It was over 50 years ago I was introduced to a book and a course called "Fascinating Womanhood" by Helen B. Andelin. I can say that the principles she taught were correct and nothing else will be as effective in helping a marriage as learning to be fascinating to your husband. Living all of the principles of the gospel are vital to this success. We have been married 56 years now. My husband and I have had many challenges in life. We adore each other and look forward to being together throughout eternity. Aubrey Andelin wrote a book called "Man of Steel and Velvet" teaching correct principles for a man to know what he can do to be admired by his wife. A woman's greatest desire in life is to be loved, a man's is to be admired.

Her feelings are mostly due to her husband’s insensitivity by his still present admiration of his ex-wife. I am not a jealous person, but I would think much less of my husband because of his callousness.

I don't think the REAL issue here is about over-rating beauty or being jealous of the first wife. This woman is suffering because she is starving for physical affection from her husband, and also a real need for his verbal feedback that she is desirable and beautiful to him. The fact that her husband refers to his first wife's beauty "with a twinkle in his eye" would be a dagger to any wife's heart! If this woman felt truly loved by her husband, I think the conflict would be resolved. I see a lot of pain here, and hope this couple gets some good counselling because they need help to communicate their needs and suffering so that they can help one another.

The twinkle in the eye... That's the problem. Get rid of that, and you will feel closer to him. Not sure how!?!

t is important for her husband to also seek medical evaluation of his health. Not only is sexual dysfunction a possible indicator of other significant health problems, but it can often be treated and improved. In addition there are adaptive ways be close, and these can help him meaningfully show care and affection for her. Just suggesting.
