Debi Pearl certainly makes some excellent points but it still leaves me with the impression that the success or failure of my marriage rest only on my shoulders. My husband has no need to take responsibility for his attitude, actions or his personal contentment. It is me who must make him happy.
Does anyone else have a problem with this?
I have just finished reading Chapter 4 <em>Thanksgiving Produces Joy</em> and I am sick to my stomach.
O.K. Trash. Michael, Debi’s husband, is too good to take out the trash. Really Debi, are you his slave or is he just too lazy or too high minded to think he is too good to pick up trash? He threw the trash – the bag broke- pick it up – another example of a man not taking personal positive responsibility. And Mike’s punishment for Debi’s practical joke is rape. Or now we use our sex to manipulate men and say its “Holy?”
