~ By an Anonymous Contributor,
My husband and I have been married four years. We’ve both suffered much heartache. His first wife left him and this hurt him badly. They had three wonderful children who live with her. My first husband, unable to face life and its problems, took his own life. I had two children.
We weren’t ready to accept another marriage. I loved my husband but felt he never truly loved me. Most of his love was devoted to his children. I couldn’t allow him this privilege. I started to try to change him. I tore him apart. I built up anger between us. One terrible night, my husband got up from the table and yelled, “Get out!” and walked into the bedroom. I thought I was doomed.
I have had Fascinating Womanhood for years but only glanced at it thinking, “How silly.” But now I read it with prayer in my heart and an open mind. I couldn’t believe the feeling that was stirring in me. I began to understand the power of acceptance for the first time in my life. I couldn’t wait for my husband to get home. When he did, I took him gently by the hand and told him how glad I was he was the kind of man he was. I said I knew I had made mistakes but wanted to change to prove how happy I was, just because of him.
As I talked, I saw him fight back tears. He didn’t say anything, but he didn’t have to. His face and eyes spoke for him.
We are now very happy. Each day is a new experience. He is more wonderful than I could ever have hoped for and I know he loves me now.
