Coming Down From My High Horse

I recently completed your Marriage 101 course, and I wanted to thank you for saving me from myself and saving my husband from a miserable "ever after."  Saying I was a horrible wife is an understatement.  I treated my husband terribly, and I am embarrassed by my behavior toward a wonderful man who had all but begged me to be the wife he desperately wanted and needed.  I was on the verge of losing him before I discovered you and your program.  When I first started listening to your advice to callers, it was so different from what I knew - I was around women whose attitudes toward their husbands were awful.  I am disgusted that I went along with it for so long.  

After reading your books and listening to your show, I realized that my husband was working long hours and finding other things to do in the evening because why would he WANT to come home to ME?  I acted annoyed when he came home and then went out of my way to ignore him.  

I did that until I had a revelation one day after listening to you.  I was cooking dinner, and he walked into the kitchen.  I stopped what I was doing, grabbed him in an embrace, kissed him like it was our first kiss and told him how happy I was to see him and how much I missed him.  He was SHOCKED, and even blushed!  He came home earlier the next night, and I treated him kindly again.  That has continued every single night, and he no longer works late.  

Thank you for waking me up and knocking me off my high and mighty horse that so many of my women friends are on as well.  I will forever be grateful that I found you before it was too late, while I still have the chance to be the wife and girlfriend that my husband deserves.


Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
