He ignored the red flags in his relationships because he always wanted to see the best in people.

Eventually, there was no choice but to end the marriage and EJ emerged from what he could only imagine was to be the worst time in his life.

Until his second wife racked up huge amounts of debt and then deserted him with it.

Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the values, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America, often creating struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.”I actually read this book when I was first married.

My mother-in-law purchased it and we passed it around to all of the girls in the family.

But, we all know that on the inside of a marriage, our problems just don’t seem so easily solved.

I had a lot of learning to do when I was first married.By the time he was thirty he found himself with a busy job, a big mortgage, two kids and a wife who was mentally unravelling.She had an affair, admitted it, promised to never do it again … Worst of all, she threatened to take sole custody of the kids if he ever tried to divorce her.Oh, not right away of course, but in due time a man can only take so much. She doesn’t hum-n-haw about important matters and she certainly doesn’t sugar-coat it for our benefit.

I used to play those little mind games of dropping ‘hints’ to my husband and getting upset when he didn’t “get it”.
