of his series. The military edition of the Five Love Languages is very similar to the original, as the principles are still going to be the same. The stories of the people who he worked with have changed, and those stories are that of military couples. It is written different enough that it can make things click for someone who didn’t necessarily get anything from the first book.
Personally, I think every couple should read the Five Love Languages. It opens your mind to things you don’t necessarily think about on your own. Every person essentially fits into one or more of five categories.
In the back of the book, there is a test you can take. The score of that test determines where you fit. There is also a test for your partner.
All in all, there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about this book. It’s a great tool for marriages and couples who may be having a hard time with communication or expressing love.
On top of all that, the cover is beautiful. It’s very American with the flag, and it’s just beautiful.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
