He Became Cold and Indifferent

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   My husband and I have been married 6 years and we have two children. When I became pregnant with my last child, my husband became very cold and indifferent. He said he didn’t love me and said I was like a mother to him. He began having an affair with another woman. After the baby was born I filed for divorce and we got a settlement and separated. But my husband didn’t want a divorce. 

   We went to a marriage counselor for help and he told us what was wrong but didn’t tell us how to make things right. After being separated for three months, we went back together on a six-month trial. We were both miserable separated. We were from very religious homes. We attended and were very active in our own church when this happened. 

   During this trial period our marriage was doing fairly well but was shaky and wasn’t what I wanted. I didn’t feel the tenderness I wanted and needed so desperately. I didn’t feel loved like I wanted to be. I felt like our marriage was very insecure but I didn’t know what to do about it. I felt helpless and worried constantly that my husband would find another woman to have an affair with. 

   At this time I heard about Fascinating Womanhood. The first time I practiced the principles, I saw my husband’s face light up and I felt tenderness, though small, toward me. We had had very little communication, but when I started admiring him and giving him the sympathetic understanding you describe, he became a changed man. His shell has disappeared and he tells me all his problems and treats me with a lovely tender feeling. It is a marvelous experience, one I have always dreamed of but never had. The more I admire him, the more love I feel from him.

He Started Singing Quietly

Richard Forsyth

~ From An Anonymous Contributor, 

   One of the most dramatic cases of my experience was of a young couple who were on the brink of divorce—due to the husband’s insistence. They had many problems, and he had some major faults. He had never bought his wife anything, although he had money in savings for himself for a trip to Japan; he resented his baby and said, “She stands in the way of my success.” He withheld marital love, grudgingly. He was losing his faith in God, and he didn’t want any more children.

   But his wife didn’t want a divorce and came across a Fascinating Womanhood course. After hearing the lesson on manliness she decided to try admiring him. He is a handsome man, 6'4'', with an especially well built body. But all she said to him was: “I have always admired your manly strength—your beautiful muscles.”

   She said that something took place within his soul. She couldn’t explain it exactly but it was a peculiar look on his face. He didn’t say anything in response but was very quiet. And if I remember correctly, I think she said he started singing quietly.

   Within a few days, he took the money he had saved for Japan and bought her household furniture. Within a few weeks, although marital love had been withheld, he now offered it willingly. He has returned to his religion and is joyfully anticipating the birth of a new baby.

   I know this story sounds too dramatic to be true, but it is nevertheless true and happened just as I told it. Of course this girl continued to look for traits to admire in him. But she believes that his awakening was when she first complimented his muscular strength.

There Was Another Woman

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   My husband and I had been married 11 years and I thought we were happy. I was alone much of the time with four children but he had his own business and I thought that was the way it had to be. The only time we had together was Sunday and that always turned out boring and miserable and I knew my husband was even more bored but I didn’t know what to do. Then it got so bad he even worked on Sunday.

   Then suddenly there was another woman. He went on with his affair, sometimes living at home, sometimes not. When this had been going on about 2 years I found FW. I tried living it but it was almost impossible since I saw him so little and we talked even less.

   After I had the book about 6 months I decided that I must file for divorce as I didn’t believe it was helping the children to stay together—they knew too much.

   When I told him, he said he didn’t believe me but said he would move out as soon as possible. It wasn’t but a month until he started asking what he had to do to come back to us. I poured on the FW thick and heavy. I told him if he would give up the other woman, I wanted a chance to prove myself to him. We started dating and he was with us practically all the time. About 3 months later I dropped the divorce and he moved back home.

   He keeps saying over and over that he never thought he could be this happy with me. He said that when he asked to come back, he was prepared to give up the other woman but that he thought he would have to accept the boring, miserable life. He says that I am just as innocent and sweet as I ever was but that there has been so much more added to me.

   Incidentally, I gave this book to my mother and she can’t believe the change it has made in their marriage, which is 46 years old. Also, the “other woman” in my case is now breaking up another home and I have just recently given the wife my FW book and I certainly pray she will get the opportunity that I got to apply the principles.

