3 Reasons You Should NOT Gossip About Your Husband (and One Reason You Should!) March 6, 2018

Not long ago I was in another city at a women’s event and heard a group of women near me talking over lunch:

Friend 1: “Tyler has been working so late, I never see him anymore. He’s only there for sleep and sex.”

Friend 2: “Girl, you don’t have to take that. I told Nate the other day that if he wasn’t home by 7pm from now on, he could forget about any action.”

(Laughter)

Friend 3: “You’re lucky! I wish I could get some action! I’ve tried everything but that man just says he’s worn out. No testosterone.”

Friend 2: “Maybe we can siphon off some of Nate’s testosterone and give it to him!”

Friend 1: “Oh, wouldn’t that be every woman’s dream? Now THAT invention would make millions of dollars on Shark Tank!”

Friend 3: “That and a remote control to make him do the dishes when you want him to!”

They were howling with laughter by the end—and I was so sad. Because with all the research studies I’ve done on men, women and marriages over the years, I knew something these women clearly didn’t. There are 3 important reasons you should NOT gossip about your husband—and only one reason you should:
