~ By an Anonymous Contributor,
I believe that Fascinating Womanhood can fill a need that has been absent from our lives for a long time. It teaches a feminine identity that many girls did not learn while growing up. Equality for all is a fine ideal, but men still desire a feminine woman who knows her role and will not assume his.
For several years I spent a great deal of time and money with counselors, trying to find the answers to my own marital problems. The problems revolved around sex, but after reading FW I discovered that the true issue was my competitiveness. My husband admired my spirit but did not want me to compete for his role in our home.
I had been raised in a masculine role and did not see that my husband was fighting for his very identity with me. In fact, I rebelled vigorously against Fascinating Womanhood principles for a time. Then I decided to try a little admiration and began to tell my husband how well I thought he managed our money. When I felt and saw the dramatic changes in his attitude, I could not ignore any longer what I knew to be true. I must learn to have a feminine identity.
It is difficult to learn new ways after a lifetime of competing with men, but I feel that it can be done. I am proud of my new ways of handling both my husband and children and I am excited about my new appearance. People have noticed and commented on it and I am enjoying being a woman for the first time in my life.
