Respect, Love and Commit
Respect, Love and Commit

Dear Dr Laura,

I'm way behind on catching on to you. I live in a rural area, etc, so it's only through your books that I've been able to experience your advice.

I picked up the Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands from the library recently. My husband saw it sitting on the table and asked about it. I wasn't done reading it yet, and promised I'd give him the rundown when I was finished. I'd heard controversy about it from an online forum, so I wanted to find out for myself what it was about.

What I found extremely interesting was that your book confirmed my stance on my marriage. Granted, I'm imperfect, but it's how I strive to manage things. Having a severe chronic pain disability as a result of a work injury certainly has a negative impact, but I'm working on it as best I can.

I mention the disability because before I was injured, my idea of marriage (and faith) was far different. I would have been among those decrying your book. God used my injury, and loss of use of my dominant hand and arm to grow my faith, and show me how my attitude was harming my marriage and therefore my children.

Reading your book confirmed and encouraged me in my point of view and determination to respect, love, and commit to my husband and marriage.

Thank you.
