~ From an Anonymous Contributor,
For twenty-seven years I never knew what my husband’s plans were, what he was thinking or where he was going. The only way I found out these things was if I overheard him talking on the phone or telling someone else. Since Fascinating Womanhood, I listen. If I am reading I not only lower my book, I close it and give him my complete attention. I stop, I look, and listen! I have been amazed at how he has begun to open up and share. He shares things with me that never in my wildest dreams did I think he would.
Listening to my husband when he talks has done more than anything to bring down the barriers and create love in our marriage. Often he opens up when I just sit quietly with him, saying nothing. I’m just there, available. I’m not in the other room, sewing, or vacuuming. He begin to talk and share his dreams or plans and we both get excited.”
