Publisher's Summary

Like millions of women, Laura Doyle wanted her marriage to be better. But when she tried to get her husband to be more romantic, helpful, and ambitious, he withdrew - and she was lonely and exhausted from controlling everything. Desperate to be in love with her man again, she decided to stop telling him what to do and how to do it. When Doyle surrendered control, something magical happened. The union she had always dreamed of appeared. The man who had wooed her was back. The underlying principle of The Surrendered Wife is simple: The control women wield at work and with children must be left at the front door of any marriage. Laura Doyle's matrimony shows women how they can both express their needs and have them met while also respecting their husband's choices. When they do, they revitalize intimacy. The Surrendered Wife will show you how to transform a lonely marriage into a passionate union.

Fantastic book

I think we could all do with giving up a little bit of control to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. This is essentially the essence of this story and I think the author explains it very well. As a former control addict and always looking for ways that I can surrender more and be better in my life and I definitely picked up a few fabulous tips from this book. perhaps her best tip is not retaliating in an argument but simply saying ouch Wenstone by the words of another. This leaves them to assess their words and leave them hanging in the air which has a far greater effect than retaliating in anger. Definitely recommended if you are married or intended to get married
