I never thought any book could save our marriage, but after eight weeks of Fascinating Womanhood, I’m convinced it has. I was so sure our marriage was over. We just couldn’t get along—so many fights that left us both miserable for days, not knowing from one day to the next when the next blowup would be. We talked about divorce a few times but for the children’s sake we decided to stay together. We were both very unhappy.
I decided to go to work to see if that was what was needed. For awhile it seemed to make things a little better but after nine months I could see were growing even further apart. And I just didn’t care about the house or the children anymore. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror because I didn’t like what I saw. Deep down inside I was searching for something. I wasn’t even sure what it was I wanted. Was it to be free? I was so sick of the hassles of marriage, children, housework, etc. Things were looking pretty bad all around. I’m really surprised, when I think of it, that my husband didn’t leave. I suppose he felt the same way I did all respects.
I decided to quit work and try to straighten things out as much as possible. Little did I know that what I was searching for was right at my fingertips all the time. I had a bad attitude about everything and it must have shown because a friend said she was going to go to classes called Fascinating Womanhood to learn how to be fascinating. She asked me to come along.
I listened to our teacher that first night and all through the class all I could think was, “what a fool I have been for so many years—sixteen as a matter of fact!” I kicked myself over and over for being so self-righteous, thinking that all our problems were because of things my husband had done to me. I decided that if I was to live F.W. I would put my whole heart into it.
Well, to my surprise I found out what a wonderful thing it is to be a fascinating woman. During the first three weeks I could see a change in myself and in my husband. So many good things have happened. I keep saying to myself, “It’s really working. I can’t believe it!” We have been able to face our problems much more easily. Things just don’t seem so bad anymore.
One thing I have noticed is that I’m enjoying life and the things around me. I’m happy to be a wife, mother, housekeeper and all that goes with it. My attitude has changed completely and so has my husband’s. Now, whenever we have a problem that makes us feel down and out, I just go to my husband, wrap my arms around him and tell him I love him and that everything is going to be alright. You wouldn’t believe how he just seems to relax. I’m sure it means a lot to him just to know that I care enough about him to try to be a fascinating woman.
I could go on for a week telling of all the successes I have had. There is one thing for sure. Anyone who thinks there are more important things than a happy marriage and the peace and contentment of a happy home needs to read Fascinating Womanhood. Thank you so much, dear Lord for bring Fascinating Womanhood into my life.
