Susan Black, On the Need For Wives to See Their Husbands as Mere Men

Image result for susan black marriage is hard“One of the greatest gifts wives can give their husbands is to relieve them of the responsibility of being everything to them. Husbands cannot do it. It is too high a standard. They are, after all, just men. They haven’t been given a witty romantic script, and they cannot produce a perfect ending in just less than two hours. They live in real life, and they have real-life weaknesses and foibles. They have annoying habits and inexplicable idiosyncrasies – just as we do. Dearest wives, we must grant permission to our husbands to be imperfect.” (Susan Black, Marriage is Hard)
