A Different Kind of Wife
A Different Kind of Wife
01/23/2012

I'm writing to thank you for helping me change my perspective on being a good wife. Today one of my old friends posted on Facebook how her husband is such a baby when he's sick. Other women chimed in to say how pathetic their husbands are also. One stated how she simply ignores her husband; after all it's his fault because he didn't rest. (Maybe that’s because he's working hard to provide for his family). This made me so sad for the men of these women. It's bad enough for them to complain to each other, but on a public forum it’s disgusting.

My husband recently pointed out how much it hurts him when I say anything negative about him in front of other people. This is an awful habit I am determined to completely stop. He reminded me he just wants to feel respected and (in his words) wants me to think he's “cool.”  He also reminded me that I listen to you, Dr. Laura, and really have no excuses for my behavior. After all, you’ve taught me better than that!
 
Thank you so much for teaching me to be a different kind of wife.

Paige

P.S.  My husband is a cool guy!

P.P.S.  I love taking care of him when he's sick; it reminds me how much he needs me.
