Now the rebuttal. First the wives got together, started talking about their husbands, compared notes and war stories, and got a big kick out of sharing them with Merry Bloch Jones, who published her findings last season in I Love Him, But... Well, now it's the husbands' turn. And if any wife complained that her husband never paid attention, she was wrong. The companion volume to I Love Him, But..., with over 100,000 copies in print, I Love Her, But... is a funny, revealing take on what it really means to be happily married--from the man's point of view: "She never tells me that she wants to make love. She lowers her chin, stares at me and blinks. And keeps on blinking."--Len, Tampa, FL. "She does whatever the kids do. Rollerblade, skateboard, bodysurf. . . . I hope this stops when they start dating."--Nelson, San Francisco, CA. "My wife doesn't function well without a lot of accessories."--John, New York, NY. "All she has to do is look at me and I know what she's thinking. She doesn't have to say a word, but I know she's nagging me, and I know what about. Nobody's uttered a syllable, but we're off. Now I understand what my father meant when he used to tell my mother, 'Don't look at me in that tone of voice.'"--Frank, Malvern, PA. "She turns to me and, in all seriousness, asks, 'What was I just going to say?'"--Leon, Washington, DC
