by an anonymous letter writer to Ladies Against Feminism’s Lori Alexander on her personal blog Always Learning – Taking Responsibility For Her Own Unhappiness
Editor’s note: Here’s the final bit. I personally find it disturbing that she’s sometimes praying for her husband ‘through gritted teeth’. To me that indicates that nothing has actually really changed in her marriage, only in her own mind by denial of needs and emotions and forced cheerfulness. We all know how that works out in the long run.
Now I ask him to let me know what I can do for him; how I can help him, I offer to rub his back, or buy him snacks he likes at the store. I leave him notes to find telling him how much we love him and what a great husband and father he is, what a great provider, how creative he is, etc. I pray for him and our relationship every day. I could go on and on but you get the idea. Thank you so much for your blog and please don’t stop writing for us wives. I have gone back and read almost every blog post you’ve ever written because they all spoke to my heart and I wanted these lessons and truths ingrained as deep into my head as they would go. I still have a long way to go and so does my husband, but at least we are on the right track now and I don’t think about filing for divorce every day; I don’t nag, I don’t pout, I don’t drag out arguments for days, I just get over it and love on my husband as much as I can. Even if I have to pray for him and love him through gritted teeth, I make sure I pray for him every day and show my love for him every day.