Feminine Wiles and Ways

Richard Forsyth

edmonton-engagement-photographer-wedding-edmonton-photography-canola-alberta-6.jpg

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   I was raised on a farm and worked like a boy, gardening, doing chores, etc. I never had any frilly feminine things as a girl and never thought such things necessary. Perfume, nail polish, eye makeup, frilly lingerie were for fancy town women who never did anything useful or helped their men.

I married my husband with the idea of making him into something acceptable. I thought he should appreciate my efforts. He had been dominated a great deal by his father and so took a lot of my bossiness without comment. Between his Dad and me he's never really had a chance to be himself. I felt responsible for what he did and he let me.

   I worried about money and church. He blithely spent whatever he liked, writing out checks, going into debt. His family was not religious, mine was. I tried to get him to go to church and he did but embarrassed me by acting bored. He continued a few bad habits he'd promised to break before were married. In spite of this we had a pretty good marriage. We were in love and thought our problems were normal ones. But our quarrels grew more frequent and violent. Money was the main bone of contention along with his refusal to give me things I thought rightfully due me.

   Worry over money was making me old before my time. He refused to try to get a really good job after getting fired from an excellent one. I tried to budget on what little was left after his weekly pocket expense and check writing. I bravely chased and bribed creditors. I even left my three little kids and went to work.

   But while I worked, he spent enough on dog food, ice cream, cola, treats for buddies, car repairs, gas, etc. that our rent checks bounced and we ended up nearly three hundred dollars in the hole. The way things were going, separation was inevitable. I had plans to leave him as soon as the kids were in school.

   About this time he became active in scouts at my insistence. Soon we had scouts coming out our ears. He spent so much time with them we hardly saw him. He broke promises of carnivals with me and the kids to go hiking with the scouts.

   I was taking a chorister class once a week and the night of my first class my husband was planning to stay home and paint the floor on my back porch for me. When I got home I found he'd called three of the scouts to do it so they could get their floor painting merit badge. Not only was the floor painted but the walls were spattered. It looked awful and I was furious!

   The very next night a friend told me about Fascinating Womanhood. I know we would have separated by now without it. My husband is a changed man now. I've never been so blissfully happy. Freedom, acceptance, praise, feminine wiles and ways and love; these are my secrets. It's really fun to be a feminine woman. I'm hardly unfulfilled.

   My husband has an extremely good job now and he loves it and is making much more in one week than he used to in two. His love and consideration for me has doubled. It is apparent in all he does. He acts romantic as a school kid. He brings me presents, helps me with the dishes occasionally and our love life is wonderful. I couldn't ask for more!

I Had Battle Fatigue

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor,

   I had been on the front lines of the battlefield of marriage for twelve years. I had fought daily for what I wanted out of marriage and it had taken its toll. I had battle fatigue, shell shock, nervous tension and I was bitter and resentful, for no victory had been gained, not even a small one. I was constantly losing ground. I felt like I bore the total worry, cost, and all the responsibilities of this war and our children were the ones—innocent ones—who were suffering. After twelve years, I felt I just couldn’t continue this any longer and it was then that I was invited to attend a Fascinating Womanhood class.

   Now I am giving up my war for peace; the tension and weariness are over; I’m happy and secure. I can again meet my domestic responsibilities with joy in my heart because I have shed those that were not mine. Practicing Fascinating Womanhood has given me more victories in four months than I had ever seen in twelve years and I didn’t fight for one of them. They were given to me without even asking. I feel loved and cherished, and it is beautiful. Even my appearance has changed; my face has a new light, my eye a new twinkle and real joy radiates from my inner being. Friends compliment me on how pretty I look.

