I think the idea of “no good, terrible husbands” really became popular in the early 90s. I was only a young child then, but I could already hear the criticism in women’s voices as they began to compare themselves to their husbands.
Women thought they were super hard workers and men were lazy.
Women thought men were lust-driven, unfaithful animals and women were romantics who stayed faithful in marriage.
Women thought men were not overly intelligent because they didn’t always listen to their intuitions.
Husband bashing became popular in movies and television. Talk shows were made up with crowds of women who always offered an agreeable nod when yet another woman would bash her husband in front of the camera.
This idea became like a rolling snowball and picked up momentum and followers. By the time I said “I do” in the year 2000, I was already bombarded with women snickering about their “no good, very bad” husbands.
But in the first few years of my marriage, I was blessed to meet a few women who taught me otherwise. They taught me to love my husband. They taught me that husbands are not always horrible. They taught me that men will mess up. They taught me to forgive and communicate.
As time went on, I began receiving emails from women across the globe asking for help. Many of them were married to a no good, very bad husband. My heart broke as I read their emails. Adultery, drunkeness and selfishness pervaded their husbands’ lives and the women and children were suffering the consequences. Other emails were just from women who felt unappreciated by their husbands and truly wanted to walk away from their families and never come back.
I wrote each and everyone of those women and shared with them a small portion of what I wrote in this book.
