Playing Your Cards For A Happy Home
Playing Your Cards For A Happy Home
07/12/2017


Dr. Laura:

I consider myself a true feminist, because I now embrace and celebrate femininity as distinctly different from and complementary to masculinity.  Thanks to your influence, I am empowered to be a strong and respectable woman!  I've learned that giving to my husband and especially feeding his male ego did not diminish me at all, but did just the opposite!  Feeding him has given ME power, fulfillment and happiness in life that fighting him for dominance never got me.  

My husband and I have been happily married for eleven years.  I read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" when we got engaged, and it completely changed my attitude and that completely changed our relationship.  We had done everything wrong - we met when I was seventeen and he was eighteen, and we shacked up for five years before we got married.  We moved out of state for MY job, and during that time, my career was first and foremost.  He was secondary, and I treated him like an accessory to my life.  I thought I had to compete and WIN to be respected.  For me, being a strong woman meant that I had to be superior to a man.  Our relationship was rocky for quite a while.

Once I started treating him properly, I realized what a good, strong, and respectable man I had, and he's become more so since then.  I now understand how to play my cards to get what I really want, which is a happy and peaceful home where I am truly respected and loved.
