102: Should You Fake it Sometimes?

Update: 2021-11-02


On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast we’re talking about whether you should fake it. When I say “fake it,” of course I’m talking about pretending you respect your husband even if you’re not feeling it because he doesn’t seem to deserve your respect. Wait, what did you think we were going to talk about? Oh, faking it in the bedroom!  Funny you would bring that up while we’re talking about respect because respect and passion are so thoroughly intertwined, in my experience. But what if you’re struggling to muster respect when your husband has made so many bad choices or is so hostile or is always disappointing you or has hurt you so much? Then what? I’ll share how to bring back the capable, considerate guy you married and get to relax more while you’re at it.

My guest Amber’s husband was so full of anger and rage that she and her son lived with a lot of verbal and emotional abuse. Affection and physical intimacy were scarce, but there was plenty of name-calling, yelling and disrespect. She was overwhelmed at the prospect of fixing her marriage. But she took action, which she’s going to tell us all about, and today they are happy and constantly telling each other “I love you” and sharing gratitudes. Even the relationship between her husband and son is fun and kind. She’s going to describe exactly how she transformed her marriage into something beautiful.

The Worst Relationship Advice of the Week is about what to do if you’re married to a narcissist, according to one misinformed clinical psychologist. Wait until you hear this uninspiring and unoriginal bit of unwisdom.
