Like many men, I thought that being a good husband meant working hard and providing financial security and a good standard of living. What I did not understand, until I read Maggie’s book, was that by working long hours and working weekends, evenings, and public holidays, together with business trips away from home, I was not giving the emotional security my wife was looking for. Instead, she found this by developing a relationship outside our marriage. I was shaken to the core when she told me that she had stopped loving me and was seeing another man.
Maggie’s book helped me understand what I was doing wrong. I quickly understood that it was me that was wrong and I had pushed my wife into what she had done. Maggie’s personal guidance (by email and online counseling) helped me to understand what our marriage needed and helped change my lifestyle. Maggie, with her insight and guidance, also helped my brain from going into emotional meltdown. My lifestyle change is not dramatic, I still work hard, but I have developed a work/home balance. For example, instead of coming home and going straight to my home office I spend time talking to my wife and helping her prepare dinner. I use modern technology like phone conferencing to cut down my trips. My customers now do not always come first, but none have complained. Thanks to Maggie, I am happy, my wife is happy, and I feel like a teenager in love again!
