Memorable Quotes:

"When the love tank is empty, and you feel like they don't love me, they wish they weren't married to me, life begins to look pretty dark. And so, the only way to meet that need for love is to speak love in a language that communicates to them emotionally." [00:14:48] – Gary Chapman

"You can't make somebody forgive you. You just be open and transparent and loving toward them, and they will make a decision to love you, forgive you, and love you or not. That's a decision they have to make." [00:33:53] – Gary Chapman
