This piece of advice is from Kathleen's grandmother, who, at 69, has been married for
"A woman holds all the control in the family. She is the center of the home. When she is happy, everyone is lifted, and when she is not, she can drag everyone down with her. Be generous with your affection, and let the little things go. And most importantly, if you don't give your husband what he needs, he will look for it somewhere else."
Sounds like she was practicing "The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands" long before I ever wrote the book!
