If you’ve never read this book, I can only assume that you communicate with your spouse through a series of caveman like grunts and growls. Seriously, save for the Bible, I don’t think there is another book that has so significantly shaped the way Christian couples interact with each other. The concept of it is simple: There are five ways we like to give and receive communication. Unfortunately, sarcasm is not one of them. For instance, I like to receive words of affirmation and give gifts. My wife likes to give and receive acts of service. So if I do something around the house, like trap one of the squirrels that was living in our attic like it was a vermin penthouse, she is really happy. But if I give her lots of gifts or tell her how awesome she is, she’s not that impressed.
