Quote# 31725

I just wanted to write a note to let you know what a blessing your book has been. Months ago my mind was made up to file for a divorce. I was sure that I could live with out my husband and that my girls would be better off with out him for a father. His marijuana use, pornography addiction, pathological lying, and non-support of us had me convinced of it. I was in the process of filing the divorce papers, a couple days before that, my mother gave me “Created to be His Help Meet” and I began reading it. I decided that being a "Christian" woman it was worth while to at least try the Bible's way. I've tried every other way, even followed pastor's advice, my parent's advice, etc., etc., etc, all with the same end result: file for divorce. After reading your book I realized for the first time that God's way is for me to love, respect, honor, and OBEY, no matter what. I now realize that my husband may never change, but that's not what’s important...God wants me to change. For the first time in my 3 years of marriage, I have peace. Right now he lives in another state, with the goal of buying a home and moving the rest of us in with him as soon as possible. All though I only get to talk to him by phone, my whole demeanor and attitude towards him has changed and we have finally stopped fighting. It's been amazing! I finally have a realistic idea of what God created me to be. Thanks for writing such a wonderful book and teaching us younger women. .

So, EW, do you mean to say that you've become a pornography-addicted blunthead too? Sweet. Especially now that your husband is out of state.
Waaaaay cool!

And you think the book is responsible for your happiness? It's got nothing to do with the fact that you don't have to live with him now?


11/29/2007 8:28:25 PM


The only reason you have stopped fighting is because you have willingly become a pudding-headed doormat. He'll never give up his porn or his drugs, and now that you pretty much have agreed to enslave yourself to him, he'll do whatever he damn well pleases and things will get worse.

Your girls, by the way, are going to need some serious therapy in the near future. And they're going to hate you later in life.

Whoa, you can get REMOTE CONTROL Stepford Wives now?

I have to believe that this is a false testimonial. I have to.

11/29/2007 8:52:05 PM


Right! God (or the asshole that wrote the book) want you to be a doormat. But remember, they aren't going to be the one who has to put up with him.

OK...well maybe...but you should ask yourself, is it worth it?

I feel sick for her daughters.

Jake Steel

nice, my submission was accepted.

I'm just dumbfounded that she thinks this is the way her life should be and that she thinks he will change if she lets him walk all over her.

Think of your daughters lady!

How to be a doormat.

Man Called True

Isn't this the sort of thing Pearl Jam's "Better Man" is about?

11/29/2007 10:01:01 PM


Your husband was an awful, drug-abusing, perverted liar who didn't support his own family, and YOU'RE the one who needed to change?

I'm sorry, but what the fuck is wrong with you?

11/29/2007 10:25:50 PM


Please let this be a Poe.

you are a horrible person to do this, not only to yourself, but your daughters

11/29/2007 11:55:29 PM

I don't know if you realise a little problem. He's the PROBLEM, not you.

11/30/2007 12:47:34 AM

Actually, have you never wondered that you may have stopped fighting BECAUSE HE'S IN ANOTHER STATE,not because you have changed?

11/30/2007 12:51:30 AM


"I finally have an idea of what God created me to be! A doormat that my precious dear husband can walk all over." Fixed.

You were on the right track filing for divorce dimwit.

Ugh, I could actually feel my stomach twisting when I read that one. I think I'm going to be depressed for about a week...

11/30/2007 2:17:35 AM


denial and self-delusion.

Once they get back together all the old things will be there and she won't have any self-reliance and self-respect to fall back on.

PS I wonder if fundoes realise the marriage vows aren't actually in the babble, but made up later (than the first heap of fiction!)

He's a typical fundie husband.
