Perhaps my husband would enjoy if just once in a while I would keep my big mouth shut and turn to him adoringly and say, "Whatever you think. Maybe not.

But I know he would appreciate it if I didn't always tell him he took the wrong turn and the slowest route. He might appreciate it if I didn't tell him how to talk to the waiter, what to order, and the exact amount of the appropriate tip.

Our husbands want to know they have our respect, trust, and, as Laura Doyle suggests, every time we control, direct, or even worse, criticize them, they know they don't. And it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

As with children. If we don't expect our husbands to succeed, they probably won't unless he's got a very contrary personality and responds well to reverse psychology! The nitpicking, the correcting, the "I know a better way" attitude is destructive on many levels — to the husband personally and to the marriage. I know that I don't enjoy spending time with people who are always telling me I'm wrong — either directly or by implication.

And this situation sure doesn't augur well for one's intimate life. It doesn't encourage closeness and desire. We're only doing it to help them. But most husbands don't experience it like that.

To them, it's an attack. To them, it's emasculating. To them, it's depressing and destructive. There's nothing liberated or egalitarian about being critical. Our husbands are not our project, our work in progress, a piece of clay for us to mold.

And our husbands are not children. It always annoys me when women refer, half-jokingly, to their husbands as one of their biggest children.

My 2 cents. Another part of her book, which was the point where I decided I wasn't going to continue reading it anymore was when she wrote on p.

Instead, say with as much kindness and sincerity as you can muster, "Whatever you think" when he is telling you his ideas If he thinks the kids should learn how to ski, and this sounds dangerous to you, say, "Whatever you think. Women have motherly intuition for a reason.

When our son was 2 years old, he developed sleep apnea due to enlarged tonsils. At the time, we didn't know it was sleep apnea. His pediatrician said to give him time to grow out of it because they usually outgrow it by age 5.

When I brought this up to my husband, he'll be the first one to tell you he didn't think it was anything serious. When age 5 came, I realized that something was wrong - he had a lot of delays, including delayed growth and it was was due to the sleep apnea that went unnoticed, which was causing him to be deprived of oxygen during his sleep.

After our son caught a cold and I actually laid next to him in bed and heard him sleeping and knew something was wrong with his breathing, I brought it up again to my husband and he still didn't think anything was really wrong. But I knew better. I took him in to get a sleep study done and he ended up having really bad sleep apnea and had to remove his tonsils and adenoids.

What if I did nothing because I didn't trust my gut and agreed with him it was nothing? So again, where do you draw the line? I'm not trying to point fingers, but I am trying to point to the fact that we're all human and prone to make mistakes. It's irresponsible to our children to not advocate for them if we feel like something is wrong, even if it means disagreeing with our husband.

Trust me, a husband who loves his wife will hear her heart. It's not being a nag when you expose your fears and concerns with him.

When I told my husband, in tears, that I truly believed something was wrong with our son, he told me to do what I thought was best. He did that because he trusts me as a mother and because he's a great man who actually does listen.

I totally disagree with her position that "no matter how dangerous" you perceive something to be, that wives need to always stay silent. That can be detrimental. Then again, she had some major control issues she exposed in this book so maybe that's why her pendulum is swung in the most extreme direction.

Not allowing her husband to plan a date? Telling his barber how to cut his hair? What to wear? Come on - now of course, if you're doing that, you need to change. I definitely agree for the most part that we shouldn't correct, criticize, belittle, interrupt, control, etc..

I guess I should've read more of the 1 star reviews before downloading. My bad. Trust me, I understand submission.

I am a Christian and know my role as a helper to my husband. I understand that because I'm home most of the day, I am primarily responsible to take care of the household work. But my husband cares enough to help often.

I respect my husband very much. I got this book to learn more about surrendering over a particular situation, but this book was a complete waste of money and time. I can't even finish reading it. If you found it blessed your marriage, more power to you. I feel like it wasn't the book I was looking for. You'll get more from reading what the Bible says about husbands and wives: Husbands, love your wives. Wives, respect your husbands. But respect doesn't mean becoming a brainless, mute doormat.

Want my opinion? Don't waste your time or money. I'm off to download a book a friend highly recommended by the top marriage therapist in Israel called Garden of Peace - there's a book for the man and one for the woman, written by Rabbi Shalom Arush.I will say that I've gotten a lot out of the book and am using some of what I've learned, to good effect. I definitely think it is needed to show success stories of the surrendered approach.

Original Title. The Natural Way. I think this book offers good advice on respecting and getting along with people in general, as well as husbands. A New York Times bestseller, this controversial guide to improving your marriage has transformed thousands of relationships, bringing women romance, harmony, and the intimacy they crave. But admitting that you hurt rather than lashing back curtails the fighting because it reminds your husband that his job is to love you, not to hurt you.

Cynthia Richards. But all the wacky and offensive things in it made the good things harder to trust and accept. Delicates flowers that can't handle being told the steaks are burning when that comment comes from a woman clearly should have unchecked power in the household!
