This is an excerpt from the Vissell’s new book, To Really Love a Man.
To really love a man is to choose him over and over again. It’s not enough to say marriage vows one time, though that is certainly important. The relationship is deepened if you let him know often that you would choose him all over again if given the choice.
Things Get in the Way
There are many things that stand in the way of a woman clearly choosing her partner as the most important person in her life.
Your Children – For many women, their children become more important than the man in their life, even if that man happens to be the father of the children.
Having raised three children, I certainly understand this pull to make the children more important. I was a hands-on, stay-at-home mother. I was and still am so in love with our children. When our first child, Rami, was born, I thought she was the cutest thing in the whole world. If I was in a room and she walked in after being away for a while with Barry, I would make such a big fuss over her and go on and on about how cute she was.
