So, you found yourself a man. You owned him, you operated him, you dragged him back to your cave and married him -- and now you can't remember why you wanted him! Not to fear, because celebrated relationship expert Regena Thomashauer has returned, ready to turn the walking, talking, care-taking coma that is your marriage into a hot, juicy celebration of love and life
Have you ever felt that your daily responsibilities are taking a toll on your general enthusiasm, your desire for intimacy? Or that you need to ask your husband for permission before you go somewhere or do something? Or that you find yourself angry at him for no real reason? You may be suffering from the Good Wife Syndrome. The Good Wife Syndrome is a common malady characterized by an unnatural drive to sacrifice yourself, organize your married life around your husband's needs, and then blame your bewildered husband for your profound unhappiness.
Mama Gena's Marriage Manual is here to remedy your condition by administering a simple yet tremendously effective antidote: fun. Yes, that's right, fun. Mama Gena wants you to throw out your preconceived notions of what marriage should be and allow yourself to construct a marriage based on your own personal gratification. Because whether it's enjoying a great cup of coffee, taking the day off work, or having great sex, when a woman indulges her desires she inflates her feminine power and has an uplifting effect on everything and everyone around her.
To help you on your quest to revive your marriage, Mama Gena suggests a radical idea: that the community of women around us (the support system she calls our Sister Goddesses) has a greater influence on the outcome of our relationships than the partners we choose. Women's desires can turn dreams into reality, and when women get together, their power multiplies exponentially. Mama shows you how to harness that power and channel it into the daily acts that benefit your love life. She includes dozens of exercises to help you and your Sister Goddess girlfriends focus on fun, praise yourself daily, let go of anger, and learn to appreciate the men you have. Then once you've started practicing these new behaviors, Mama trains you to train your husband -- to communicate without rancor, to welcome his point of view, to reinstate the practice of lust, and much more.
Mama Gena wants you to throw off the shackles of the Good Wife Syndrome and enjoy a marriage that's free of guilt, blame, and obligation. Mama Gena's Marriage Manual will help you craft a partnership that enables you to do more, have more, and be more than you could ever be on your own.
With her usual brash sass, Mama Gena (Mama Gena's Owner's and Operator's Guide to Men) preaches to her fellow Sister Goddesses (women who have joined her School of Womanly Arts or read previous books) about how to achieve a happy marriage. The secret, she says, is learning to create constant"fun" in wedlock. By contrast, traditional preoccupations--with commitment, say, or with being a good wife--are the surest way to douse marital flames."Commitment means absolutely nothing without fun," she reasons, and the"Good Wife Syndrome" is an"insidious poison that seeps into many relationships" when a woman shelves her desires and happiness to serve her husband."The world exists to serve you, to celebrate you, to fulfill you," she declares. A partner, therefore, should be a trained pamperer and an accessory to pleasure--in short, a"best friend that you have sex with." Mama Gena hits on a golden truism when she prescribes that women (or anyone really) must cultivate happiness in the rest of their lives and let it radiate into love relationships. She takes this idea to a hedonistic extreme, though, when she encourages followers to discover their sensuality--even through extra-marital affairs if necessary. Based on her own"research" as wife and mother, and peppered with anecdotes from other Sister Goddesses, her gospel of self only occasionally breaks from its solipsistic celebration to remind readers to"take a moment...and notice how they the husbands are feeling." Otherwise, men take a back seat, for better or for worse, in Mama Gena's irreverent guide to marital bliss.
