Lucky To Have A Wife Like You

Dear Dr. Laura,

My husband is in the military and is only allowed to write me letters and call maybe once every two weeks. Even though I am so proud of him and his service I started feeling a little disconnected, lonely, and resentful, but then I read your book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands".

I got to go see my husband for a weekend and I became his girlfriend with way more benefits. I just received a letter from him (the first one I've gotten since our weekend together) and it said "I had such a good time this past weekend. I love you. I still can't believe how I got so lucky in this world to have a wife like you. You are the sexiest woman in the whole world. THE WAY YOU LOVE, MAKES ME WORK HARDER TO BE A BETTER MAN TO YOU." Sounds like something right out of your book! So instead of resenting him for his job and being away, I started treating him like the REAL MAN he is...he is my provider and, not only my protector, but part of this Country's.

Thank you for all you do.
