I Was a Three Time Loser

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Reader

“The man I wanted to marry had two previous marriages and I had three. Last November we were about to break off, due to my sarcasm and critical attitude. During this time I had been praying daily to discovering what my mistakes were, so that I might correct them before it was too late. Then one day I saw Fascinating Womanhood listed in a magazine and I had a strange compulsion to order it. I knew somehow this would be the answer to my prayers, and it certainly was!

Within a day after I read Fascinating Womanhood and began applying it, he began putting his arm around me again while we watched TV. Within two weeks, he told me has he held me tenderly that he’d begun to love me lately like he used to. I was so happy that I burst into tears. That was in November. We were married in January and have been happy ever since. Now he brings me flowers—he just came in an hour ago with a beautiful of of azaleas for no apparent reason. That’s twice he’s done that. No one ever brought me flowers before. I thought you would like to know what F.W. has done for a three-time-loser.”

What Have you Got to Lose?

~ From an Anonymous Contributor,

I first heard of Fascinating Womanhood when our marriage was avalanching to a sad ending. This after thirty-two years of marriage and six children. My husband went to book stores to purchase one of your books, but it had to be specially ordered as they had none in stock. He gave it to me after he had read it and underlined what, to him, was so important and obviously my shortcomings. I read it and thought resentfully, ‘What about my feelings? Don’t they count?’

The situation went from bad to worse and I rented an apartment. When I came home from work I had time to think and relive my life. I went through a tremendous soul-searching period, and just about the time I was ready to accept the blame for our problems, I glanced up to see my Fascinating Womanhood book practically beckoning me to read it. I began that night to read it over again…slowly and with an entirely new outlook. There it was! Why couldn’t I have seen it before? I silently thanked God for His guidance and for F.W.

I didn’t have to act the part; I felt it and my life has changed. I am back home with my husband and we have found that ‘old love’ definitely renewed and we both look forward to a bright future. Tell the women from me not to wait until it’s too late to apply the teachings. There is no age limit for these principles. What have you got to lose? Believe me, it works!

My Husband is Still Going Through with the Divorce

~ From an Anonymous Contributor,

My husband is still going through with the divorce which he applied for two months ago. It has been 3 ½ months since he left me and told me that he had never loved me. He wanted me to find someone to make me happy.

We were married 21 years and had many problems and heartaches. Before Fascinating Womanhood, I had criticized my husband and belittled him so much that he became a shell of a man without any potency.

Since Fascinating Womanhood, he does things for me without my even having to ask. He even stayed overnight and slept on the sofa. He talked about many things and kissed me more passionately than he ever has. He talked about the car he is buying that I will be able to drive. He said he would take me on a weekend fishing trip and even asked me to go on a two-week vacation with him this summer.

Although these things are beautiful, I still have to work on my health and to become a much better person. He has to have more time away from me to think things out and get rid of all the bitterness and resentments which have come between us.

There are no promises, and if I just don’t push him he may be back in six months or even a year. I have faith that things will turn out for the best.

Thanks to your class, my views on life have completely reversed themselves. I am enjoying life again.

This couple reconciled about two months after the letter was written. They report that they have never been happier.

The Leaky Roof

Richard Forsyth

~ From an Anonymous Contributor,    

   Fascinating Womanhood lets us stomp our feet and shake our heads. Oh, this is fun!
Getting husbands to do things has been next to impossible, so I thought. By being impatient and nagging, I accomplished nothing! I became a “fix-it-man” in our home, mowing lawns, painting, plug fixing, furniture moving, etc.

   After many days of rain our living room roof leaked along a ten foot section, so trying to let go of the man’s role, I got pots, pans and baking trays and lined the leak along the living room floor.  The family couldn’t cross the room without stepping between the pots and pans. It was hard not to complain or nag and even harder not to go up and repair the roof myself. I bit my lip and held my tongue, which was a record for me.

   That night, I was awakened by what I seemed to be a loud noise. I leaped out of bed, not turning on the lights and rushed into the living room. I stepped on the edge of one of the larger pans of rain water, splashing cold water up my leg and all over my night gown. Thanks to Fascinating Womanhood, I remembered I wanted to be loved and worshiped and not to nag.

   I went outside to check the noise and, finding nothing, returned to the living room, stepping onto another pan, splashing cold water up the other leg and again on my gown. Thanks to Fascinating Womanhood, childlikeness was filling my brain.

