November 4, 2011Distress in My Marriage
Hi Dr. Laura,
When I was younger, I remember my Mom listening to your show in the car when she would drive from here to there. Your advice always stuck with me. Fast forward many years I am now the Mom driving the child around.
I recently went to a book sale and found a copy of your book, "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands." I flipped through it, and decided to purchase it since I wasn't feeling particularly content with my relationship with my husband of 5 years. We had been having some problems for quite sometime, and I was a bit concerned about our future if after only 5 years we were already not happy. I started reading your book as soon as I got home. I finished it in two days because I felt you speaking to me through your words and stories. Your book was a wake up call for me, and made me see how I was putting all the blame on my husband instead of taking responsibility for my part in the distress in our marriage. I am a stay at home mom, and reading your book made me appreciate how FORTUNATE I am to have a husband who works long hours to allow me to do so, and be here for our four year old son. In a nut shell, your words opened my eyes. I immediately put into action your suggestions, and with in days, my husband started acting happier, which in turn made me happy.
I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and I wanted to extend my deepest thanks to you. It is no accident I wandered into that book sale that day, and decided to give your book a try. I truly believe God led me to it to help me see the error of my ways. My marriage will be eternally grateful. Thank you again, Dr. Laura!
