The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands by Dr. Laura Schlessinger

When I got married, seven years ago, I read a lot of books on marriage.  Some were really good.  As this is our anniversary month, I would like to introduce some of them to you.  I personally think these books are good to read before marriage too.  Even if “Mr./Mrs. Right” is no where in sight yet.

I listen to Dr. Laura on the military radio station Sunday evenings.  She is quite sharp in replying to callers, so my soft heart only allows me to listen to a little of the show.  However, even in that short time, I learn something.

Dr. Laura has very clear standards for life.  She holds on to these standards very tightly.  And her standards make real sense.  In a world where grey is so much more prevelant that black or white, it is refreshing to listen to someone who knows what she believes, and lives by it (at least I hope she does!)

I was introduced to this book through a Christian internet radio station, and was a little surprised to see it there.  But, I bought it, and I like it.  This book is a little unusual in that it SUPPORTS the husband.  So many books around say that the husband needs to get his act together and understand his wife.  He needs to learn her language.  He needs to change, etc.  Well, many of us wives may feel that way, but waiting around for our husbands to change may take a life-time of frustration and bitterness.  Instead, we can be the catylist for change in our marriage by learning our husband’s language, and learning to understand him.

Thus the title, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands.

This book is easy to read, remember and apply!
