Unhealthy Husband = Unhappy Wife: How to Change the Equation

Unhealthy Husband = Unhappy Wife: How to Change the Equation June 11, 2018

A few years ago I got a letter from a husband whose wife was frustrated with his health. He was struggling with his job, they were behind on their bills and due to feeling so low, he was making poor food choices that gained him 30 pounds in one year and landed him in the emergency room a few times due to his diabetes. To say that it was having a negative impact on their marriage was a huge understatement! He didn’t know what to do because he felt like he was in a rut but he definitely didn’t want to lose his wife!
