I remember a few years ago when I first discovered Fawn Weaver’s excellent website– Happy Wives Club. It was simple and focused on one goal–to find one million happy wives worldwide.
She was tired of hearing women tear down their husbands on TV and in the movies. Women were always cast as the “wise ones” in the relationship, with the husband being nothing more than a sidekick for a good laugh. I couldn’t agree with her more, and I have expressed similar disgust for the lack of respect given to men, in general and husbands, specifically.
Well, today it is my delight to tell you about Fawn’s new book appropriately titled, Happy Wives Club. She traveled the world to interview happy wives and hear from them what has made them so. I just finished the book this morning, and it is excellent!
Fawn traveled to 12 countries on 6 continents in the span of 6 months. You will feel as if you’ve traveled with her to Canada, Croatia, South Africa, Italy, England, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines and Argentina to name a few. Her descriptions of the locations are vivid allowing you to see, smell and experience the country through her eyes. I honestly didn’t want to trip to end, it was that good.
But the best part was the common thread found in each marriage she interviewed. I’m not going to spoil it by telling what she discovered, but suffice it to say you must read this book! You will be inspired and challenged. You will laugh and cry. You will empathize with the struggles and separation Fawn experiences while traveling without her husband, Keith. You will appreciate the time you’ve been given with your own spouse, and not take it for granted.
Happy Wives Club is like an energy drink for your marriage. Every sip will infuse fresh inspiration to work harder, love more deeply and to enjoy every minute you have together. Make this book the top of your reading list for 2014–your spouse will thank you.
Bonus: We’re giving away a copy of Happy Wives Club. All you have to do to enter is share with us one word (or more if you must) that you believe is the secret to a lasting and happy marriage. We’ll draw a name randomly using random.org on Friday of this week. For two entries, share this post on your blog, Twitter or Facebook page as well, and tell us in your comment that you did so. Good luck!
