I wanted to post this quote from Dr. Phil's show today. It was a show entitled "Wifestyles." This one man was being very critical of his wife. Yes, there were areas where she could improve, but her husband was being extrememly disrespectful in the way he was trying to bring about those changes. She seemed to be a loving, attentive mother to their 3 small children and a wife who was trying to keep the house clean and cook, etc. but he basically wanted a "Stepford Wife."
I think my husband is amazing. He is committed to being a family man who puts God & his family first before lots of other things he enjoys doing. He'll barely complain after teaching an adult class on Sunday morning, leading singing, then leading Life Group that night. He doesn't do all of that each Sunday, but many. I'm proud of him for that. He won't say that he's proud of himself for that....and he shouldn't. I will say it though! He works hard to provide for us and never complains about helping with baths for the girls or cleaning up dishes. He makes me feel special on a very regular basis. He tells me I'm beautiful despite the 50+ lbs. I could stand to lose. He doesn't nag when he can't find clean underwear, he just simply starts a load of whites. He compliments the house when I've spent time cleaning and he'll say, "good dinner" even if it's just soft tacos or spaghetti. He truly felt bad when my friends planned a spa weekend and I didn't go mainly for financial reasons. He encouraged me to go and would have supported it. I chose not to because I knew we truly didn't have the money to spend. I could have found it somewhere, but it wouldn't have been the best decision right now. The important thing is that he supported me in whatever decision I made. Point is, when Dr. Phil made this statement, my eyes filled up with tears and I started clapping before the studio audience did because this is a true statement. I know without a doubt that I am blessed to have Chris as my husband.
Dr. Phil explains how he measures success as a man. “If I know that [Robin] can stand in a room full of 10,000 women, and know in her heart that there isn’t a woman in that room who gets treated better than her behind closed doors, then I have done my job,” says Dr. Phil
