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. I didn’t know what to do. Then it got so bad that 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 two years, I found Fascinating Womanhood. 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 six 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 a month before he started asking what he had to do to come back to us and then I poured on Fascinating Womanhood thick and heavy. I told him that if he would give up the other woman, that I wanted another chance to prove myself to him.
We started dating and he was with us practically all the time. About three months later I dropped the divorce and he moved back home.
