I Put The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands to the Test
09/23/2010
IconBecause of YOU!!! I just celebrated my 16yr wedding anniversary. My family is in tact. I am my husband's girlfriend. My three daughters are being raised by both their parents who are deeply in love. In July of 1995, I had found out my husband was having an affair that had been going on for 2 years. He told me he was in love with her and no longer loved me. I was dumbfounded. Needless to say, I was beside myself with grief, pain, anger, self pity...every raw negative emotion you can think of. My sister in law gave me your book "The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands"......WOW, what an eye opener. I saw myself in so many of those awful women....and it was pretty hard to stomach. I did not ask him to stay, as a matter of fact I told him he could leave and I would sign anything he wanted stating I wanted no money from him, nor would I keep our daughters from him.....he wouldn't leave. So, I took everything you said and put it to the test....I loved him, I praised him, I took care of him and I made love to him, and most important, I let him be the Man, my Man... He responded by stepping up to the plate. He tossed her to the side and he now devotes his every waking moment to me and our girls. I can't keep him away or off of me, not that I mind. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I honestly believe that I would be divorced right now if not for YOU!!! C.
