OPRAH WINFREY AND DR. GARY CHAPMAN DISCUSS "THE FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES" ON "OPRAH'S LIFECLASS" SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10
Los Angeles - Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Gary Chapman, best-selling author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts, discuss the languages of love in an all-new episode of "Oprah's Lifeclass," the popular series where Winfrey engages in inspiring conversations about principles that guide our lives. The episode airs this Sunday, February 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
In the episode, Winfrey learns her love language and Dr. Chapman explains how knowing what love language your partner speaks can transform your relationship. Couples across the country demonstrate how this concept brought their marriages back from the brink of divorce. Plus, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, co-host of 'The View' and one of Dr. Chapman's biggest fans, explains how the book changed her marriage.
Excerpt: Dr. Chapman explains what physical touch as your primary love language really means
WINFREY: Now a lot of guys I'm sure initially would say physical touch (is their primary love language) because they think that's sex, but that's not what we're talking about necessarily.
CHAPMAN: No, as a matter of fact a lot of the men would say to me 'Oh I know my language' even before they read the book. They just see the five (love language options) and say 'Oh physical touch.'
CHAPMAN: And I say, well maybe, but let me ask you a couple of questions. Do non-sexual touches make you feel loved? And they look at me like a deer in the headlights. 'Are there non-sexual touches?' Yes! If your wife reaches over and takes your hand, does that make you feel loved? If you get out of the car walking into the mall and she holds your hand does that make you feel loved? If she's pouring you a cup of coffee and puts her hand on shoulder, does that make you feel loved? Do non-sexual touches make you feel loved? If not, then physical touch is not your primary (love) language."
