Aaahhhh, yes … this new book title sounds intriguing does it not. 🙂 The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands …. sounds a little like taking care of a child or a pet. And tell the truth, don’t you feel like that sometimes? Well, if you do, then this is the perfect book for you!
The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands
I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this book, but I’m glad that I did. The book is written by Dr. Laura Schlessinger and I wasn’t really sure what I was getting myself into when I purchased it since this was the first of her books that I’d read. But it was a very easy read, validated what I’d already learned on the subject and just made sense to me. There wasn’t a lot in there that I didn’t have to discount or disagree with. So I pretty much got my money’s worth.
I chose this book because a few months back I was searching for ways to communicate love within our marriage, so I started reading similar books like The 5 Love Languages and watching the Love & Respect Marriage Conference DVDs. Dr. Laura’s book was just an extension of what I’d started learning about earlier. And what I was learning opened my eyes to some things I didn’t know and helped me to navigate some things I knew were a problem.
As I’ve said before, I’m not a writer, so here’s the book summary from Amazon.com. The book rates 4.5 stars out of 714 reviews.
>>In her most provocative book yet, Dr. Laura urgently reminds women that to take proper care of their husbands is to ensure themselves the happiness and satisfaction they yearn for in marriage.
Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.
Countless women call Dr. Laura, unhappy in their marriages and seemingly at a loss to understand the incredible power they have over their men to create the kind of home life they yearn for. Now, in The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura shows you—with real-life examples and real-life solutions—how to wield that power to attain all the sexual pleasure, intimacy, love, joy, and peace you want in your life.
Dr. Laura’s simple principles have changed the lives of millions. Now they can change yours.<<
The bottom line is … men are not complicated and we make it a lot harder than it really is. Ha! 😀 So if you struggle in your relationship with your husband, give any of the books or DVDs I mentioned a go. They’re all well worth the money. I’m sure your husband is worth it. 😉
