Appreciating The Man You Married
Appreciating The Man You Married

Dr. Laura:

I'm a long-time listener, married to my husband for just over a year.  During our first year of marriage, I experienced some health issues.  I was bounced around to different doctors and specialists and put on various medications.  To say it was a less than ideal first year is an understatement.  Through the whole thing, my husband was amazing, and I realized what a special man I married.

During these tough times, I continued to cook his meals and share my appreciation for his love and support.  However, our physical love took a back burner because of the medications and the emotional roller coaster, so things were not as they should be after one year. 

Then I heard your special hour with wives sharing how they stay their husbands' girlfriends and I was inspired.  Although I listened to you often, I forgot to appreciate the man I married!  Over that weekend, I thought before I reacted, I smiled, laughed, touched, snuggled, loved and "loved on" my husband.  It didn't even take the entire weekend before I realized we were both happier.  He was more affectionate and loving, and I was reminded what an incredible man I married.  Thanks so much for spreading the marital success and reminding us newlyweds of the importance of small things!


Remember that you can either read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands," or you can take my video course based on the book.  To find out more about the course, go to marriage one oh one dot com.
