After a Ton of Mistakes

Richard Forsyth

~  From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   My husband and I were separated, and our divorce was to be final in two months when I began reading Fascinating Womanhood. We are now back together and very, very happy. We are so happy and so close it is as though we just got married. When I found FW, I discovered so many things I’d done that were wrong. I was completely unaware of these things before.
 
   I used other men as shining examples, my husband withdrew and our communication was nothing I was always too busy with my housework to spend any time sitting in front of the TV with him. I nagged and pushed him, telling him what a cold person he was. I thought I was a wonderful wife, and it was his fault our marriage wasn’t working out. I was unaware of the importance of a man’s ego and pride. I didn’t realize how they need to be admired by their wife.
 
   After reading Fascinating Womanhood, I convinced my husband to come back and give our marriage another try. He wasn’t too willing but did come back just the same. By this time, he was saying he didn’t love me and was happier living without me and my nagging. Now he tells me every day that he loves me.
 
   Each and every day something happens which makes me more aware of the changes Fascinating Womanhood has brought about in me. My husband has become very attentive, very tender and loving, all because I build his ego, accept him at face value, and have given him the freedom he needs. I also have made time away from housework so I can watch TV with him, or go off on the spur of the moment with him, instead of worrying so much about my housework getting done. HE now is helpful around the house—even with dinner and the dishes!
We are so happy now, I never let a day pass without telling him how happy I am with him. I think Fascinating Womanhood should be every woman’s Bible, no matter how happily married she may already be. Fascinating Womanhood can help everyone! I know, because Fascinating Womanhood saved my marriage. I have talked many of my friends into reading it and I am now reading it a second time.

Exchanging Anger for Love and Peace

Chivalry.jpg

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   My husband has had “woman trouble” all of his life First, his mother drove him to distraction and later I did more than my share. She had a genuine contempt for men and succeeded very well in making my husband feel resentful, even when he was a small boy. Naturally, as he grew older these feelings intensified and he reached adulthood with the motto: “Reject and humiliate women before they have a chance to do the same to you.”

   Later, I came into the picture, accustomed to gentleness, daily compliments, and every sort of cheerful kindness. This is the way my father treated my mother and I expected a triple dose (at least!) of this same chivalry from my husband.

   Instead of chivalry, I received ridicule, harshness, neglect and even physical mistreatment. The poison his mother had planted was doing its work. This was before I had heard of Fascinating Womanhood, so I didn’t know how to respond. Instead, I vowed; “I’ll give it back to him as fast as he can dish it out!” And I did!

   At least once a week there was a horrible screaming argument and every day our conversation consisted of nothing but the most barbed sarcasm we could produce. The physical abuse still continued. Once I even found it necessary to call the police but my husband ripped the phone cord out of the wall as I was dialing. Finally, things got so bad I locked myself in our bathroom and tried to slash my wrists. My husband broke down the door and dragged me to the local hospital. I was there for several months during which time I had electric shock treatments.

   Later, we both had psychiatric counseling and my husband improved a lot, but the damage was done—I was anything but fascinating. I kept comparing him to my father, for example.

   Then I began to attend these marvelous classes and now everything is so much happier and simpler. I exchanged my old attitudes for new ones; malice for sympathy, ridicule for understanding and indifference for admiration. I have applied the principles of femininity and gotten chivalry in return.

   The most valuable lesson in the whole of Fascinating Womanhood for me was the section on childlikeness. It is wonderful to be able to channel my anger properly so that I receive from my husband a delighted chuckle instead of a temper tantrum! During the two months of the Fascinating Womanhood course, I have been showered with presents, compliments and attention! Obviously, my husband is convinced that I’m really for him and no longer against him.

Husband Ignores His Children

~ By an Anonymous Contributor, 

   The greatest problem in my marriage was my husband’s lack of understanding of our children. The only time he ever noticed them at all was to scream at them for something they’d done wrong. I also had little respect for myself. Since gaining 40 pounds with my fourth child, this feeling was increasing steadily.
 
   The first four lessons in Fascinating Womanhood depressed me, because I could see that I was failing.  I was failing to understand my husband, to make him No. 1, and was also failing in my role as a homemaker. I also had little self-respect. Each lesson became harder to attend. If I hadn’t worked so hard to earn the money to enroll, I would have dropped out.
 
   Then came the miracle lesson on self-dignity.  I came home rom class this night feeling on top of the world. From this time on, everything seemed to improve for us.
 
   One night after we got to bed, I brought up the problem of his neglecting the children by saying how badly the children needed him. I was also sympathetic with his problems, admired him, and spoke to him in a childlike way.  He began to tell me how he had neglected the children and how he had to spend more time with them and recognize the good they did. Since this time, there is a completely different feeling between my husband and the children. It is wonderful!

   Isn’t it amazing, ladies, how a few sentences can completely remake a man’s attitude!
 
   Before Fascinating Womanhood, when we have been in the company of friends, my husband had made belittling remarks about me in a joking manner. Since Fascinating Womanhood, much to my surprise, when we go out with friends, he compliments me and even opens the car door for me.
 
   I really needed the lesson on femininity! I have improved my dress and do not do masculine jobs around the house. Now my husband offers to do the jobs I used to do, thinking I was helping him. I have seen a wonderful change in both of us since I have started to dress more feminine.

I Just Love Fascinating Womanhood!

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   I love Fascinating Womanhood! It saved my marriage. Let me explain:

   David (my husband) and I were going to get a divorce. I didn’t want one. I’d known David since I was eleven years old and I’ve loved him since then. Anyway, after about a year and a half of marriage, it seemed like we couldn’t even look at each other without saying something cutting. We’d decided to call it quits. I went to live with my mom and he went to live with his and I went to the minister of my church, who sent me to a kind lady, who sent me to Fascinating Womanhood.

   I had always thought women were slaves after marriage and always wanted to be a man, but when I read Fascinating Womanhood I saw for the first time just what a nice thing being a girl could be. Well, I’ve been following the principles of FW ever since. We got back together and our marriage is getting better all the time. We haven’t had a fight in a long time and I can’t say I miss them. I often tell my friends about Fascinating Womanhood and they think it’s great too.

Late for Dinner Husband

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   One of the irritation ruts in our marriage has been the late dinner routine. As my husband is a tax consultant, his appointments frequently run past dinner time.  Around the middle of the month and during tax season, he is always late. Fascinating Womanhood has changed my attitude about this.

   Not long ago, he informed me one morning quite defensively that he would be late for dinner; in fact, not to wait up for him. I replied cheerfully, “Thanks for letting me know early; now I can feed the children extra early and then I’ll fix you and me some steaks when you get here.”

   “Oh, there’s no need to do that,” he said. “I don’t know exactly when I can get home. I’ll just eat a sandwich or something when I get here.”  This was nobly stated and I new he planned to work on into the late evening and skip dinner. I firmly insisted that I would wait and went on with my plans.

   I nibbled a bit as I fixed the children’s dinner and then accomplished a good many chores during the evening. Around nine I decided to fix a bit of a party atmosphere and set the table with candlelight. The steaks were ready to pop in the minute he arrived. When he came in 20 minutes later he was thrilled. As he sat down to enjoy his dinner, he said, “I wonder what all those poor slobs whose wives didn’t take the course are doing tonight!”

   Then I noticed something I’d forgotten—napkins. Before I could get up, he jumped up so eagerly he upset his chair. He always before has let me run to the kitchen for forgotten items. It was then that I realized I’d really pleased my man.
