Women who fault the book[s] should stay single [more single men for Rules Girls!]

It's amazing to read such sharp criticisms from woman who have no interest in 'the Rules'. The books are constantly being reviewed by 'non-Rules' women. Funny thing is there was an article from 1954 - called 'The Good Wife' - [it recently surfaced on the net]. T...
It's amazing to read such sharp criticisms from woman who have no interest in 'the Rules'. The books are constantly being reviewed by 'non-Rules' women. Funny thing is there was an article from 1954 - called 'The Good Wife' - [it recently surfaced on the net]. The men in our office were circulating it for fun - to get a few women spun up - I personally didn't have a problem with the Good Housekeeping article from the 50's nor do I have a problem with any of the Rules - the men exclaimed with laughter 'if women did half this stuff in the article - the divorce rate would drop significantly'. That's right. Lazy, selfish, feminist, women who hate the Rules are exactly the ones who don't do well in relationships with men - who diss on the Rules. I'm a Rules girl - soon to be a Rules wife. My man treats me like a queen due to my self containment - I have the Rules to thank for this - I also have a wonderful marriage, a happy husband, and a less stressful marriage - due to the fact I practice the common courtesies preached through out the Rules Books - Hey - the women who protested about the books - if your mate treated you the way the books ask you to treat him - wouldn't you be happier?

There should have been a happier ending for the authors than they have in real life with respect to their own marriage. Men with intelligent adorable and accomplished wives may find the book irritating. The book suggests that women should become invisible partners. I understand that lots of women overdo their liberation in our beloved USA because the court system favors them in the event of a divorce. The authors may therefore be trying to tell some women to let go of their sharp razor edge and irrascible behaviors. But to expect a woman to relinquish her sense of dignity will choke the life out of any healthy man. The book may end up making women feel more depressed and inferior than any male chauvinistic book ever written on marriage. In turn, most depressed down-trodden women in a free country like ours may abandon their marriage, once they realize that the marriage and its rules are responsible for their depression. The book may have a negative effect on marriages and on a woman's emotional well being if its rules are followed.

    Working On A Marriage

    Good recommendations and fun ideas. Nitty gritty truth included. Grin and bare it (or maybe bear it) but could make a huge differnece in relationships. Don't forget prayer in family life as a guiding strength to build lasting affects as well.
