Help for the married? I have read not only this book but also "The Rules" by Ellen Fein - I have been in my current relationship for 8 years...is it really possible to become The Bitch and apply "The Rules" at this stage? Any advice? Ilze, South Africa
Sure it is. In fact, since you have been with him for so long, and he has become used to your ways and thinks you are so "predictable," the more of a shock it will be once you finally give the impression that you have had enough. He has obviously grown WAY to comfortable and sure of you. Basically, I would ask yourself how you would act if you were single. Start dressing like a single woman and enjoying your life. Don't wait around for his phone calls, his approval or his reassurance. Start acting like you are getting that attention and assurance from someone else. He will notice the difference.