   Before, he was making big plans for building on—not to our home but to the garage—a “bachelors” apartment where he could get away. Plans included a fireplace, sliding glass doors with a beautiful view; a Jacuzzi bath, pool table, bar, colored T.V., etc. After Fascinating Womanhood, he is now drawing up plans to remodel our house instead—including a huge family room with a fireplace, a new bedroom for us (he had been sleeping on the couch for six years) and a service room for me with washer, dryer and a place to sew and iron.

We Were Poles Apart

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   “In no way was I dependent on my husband. I was a college graduate and my husband high school only. I have a quick mind. His is slower, more methodical. We were highly successful in our chosen careers. When we married, both of us were used to being completely independent. When we married, both of us were used to being completely independent. On top of this, when my parents realized I had to beg my husband for every penny I got, they made me financially independent. Since there was nothing dependent about me, this part of FW was rough for me.

   My husband made big money but spent most of it on himself. He always said he wanted it all spent when he died and proved this by canceling his life insurance the day he was told he had cancer. His attitude in the home was “If Liz does it right, it’s her duty; if she does it wrong, she catches heck.” It was not a happy marriage for either of us. Yet we were stable and neither sought divorce.

   His work was exciting and carried us all over the world. Both of us created good lives for ourselves, outside of each other. We lived in the same house, slept in the same bed, our sex life was good, but we were poles apart—no common interests, no sharing. He rarely confided in me or permitted me to confide in him. When I tried to share he would cut me down with “I’m not interested.”

   Then I took the Fascinating Womanhood course. I took it seriously. I gave it a real try! I did everything FW suggested, whether I agreed with the principal or not. Sometimes I felt like a fool trying. I especially worked on becoming dependent and trusting, even though I feared trusting my husband.

   Let me tell you what actually happened: this husband, who one year before was harsh, critical, overbearing and a tightwad, turned into a tender, thoughtful, loving man. Not perfect, but it was a miracle. This man who wanted nothing for his wife, should he die, has now paid off the mortgage on our home and set up a handsome pension for me. He brings me coffee in bed. There’s a delightful companionship and sharing between us. I believe the real miracle began when I started being dependent.”

A Fascinating Woman from Beijing

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor from Beijing

   “I’m a Chinese woman in my late twenties. I saw your book Fascinating Womanhood in a bookstore and picked it up. After reading the introduction at the back very briefly, I was immediately drawn and bought it without hesitation, though such purchase shocked my friends because it cost me half my monthly salary.

   After, the whole book I could not help but wishing my English better, so as to tell you how a Chinese lady feels in spite of culture, education moral, etc. All I could say right now is, thank you very much dear Mrs. Andelin. You have brought a wonderful world to all the women of this land who have been searching desperately for love tender and happiness, which they are perfectly deserved of. You have brought a peace and harmony to those disturbed and fragile hearts and souls and brought self confidence to them too. I wish I could see you sometime and talk to you in person.

   Before I read your book, I was just one of those women who thought man would appreciate our capability, unyieldingness, toughness, suggestions to them of dos and don’ts. Especially they would admire our bright career and love us because we are no brainless doll and equal to them or even better, superior to them in job.

   I used to be fond of three smart boys and I assumed they were fond of me too as I was no plain and normal girl and have a bright career future. Yet all of them declined me with bad excuses. I was extremely sad, hurt and lost. Still I did not know the real reasons. As a female, I was so ready to be loved, yet nobody loved me whom I loved too. Up to yesterday I had been dreadfully seeking and longing for the heart melting love and fulfillment of repeated dreams without actually knowing how to find.

   But today I’m very glad to tell you now you have taught me the techniques and I am ready to go ahead equipped with both Angelic and Human’s qualities. Of course, I understand that such self-reforming is no easy but I am quite convinced that with your book as my Bible I’ll succeed and be loved by my beloved, as I still think I’m quite special and deserved the best love in this world.

   In addition, I would request your consent to my translation of your books into Chinese language because China has got the largest population and around half of them are females. We Chinese women also have the right, if we wish, to pursue our happiness and.” success which is dependent on our male’s happiness and success and we need to know how to do so. I want to translate your books so that much more kind and sweet hearts will be calmed down and relieved.”
