Life Was Boring
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.
