There are actually only two posts in this chapter, and yes, the next chapter involves cooking. Plus Nancy also has a chapter on sex. Last week we saw one of them, it was short. The one I am quoting today is l-0-n-g and I’m going to be quoting it in parts. The gist is that this woman’s husband complained she only dressed up for other folks.
This is a series looking at the marriage advice given in Nancy Campbell’s book ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’.
While packing for a move I have turned up are books, terrible idiotic books filled with toxic advice. One of those books is by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies ‘How to Encourage Your Husband’. I think I ended up with this book in the aftermath of leaving my old church, given to me by one of my former friends that thought it would ‘help’ my marriage since in her eyes my husband leaving our old church meant that I wasn’t doing my job of wife well enough. Reading through this book now I cannot help but laugh at some of the suggestions. The book is entirely written by commenters and comments from Nancy Campbell’s website.
Ask Your Husband
Not every husband desires his wife to wear make-up. Some men prefer their wives fresh-faced. Have you asked your husband how he likes you to look? Many women simply dress to please themselves or mimic the styles of the other women with whom they associate. Does your husband prefer you to wear dresses and skirts or does he love you in the sporty look of pants and jeans? I like to wear my hair up as my long hair drives me crazy while I’m working around the house. My husband likes it down, so before he comes home, I usually take it down and brush out the tangles.
Next week this commenter bashes wearing sweats or fundamentalist cotton jumpers.
