WINSTON-SALEM, NC—A long-awaited update to Gary Chapman’s bestselling book on marriage and relationships, The 5 Love Languages, at long last has revealed the official sixth love language to be giving an aggressive back rub to one’s spouse while in church, the author confirmed Wednesday.
The updated book, entitled The 6 Love Languages, will be available this summer, along with an extensive set of workbooks, study guides, and other supplements.
Chapman stated the update was necessary after he interviewed thousands of couples, and found that one of the most common ways for one spouse to show love to the other was to give a distracting, intense back rub right in the middle of the pastor’s sermon, especially while seated in a prominent place in the sanctuary.
“If you, as a husband, find yourself unable to really connect with your spouse and communicate your love for her effectively,” Chapman said, “it may just be that you’re not understanding her love language. You really should consider giving her an extended, vigorous back rub throughout the next church service you attend.”
According to Chapman, The 6 Love Languages will include tips and training from massage experts and chiropractors for giving the very best back rubs while sitting in church.
