I have been married over 14 years, with two children. Along the way, I became a great mom and a crappy wife. I’ve actually said to myself a few times, “why does my husband not understand that at the end of the day, I don’t want anyone in my face needing anything – not the kids and not him!” How can an educated woman not see the flaw in that thought?
Then my husband broke his leg. My estrogen took over and all I wanted to do was take care of him. Simultaneously, I became aware that lack of intimacy was one of the top relationship killers. During my caretaking, I realized I felt better “loving on” my husband. He felt better, too, and was happy and complimentary to me.
I bought “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands” and it now all seems like such a no-brainer! Without the injury, I don’t know when I would have finally put the pieces together to fix our marriage. Your advice on what it takes to make him happy is so simple. Luckily, I chose wisely and am now treating kindly. I’m also happy that I finally implemented all the advice you’ve given over the years on your radio program!
