Description

Product Description

A New York Times bestseller, this controversial guide to improving your marriage has transformed thousands of relationships, bringing women romance, harmony, and the intimacy they crave.

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 model for 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.

Compassionate and practical, The Surrendered Wife is a step-by-step guide that teaches women how to:

· Give up unnecessary control and responsibility
· Resist the temptation to criticize, belittle, or dismiss their husbands
· Trust their husbands in every aspect of marriage—from sexual to financial
· And more.

The Surrendered Wife will show you how to transform a lonely marriage into a passionate union.

Amazon.com Review

Self-proclaimed "feminist and former shrew" Laura Doyle sets forth a whopper of a game plan for establishing profound intimacy in one''s marriage. Building on the gender stereotypes defined by bestselling author John Gray ( Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus), Doyle seeks to heal the overworked, underappreciated wife who snarls at her mate''s every thought or action. Her message to these smart, self-sufficient types: check the nitpicking, the unsolicited opinions, and--egads!--the finances at the marital door (although she says it''s still okay to wield control at work). Many women will find such advice archaic and offensive; some will simply laugh off this credential-free anachronism when they receive the book as a bridal-shower gag gift. Still others, identifying with Doyle''s profile of a controlling wife, will be curious enough to dabble in her proposed art of "surrendering."

According to Doyle, the wife who chooses to surrender must learn to take care of herself first, overcome the desire to have more power, and abandon the myth of equality. Delving into the personal tales and sisterly advice shared within each chapter''s pages, surrendering wives will further note the need to master unsavory phrases like "I can''t," and "Whatever you think"--tough to swallow for a generation of women who value their own opinions. While she fully acknowledges that a few bills will go unpaid and a few deadlines or freeway exits will occasionally be missed, she also insists that surrendered wives will encounter less worry and fear, more money, and better sex. Hey, "Whatever you think...." --Liane Thomas

Review

John Gray author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus The Surrendered Wife is a practical and valuable tool for women wanting to regain intimacy in their relationships.

About the Author

Laura Doyle was great wife material until she actually got married. When she tried to tell her husband how to be more romantic, more ambitious, and tidier, he avoided her. She dragged him to marriage counseling and nearly divorced him. Then she started talking to women who had what I wanted in their marriages and that''s when she got her miracle: The man who wooed her returned.She wrote a few books about what she learned and accidentally started a worldwide movement of women who practice The Six Intimacy Skills™ that lead to having amazing, vibrant relationships. The thing she''s most proud of is her playful, passionate relationship with her hilarious husband John-who has been dressing himself since before she was born.

There are a couple of books I’d credit with “saving my marriage,” and this is definitely one of them. It has a similar message to fundamentalist Christian marriage books, yet is completely secular, and actually makes its case much better.

It’s one of the most profound books I’ve ever read, yet is difficult to summarize. It doesn’t exactly fall within any of the usual domains of thought. It’s hard to imagine how this book even came into being.

The book could be subtitled, “How to stop being a controlling shrew.” Or perhaps, to put it in the author’s words, “How to give up control and gain real power.” Or “what feminists need to do when they come home at night” (hint: change hats). It details the authors journey from being a typically frustrated modern woman, complaining about her marriage and contemplating divorce, to seeing the error or her ways, and achieving great happiness.

The book begins by explaining that many of us, when things didn’t go exactly right in our childhoods, responded by developing a need to be in control. We became control freaks, which allowed us to feel that we wouldn’t be hurt. She describes how a therapist assigned her to allow her husband to take her to dinner, and make all the decisions, including where to go and what food to order. Even in such a non-threatening venue, she kept inserting little “prompts,” and really was unable to allow the process to happen.

She also had hilarious but painfully familiar examples of dialogues she used to have with her husband – subtly or not so subtly seizing control of every situation – and invariably either screwing it up, or ruining her husband’s motivation to do anything.

But probably what keeps filtering back into my mind the most from the book is her descriptions of “how your husband really does love you …” Doesn’t he go to incredible lengths to please you? Doesn’t he devote his whole life to making you happy, in a sense? Isn’t his world destroyed when you’re unhappy? This is so true, at least in my case, and so easy to miss or forget. I don’t know whether it’s idiocy, insanity or lack of self-esteem, to fail to see this so completely at times.

Another point that keeps coming back to me is her examples of all the rationalizations we tell ourselves for maintaining control, criticizing and trying to “improve” our husbands. Somehow I really had developed this fantasy that I was so well functioning, and my husband goofed up everything he dealt with. Aside from the very dubious reality of this viewpoint, we all have to make our mistakes. We tend to forget our own mistakes, and remember the other person’s. Now, whenever I think or more likely fantasize that my husband is blowing it, I remind myself, as the author says, that if he really is blowing it, he’ll learn from his mistakes. And that if you’ve been controlling everything for years, it’s going to take some time to get out of that mode.

