My husband Dave and I have been married 32 years. We were always “in sync” as far as tastes and life philosophies. We always enjoyed the same kinds of entertainment and food and sense of humor, and we’ve always considered ourselves happily married.
Our spats, however, always seemed to follow the same pattern, and we never learned from them. Then I read “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.” Wow. Big difference in that spat pattern. I learned to divert the energies. I started by saying “When you talk to me like that, I don’t think you love me.” I used a “baby doll” voice when I said that, and we stopped and started to laugh. One time, at a friend’s house, I said something that sounded “short” to Dave, and he repeated that comment in front of our friends. We all laughed and he told them we’ve used that line on each other before.
I also learned from your book not to nag. Before, there were so many ways to nag. Now, I just don’t. I stop myself every time. Not nagging is a miracle worker. We tell each other “I love you” several times a day. We kiss, we hug, we pat each other’s tushies. It’s fun. We pay each other compliments….a lot. I’ll always think of your book as my helpmate, keeping my marriage happy and healthy.
