Title: Becoming the Husband Your Wife Thought She Married, (First Editor for Father's Book), Blue Dolphin Press
One of the things I appreciate about my parents is the fact they are still alive--we have had some close calls. But also the ability to grow even when in their 70's. My father embraces his need to improve his love as a husband, not because of external pressure, but because it is important to him. He does not just sit around and whine about the faults of his wife, he tries to be a better husband to his wife. Men, can we agree this is not easy?
Any one that thinks marriage and long term friendship is easy or simple, needs a Brain Scan ..., perhaps multiple Brain Scans. What I appreciate about his respected book is its closeness to reality. It seeks to decrease common male isolation with a desire to pursue greater love and safe connection with a person who should be a best friend -- a spouse.
This work has made me decide to renew my father's father contract for 5 years. If he continues to write this well and behave himself, he will have the option of buying into permanent father status.