Another issue is that I was raised in a family that thought highly of giving feedback, which made sense to me. Then I married a man who had no use for feedback, whatsoever. Since I saw feedback as a positive thing, I was always trying to give it to him, and it infuriated him. After almost twenty years of battles over this, I had reduced it to a trickle, but not enough. This book contained a chapter on the destructiveness of trying to change or improve your husband. Didn’t you marry him in the first place? If he’s going to change, is it going to be the result of your nagging at him? (Absurd idea.) So I was finally able to see his viewpoint as legitimate, rather than avoidant and cowardly, as I had seen it before.

What amazed me was that so many of the exact, word-for-word arguments I’ve had with my husband were contained and explained in this book. One argument we had for years is that my husband used to say to me, “When I talk, just say ‘uh-huh.’ I don’t want to hear all your commentary, arguments, and so on.” I would look at him like he was crazy and say, “Are you out of your mind? Do you really want me to just be a robot and say nothing but ‘uh-huh’ to you?!” Yes. He was adamant that this was what he wanted, so I really had no choice but to reluctantly comply.

Well, there was a whole chapter in this book on the reasons to only respond to your husband with “whatever you think” at all times (e.g. “uh-huh”). I don’t have the book with me – I lent it to a friend – so I forget her exact reasoning, but it made sense.

Another argument we used to have was that he would throw fits over my giving any direction while he was driving. From my point of view, it was hard to keep quiet, since he invariably went the wrong way, or took circuitous routes to wherever we were going. But again, he insisted I should say nothing. I finally asked him, “Even if you’re going in the wrong direction, you don’t want me to say anything?” Yes. So again, thinking this was the most insane thing I’d ever heard of, yet feeling obliged to honor his wishes, I disciplined myself to keep my mouth shut no matter where he went.

Well, within some chapter, this book admonished wives to, “say nothing while he’s driving, even if he crosses the state line...” And my husband did eventually stop going in the wrong direction.

Another chapter instructed wives to always be open about what we want – everything we want – using the simple words “I want so and so” but to give no advice or instruction to husbands on how to accomplish these things. Another frequent argument of ours.

Shortly after reading the book, I was giving my husband my usual detailed instructions about how to complete some minor household repair. He said to me, actually rather nicely, “Just tell me what you want. I have a brain. I’ll figure out how to do it.” Again, words right out of the book, which I hadn’t discussed with him.

All in all, I can’t say that this book changed my actions that radically. I haven’t gone so far as to turn my bank account over to my husband, as the book advocates. What has changed more than my actions is my goals. I now have the goal of zero feedback. If there really is a problem, I try everything else first, or wait and see if time will somehow take care of it. And I’ve found that now that I’m genuinely and sincerely trying to avoid giving him feedback, he is able to accept it when I feel in my heart that I really need to make some comment on what he’s doing.

I can’t even say how much this book has helped me. My husband had complained bitterly, forever, that I was always controlling everything. Actually, he expressed it whenever we really tried to get to the core of what was wrong, which wasn’t very often. Maybe he just gave up.

From my point of view, I just didn’t get it. My viewpoint was that I tend to take charge, and he refuses to take charge. I was used to men who are controlling, having been raised by one, and without knowing it, I saw life as a battle for control. I couldn’t see it any other way.

This book showed me the virtue of not being in control, and of actively not being in control. If you’re an active person, you have to actively and voluntarily not be in control; actively support someone else in being in control.

Needless to say, our marriage has improved about a thousand percent.

Nope. I thought this book would be based on biblical principles, but it isn''t. This book is basically telling women, "Don''t ever speak your mind to your husband. Just close your mouth and agree every single time." She goes so far as to say something along the lines of not correcting your husband if they''re going the wrong way while driving and crossed state lines. What?! I''m sorry, that''s absolutely absurd to not speak up. It is not disrespectful to say something like, "Honey, are you ok? You missed our exit back there..." She suggests shutting your mouth 24/7 and agreeing with pretty much EVERYTHING your husband says, as if he isn''t human and prone to error, like we all are. You can still be very respectful and honoring towards your husband, yet still disagree. There were many times in my marriage where I didn''t agree with my husband. However, I do choose my battles because I don''t want to make him feel belittled or criticized over petty things. But you can bet your bottom dollar, he knows how I feel about things that are most important to me. But I do have a voice and I think it''s okay within your marriage to share that. My 2 cents.

