~ From an Anonymous Contributor,
Please forgive the story of a woman who let a happy, wonderful marriage reach the very depths of misery, despair, and near destruction—until Fascinating Womanhood.
We went through all the problems of not enough money, in-laws, and raising three darling children. I felt neglected, unloved, self-righteous, and withdrawn. I was full of self-pity (after all I had done for him), a real martyr and downright ugly.
Because of the pitiful creature I had become, Jim started drinking socially more, playing cards more often and coming home later. I also found a way of diverting my energy by becoming a wedding and party consultant for friends. I acquired even more friends, broader shoulders and tremendous recognition, not only from the brides and their families, but from rabbis, florists, caterers, musicians, and all the people I came in contact with, all except the one man in my life. He admired my talents and accepted the praises and compliments he received about his wonderful wife but oh, he must have resented it all. When I became mentally and physically exhausted after eleven years, I took my husband’s advice and quit.
I then proceeded to concentrate on changing this wonderful man and doing all the horrible things that made us miserable and naturally further and further apart. My psychiatrist made it worse.
The first week of Fascinating Womanhood was magic—like a miracle. I didn’t have to knock myself out worrying where I went wrong and what to do about it. The answers were all in Fascinating Womanhood. What a beautiful world we would have if every girl could take the Fascinating Womanhood course. After 30 years of marriage, I feel that I am an authority on the subject. And I can say that everything Fascinating Womanhood teaches is 100% correct and true.
Thanks to Helen Andelin and my Fascinating Womanhood teacher, my great, big handsome man loves me and knows he has a Fascinating Woman. I humbly thank God and my little sister who found you both.
