Email of the Day: Your Nagging Saved My Marriage

Thank you for nagging, because it saved my marriage! Iโ€™m in my second marriage (my first husband passed away after 22 wonderful years). I waited twelve years before remarrying, but things got difficult five years in.


I became very critical of my husband when he was no longer attracted to me. We were no longer intimate. He wasnโ€™t attracted to me because I gained weight, and I gained weight because I didnโ€™t care any longer. Because I didnโ€™t care, I became critical of his every move. Iโ€™m not sure how we stayed together, but Iโ€™m glad we did.


After I found you on SiriusXM, I started to lose weight. Iโ€™m down 30 pounds and have about 15 to go. I also started being nice to him again no matter what the response. I complimented every little thing I could find. It took some time, but we finally started to talk โ€“ really talk. Suddenly, he was the man I fell in love with years ago. He now tells me how much he loves me, and weโ€™re like newlyweds again. Itโ€™s wonderful, and I wanted you to know that your impact is far wider than just the people you talk to on your program.
