  • There are no specific prerequisites for this course in terms of technical skills. The course is ideas-based and is an in-depth examination of the theory of love presented in the book, The 5 Love Languages. Students do not need to have read the book, nor do they need to be married or in a relationship currently to benefit from the course. However, an interest in relationships, in the nature of love relationships and a desire to find true love are beneficial assets and attitudes to bring to the course.

The 5 Love Languages Explained: The Secret to Love That Lasts examines, distils and explains the theory of romantic love presented by Dr. Gary Chapman is his book, "The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love That Lasts". The central thesis of this book is that romantic love - the kind of passionate and euphoric state which we see depicted in movies, books and pop music - is, actually, a delusion intended to ensure the propagation of the species, not as a form of lasting happiness. As sobering as this thesis is, the good news is that lasting love can be achieved but only by couples who learn how to express love in their spouse's primary love language. The course is structured in 13 sections, with one lecture per section.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is intended for anyone who is in a relationship now or hopes to be in the future.
