Dear Dr. Laura,
I am almost finished reading The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. The impact of your advice and instruction is immediate and wonderful! I thought we already had a good thing going, but now my husband is beaming ALL of the time!
One thing my husband and I practice which keeps us on a strong path is our “board meeting” in bed every morning. One of us gets coffee and brings it back to bed, we talk, snuggle, often make love, and connect even if only briefly, or maybe for an hour! It lets us bond well at least once that day, before all the business of life starts, and it is a very important time for us. Also, we are rested and energetic, so being too tired for sex at the END of the day isn’t an issue. Yes, it means setting the alarm earlier, but it is well worth it. My husband starts out every “board meeting” the same way, snuggled into my neck he tells me how much he loves me, that I am beautiful and that I am wonderful. What a way to start every day!
Thank you for your help and insight. You have impacted our lives in a very meaningful way.
All the best,
