~ From an Anonymous Contrubutor,
Marriage for me at age 20 was an arrangement in which I could begin to change my new husband the way I wanted him to be and get out of it all that I could. I had been taught that marriage is a 50-50 proposition. Seven stormy years later I began to view the shambles that I had created in an unhappy, belligerent husband who had retreated into himself, and children that reflected the home situation.
I began to ask what was wrong, and slowly, I began to see the wonderful role that God had created for the woman in being a help to her husband and of his place of leadership in the home. Mental assent was given to the truths I had seen, yet as to how to specifically put them into practice eluded me. Some improvement was made in the home situation, but my husband remained behind his wall, and after a period of time, I became discouraged and began to doubt the truths I had previously seen.
At this point I heard of the Fascinating Womanhood course, feeling that this would perhaps give me some of the answers I longed and prayed to know. Within the six weeks of the course, I put into practice what was being taught and saw my husband really begin to respond. Not only did he come out of his shell, but he began to shower attention upon me, so that by the end of the six weeks, our life together was sweeter and richer than it was on our honeymoon.
Whereas before I was occupied with his faults, now these same faults somehow were points I could actually admire, finding myself in the freshness of a new love for him. He began to tell me he loved me for the first time in years. For the first time, I feel fulfilled as a woman with thanksgiving for the gift of womanhood God has given me.
