Do I have a MAN for a Husband? Yes, I do. We'll be married 31 years in February.
His father and maternal grandmother did not approve of me as a prospective wife and did everything in their power to discredit and humiliate me. All because I had been previously married, had a daughter and was not an 18-year-old Catholic virgin. His mother, on the other hand, was one of the sweetest most loving people I have ever met in my life which is where my husband got his character. He disowned his father, who was truly evil, and his grandmother and has devoted his life to making me happy.
As a result, I cannot do enough for him including reading The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands when he was about to retire. That book has helped me keep focused on the important stuff and ignore the petty. I also have to tell you my husband has brought me down from my high horse on numerous occasions by saying "Now, now would Dr. Laura approve?" That makes me laugh every time.
