The Generous Wife tips are designed to be a daily reminder to be generous and kind to your husband. They also form a pool of ideas that can help women come up with ways to creatively bless their husbands. Today I’m going to do something I very rarely do. I’m going to suggest something … for your husbands. If (I repeat If) your husband is a reader and you think he would benefit from this resource, please suggest it to him.
My husband (The Generous Husband) recommended this book in one of his tips and I am including the tip here.
… I want to plug an e-book. Yes, it’s an affiliate link, but I refuse to plug something unless I feel it’s useful and better than average. Getting Lucky with the Wife … Has Nothing to Do With Luck At All from Sarah Baron of Anonymous8 is such a book. Let me share a short section to give you an idea if this is for you:
Who is “Lucky” For?
This book is not for everyone. It is for men in marriages where both partners are deeply committed to the marriage and each other. It’s for men who feel there isn’t enough physical intimacy in their marriages right now, and would like to work with their partners to fix that problem. It’s for men who are self-aware enough and secure enough to look at both sides of the issue: what they could do better, and how to help their wives think about the issue differently in a loving, compassionate way.
Let me add that this book is not about sexual technique, but rather about what a woman needs to be able to care about, much less want, sex with her husband. In my mind this book is dead on – it’s hitting the primary reason many wives don’t want and/or don’t enjoy sex. It explains the situation clearly, gives great suggestions for changing things, and finish with a way to make a plan of action.
