Email of the Day: You Made Me a Better Wife and Mom

Email of the Day: You Made Me a Better Wife and Mom

My husband and I are both 40 years old and Iraq combat veterans.  We have two boys, 12 and 7.  Despite having two loving parents who were married for 50 years until my dad died, I did a lot of wrong things in my marriage and with my children.


I went back to work when my oldest was six months old and didn’t stop until I began listening to you seven years ago.  I also tried to “control” my husband and make him bend to MY will.    Now I praise stay-at-home moms.  I was a counselor and I find myself using your terminology and mindset so much now that I’m thinking of using the rest of my GI bill to become a licensed psychotherapist!

Now I’m kind and considerate to my husband, and I’ve apologized for the wretch that I once was.  My marriage is stronger than ever, our sex life is better, and my children tell me that they are happy that I’m here for them and can love and nurture them as only I can.  I also tell all the women I know when they complain about their men to read “The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.”