   Carefully, I walked back to the bedroom, switched on the lamp and there lay my sweet husband peacefully asleep. I called my husband’s name gently. After awakening him, I stomped my foot, shook my head and said “This is for the wet leg and a dripping nightgown.”

   Startled, he asked what was going on. In a pathetic, appealing voice, almost crying I said, “I’m dripping wet with rain water from a leaky roof.” I said no more. He was too shocked to say another word.

   In the morning I was awakened by foot-steps on the roof. I peeked out and there on the roof was my husband making the necessary repairs. When he came in, I bragged on his muscles and how strong he is and that I didn’t really know about repairs like he did. He had a delightful smile on his face.

   About a week later, hurrying down the highway, I noticed my husband’s truck hailing me down. He had been home and missed me. He presented me with a kiss and a gift—the most beautiful, gorgeous white chrysanthemums with red satin hearts in the center of each bloom. I was so thrilled I could hardly say a word.

   You see, he had not been in the practice of giving gifts nor remembering special days. He had not been brought up this way and wasn’t aware of how much women love being remembered. The card attached had a lovely message, “See dear, I don’t forget, Love, Ron.”

   We hold the keys to our own happiness.

My Husband Noticed a Change

~ From an Anonymous Contributor, 

   I just wanted to give you my overall feelings about the Fascinating Womanhood course and what it has done for me.

   My husband is a rarity, I believe. He has always, through our 12 years of marriage, told me he loved me, complimented me and has always been a good provider, protector and head of the house. The difference now is with me.

   Although I have been very happily married and would not have traded my married life for anything else in the world, there is now an inner peace and happiness which I had not experienced before. Fascinating Womanhood has helped me see the importance I should place on my role as wife and mother and just how important that role is. Now I can begin relaxing and enjoying my role. I can quit worrying about the things that aren’t mine to worry about.

   My husband has noticed the change and has told me. In fact, the other day he said, “You look radiant.” I have to give the Lord thanks for leading me to this point in my life. God bless you and keep you.

Man Bashing

Richard Forsyth

Forsyth-010ALT.jpg

~ By Dixie Andelin Forsyth

   It’s amazing how many of us think that sharing with others the weaknesses of the man in our life is okay. Many women mistakenly believe that trusting friends with the faults of our men will help bond us together and feel understood. But this can be dangerous for our relationships. It’s a breach of loyalty and means our men aren’t really accepted at face value. And once spoken to others, you never know who will hear your words, who they will tell, and what narrow opinion they could very well form of him. And what you said about him could get back to him.  It could cause him to build up and fortify his wall of reserve even thicker than before.

   When you marry or commit to a man, he trusts you with his strengths, but also his weaknesses. You probably didn’t see them before you got married because he was more careful then, and so were you. Marriage reveals a new level of intimacy, and therefore new knowledge of each other--the good with the bad. 

    Women love feeling connected and bonded to female friends. But disparaging talk about husbands undermines all relationships involved. 

    Get into another habit: one of man boasting, or constantly looking for opportunities to let him and others know how wonderful he is and how proud you are of him. Others will think our husbands are wonderful and it could even get back to him with positive results. It also could encourage our friends to find positive things to say about husbands.
 

I Hated Marriage and Wanted a Divorce

Richard Forsyth

D18_10_439_0004_600.jpg

~ From an Anonymous Contributor,

   “I’m not very good at expressing myself but I must tell you how Fascinating Womanhood has changed my life. My husband and I married very young. I wanted so badly to be a good wife, the kind you read about in the love stories. I wanted to be fascinating and loving and soft. Only I came from a family where my mother hated housework, cooking, kids—everything womanly. I had no one to copy or to show me how to be who I longed to be. I didn’t fit in my mother’s world or in the feminist world. I looked at marriage with both wishfulness and fear.

   I wanted marriage but I wanted a special kind of marriage, one where outsiders could just feel the love surrounding my family. I didn’t want the kind of marriage I found with all my neighbors and friends with the wife yelling at the man what to do, always yelling, screaming and demanding her way. I wanted more than just a man and woman living under the same roof. Only I felt that maybe the only people who live like this are the ones in children’s bedtime stories.

   Then I met my husband. He was young, but he had good basic qualities and soon he had my heart. I thought with this boy I could have the kind of marriage I dreamed of. Anxious to be a wife, homemaker, and mother we started a family right away. I got pregnant within a few months, just in time to see my dreams all falling apart.

