    Do you see potential for growth and change? If you can admit that you frequently or sometimes control, nag, or criticize your husband, then it is up to you and you alone to take the actions described here to restore intimacy to your marriage and dignity and peace to yourself.

    When I urgently exclaimed that we should have turned right instead of left while riding in a friend's car who knew perfectly well how to get to our destination, I reasoned that I was trying to save time and avoid traffic. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Trusting is magical because people tend to live up to our expectations. From my point of view, if he would just be more ambitious at work, more romantic at home and clean up after himself, everything would be fine. You would most likely help them. It is not a book about submissiveness.
