When I saw Dr. Laura's latest book in paperback on the shelf at Walmart yesterday, I snapped it up. Though I am only a few pages into the book so far (I am reading the Anne series after all!), I wanted to tell you all that what I've read is quite good! Here are a few excerpts for your reading pleasure:
"Chivalry is largely dead, and feminism is the murderer. It soured both males and females on the joy, awe, wonder, excitement, thrill, satisfaction from and mystery of femininity and masculinity. The war between the sexes is an all-out war. Spouses more likely suffer from behavior that resembles sibling rivalry where there is compitition for resources and power verses "giving," and "sleeping with the enemy" where men are the "evil empire" and women are self-centered, complaining, and demanding rather than two folks who thank God every day for the blessing of their marriage partner and the opprotunity to live for something other and outside of themselves."
"People call me eveyday on my radio program with minor complaints, resentments, confusuion, and bitterness in their marriage. With all the different combinations and permutations of people and problems, there are three points that I always try to make:
1. Treat your spouse as if you loved them with your last breath - no matter how contrary to that you might feel at any one moment.
2. Think hard every day about how you can make their life worth living.
3. Be the kind of person you would want to love, hug, come home to, and sacrifice for."
And that is just from the introduction!
