Many of the reviews remind me of conversations with people following Atkins and eating only meat. They glossed over the "eat vegetables" part.
What is so bad about accepting your husband as he is, appreciating him and admiring him? What is so bad about acting feminine? What is so bad about taking some responibility for your own actions and giving him the freedom to take responsibility for his.
This book has a lot of important principles in it. Read it with an open mind, sincerity and love.
What I learned:
~ Elevating my husband made him want to do more for me
~ Nurturing my husband's masculinity (per the book's instructions) resulted in a happier, more helpful spouse
~ Putting his needs above mine did wonders for our marriage--he started treating me like he did when we were dating (more than a decade ago)
~ I learned that, to be treated like a queen, I first need to help my husband realize he is king, rather than one of my simpering subjects.
Why the book (in concept) turned me off before I read it:
~ I didn't want to have to learn how to care for HIS psyche; shouldn't he just automatically worship me?
~ I feared that "submitting" to my husband meant elevating him above me in some way
Why this book's method WORKS:
~ Submission doesn't mean elevating man above woman. It means acknowledging that he is supreme in his sphere, while woman reigns in HER sphere. Both are equals.
~ The masculine pride of a man is easily crushed when the woman tries to run the man's sphere for him; he is prone to flee/tune out when this happens
~ When the woman takes charge of HIS sphere, the man tunes out and goes in search of a place where his powers are needed (even to another woman or home)
~ By developing our separate (masculine and feminine) spheres, we elevate each other, and the man feels like king of his domain
~ Men will fight to the death to stay in a situation where they feel empowered, needed, and loved. They run away from domains where don't feel this way.
It tells me why my husband says and does the things that he does and helps me to help him. Women want to be treated with respect and honor and dignity and this book shows you how to achieve this on a kind and honorable level. It is not a book about being a doormat and it does not say that you have to give sex on demand as one of the reviewers mentioned. It simply says that when we are kind and loving to others, they will be kind and loving to us.
The only thing I found difficult was the part about not being employed. I agree that there is no more noble a career than being a homemaker, but in todays expensive world, there are often times, no way around it and if you're going to have to work, it might as well be something that you enjoy and if you have to go to school for that then so be it.Read more ›
