Email of the Day: How Not To Be Your Husband’s Girlfriend

Email of the Day: How Not To Be Your Husband’s Girlfriend

I watched an old movie recently and thought of you throughout. It’s called “There’s Always Tomorrow,” and it starred Fred MacMurray, Joan Bennett and Barbara Stanwyck. It was about a man who entertained an affair with an old flame because he was ignored by his wife and kids. The character was always trying to please his wife, but she was always distracted by what the kids wanted and what her volunteer groups needed first. The kids essentially ignored their father except when they needed money.


I have listened to you for years and have learned to be my husband’s girlfriend, and to enjoy the activities he enjoys doing just so we can do things together. As a result, I’ve become a crack shot and really knew how much he thought when he bought me my own rifle!

Thank you for nagging all of us wives to be our husband’s girlfriends. In this movie, the only reason the wife kept her husband was because the “girlfriend” had a conscience and eventually turned him away. It’s worth watching even though it was released over sixty years ago, because it has lots of lessons that Mother Laura teaches!