   My husband spent most of his time with the boys. When he was home he was always drinking, yelling and slapping me around. He never asked me to do anything. He ordered. I feared him and almost hated him but I came from a family who believed: ‘You made your bed, you lie in it.’ I had nowhere to go and a baby due any day. I felt helpless, trapped, and a complete failure as a woman.  Where had things gone wrong?

   When my baby was born my husband started to change, and I could see part of that person I once loved return. He was a fabulous father, but things didn’t change between us. He still slapped me around, wouldn’t come home every night till ten or later from being out with the guys, and would pick fights when he was home. This went on for four and one-half years. I hated being married. I hated being a mother, and I hated men. I wanted a divorce. My dream of marriage was just that, a dream. I tried so hard to be a good wife. How had I failed?

   One day I was reading the paper and saw an article about Fascinating Womanhood. They described a marriage just like my dream! Maybe, just maybe, I could fit in with them. Maybe they could help me find who I am. I had hit bottom. How I hoped this was my answer to my prayers. I was so hopeful I rushed down to a bookstore to buy a copy of F.W. weeks before classes began. Once I started to read, I knew this was the answer to my prayers! And I decided to start then to live this way.

   All this time I had blamed my husband for our bad marriage. How wrong I was! Bit by bit I started to change, not him—myself! I bought some new, feminine dresses in soft colors with full skirts, let my nails grow, put a perm in my hair. So much for the outside. Now I had to change the inside. I started looking at just my husband’s good points. He was a good father, generous with money, a hard worker, and a good leader. I could go on and on, and I did—to him.

   When I got up in the morning I tried to look at the good things that would happen that day, such as the pretty wild flowers growing or the beautiful sunset. I thought of the little things I could do to make my husband happy such as cooking what he liked or writing love notes to him, telling him about the things he’s done or said that made me happy. When he wanted to talk, I made a point of forgetting all else to listen to him, even if it meant turning off the dinner, or stopping folding the clothes. I did these and much more, trying to show him in all ways, at all times, that I accept him as he is as a man and a leader.

   I have been living Fascinating Womanhood for a year and a half now, and you would never believe we are the same couple. He takes me out to lunch, fishing, and almost everywhere he goes. Lots of times we just go for drives or window-shopping. And where before he never bought me presents, even on my birthday or Christmas, now I get presents just because he loves me. Now he enjoys buying me clothes and things for the house. Would you believe we are even thinking about having another baby, an absolute no-no just eighteen months ago! Thanks to Fascinating Womanhood, I don’t dream of a beautiful warm, friendly, and loving marriage. I’m living it.”

He Came Alive

~ From an Anonymous Contibutor,

“Fascinating Womanhood is so foreign to my nature that it was difficult to apply. I’m loud, obnoxious, and dominating. My husband and I separated. Now I see why. Then I didn’t. The children were the ones who suffered most. I have a teenager who was absolutely crushed by it. My husband left for another woman, left his job, everything for her. I couldn’t understand it.

   Then a friend gave me Fascinating Womanhood to read. I let my hair grow, let my nails grow, lost twenty pounds, and bought dresses. I’d always been heavy with short, slicked, black-brown hair. I went from a fourteen to a perfect size nine. I bleached my hair like it was when I was young and got a new feminine hairstyle.

   When my husband came to visit he didn’t even recognize me. The children and I applied Fascinating Womanhood. The funny part is that everything I said was the truth. I hadn’t realized what I had. He really is a marvelous man. I just never told him that before.

   The other woman—he gave her up in a week. He has never needed her since. We are very happy and so are the children. Fascinating Womanhood has saved so many lives. I also think my husband’s life is much improved, and I have really benefited.

   I quit work so we could have more time together. I don’t know any knowledge that can change a person’s life so much, can cause so much happiness for so many. I want to thank the author. I owe her so much.”

He Came Alive

   Incredible!!! I am so grateful for Fascinating Womanhood. The first week I began reading the book back in December, he came to me and said he felt like he was coming alive and couldn't understand it. I was doing the same things I had always done in our marriage. He knew I had always put a lot of effort in and he wanted to feel alive the way he was starting to feel, but had felt blocked. I confided I had started to study Fascinating Womanhood. He said, a little deflated, "I'm being manipulated?" I said, "No, I'm learning immutable laws governing my femininity and how to keep them. You are just feeling the natural effect of that." He told me "I'm on a lover's high!"