Another part of her book, which was the point where I decided I wasn''t going to continue reading it anymore was when she wrote on p. 52 beneath, Responding To His Crazy Ideas, "... Instead, say with as much kindness and sincerity as you can muster, "Whatever you think" when he is telling you his ideas... If he thinks the kids should learn how to ski, and this sounds dangerous to you, say, "Whatever you think." "

I''m not saying skiing is dangerous or that I wouldn''t let my husband take our kids to learn how to ski, but where do you draw the line in not speaking up? Women have motherly intuition for a reason. When our son was 2 years old, he developed sleep apnea due to enlarged tonsils. At the time, we didn''t know it was sleep apnea. His pediatrician said to give him time to grow out of it because they usually outgrow it by age 5. When I brought this up to my husband, he''ll be the first one to tell you he didn''t think it was anything serious. When age 5 came, I realized that something was wrong - he had a lot of delays, including delayed growth and it was was due to the sleep apnea that went unnoticed, which was causing him to be deprived of oxygen during his sleep. After our son caught a cold and I actually laid next to him in bed and heard him sleeping and knew something was wrong with his breathing, I brought it up again to my husband and he still didn''t think anything was really wrong. But I knew better. I took him in to get a sleep study done and he ended up having really bad sleep apnea and had to remove his tonsils and adenoids. What if I did nothing because I didn''t trust my gut and agreed with him it was nothing? So again, where do you draw the line? I''m not trying to point fingers, but I am trying to point to the fact that we''re all human and prone to make mistakes. It''s irresponsible to our children to not advocate for them if we feel like something is wrong, even if it means disagreeing with our husband. Trust me, a husband who loves his wife will hear her heart. It''s not being a nag when you expose your fears and concerns with him. When I told my husband, in tears, that I truly believed something was wrong with our son, he told me to do what I thought was best. He did that because he trusts me as a mother and because he''s a great man who actually does listen. I totally disagree with her position that "no matter how dangerous" you perceive something to be, that wives need to always stay silent. That can be detrimental.

Then again, she had some major control issues she exposed in this book so maybe that''s why her pendulum is swung in the most extreme direction. Not allowing her husband to plan a date? Telling his barber how to cut his hair? What to wear? Come on - now of course, if you''re doing that, you need to change. I definitely agree for the most part that we shouldn''t correct, criticize, belittle, interrupt, control, etc.., but she is confusing surrendered with another word that''s synonymous with doormat.

I guess I should''ve read more of the 1 star reviews before purchasing. My bad.

Trust me, I understand submission. I am a Christian and know my role as a helper to my husband. I stay home and raise/homeschool our 3 kids. I understand that because I''m home most of the day, I am primarily responsible to take care of the household work. But my husband cares enough to help often. I respect my husband very much. I got this book to learn more about surrendering over a particular situation, but this book was a complete waste of money and time. (I can''t even finish reading it.) If you found it blessed your marriage, more power to you. I feel like it wasn''t the book I was looking for.

You''ll get more from reading what the Bible says about husbands and wives: Husbands, love your wives. Wives, respect your husbands.

But respect doesn''t mean becoming a brainless, mute doormat.

Disappointed. Want my opinion? Don''t waste your time or money. I''m off to purchase a book a friend highly recommended by the top marriage therapist in Israel called Garden of Peace - there''s a book for the man and one for the woman, written by Rabbi Shalom Arush.

(I am a Messianic Christian. The above author is Jewish, not Messianic, but my friend said there''s much to be gleaned despite his religious status.)

Kinda Nailed It! This book helped radically change the way my husband and I function in our marriage. I guess you can jump on the current feminist movement and demand that it''s all about you, but then it''s all up to you. Seems like a lot of pressure to add to today''s busy woman. Women don''t realize the power that comes from shutting up. Gentle strength. As the author points out toward the end of the book, that surrender to a higher power will enable you to give over the reins to a human must easier. This is essential. There is no way I could give the control to someone whom I''ve seen make bad decisions if I didn''t believe that Jesus is the one truly in control.
Is this book a fix-all to a complicated relationship? No, but it''s a start. I love the little tips throughout the book helping the rubber meet the road. Pride comes before the fall, setting yours down to have a successful relationship will help you get to the old, in-love couple that we all admire.
Trying to run the world your way will lead you to a mental breakdown and shear exhaustion. This book helps you see that really we have little control over things in this life. Might as well have a lovely relationship while we are here.
I few things I learned with this book as a guide.

This book is exactly what you would expect it to be. Highlight is the moment where the author says women shouldn''t interfere with the husband disciplining kids *even if the kids did nothing wrong and the husband is just taking out his frustration*. Corporal punishment is not mentioned but is strongly implied in the context. Men taking out their life frustrations on their kids is "unfair" but "human" says Doyle.

If your marriage has issues you should see a marriage counselor who hasn''t made their career advocating patriarchy.

This book was a recommendation from a life coach. I was struggling with my marriage for years and she finally recommended this book The only thing I was actually not happy about was that I was with coaches for 3 years in a struggling marriage until finally one of them came to senses and recommended this book.

I read this book over days. Literally I inhaled it. I had no idea about all the things I was doing to my husband :-(. Yes the book says "Surrendered Wives" but it really is giving up on nagging and all the crazy stuff women do that just make no sense once you notice it not your dignity. I''m eternally grateful for this book which also led to coaching. I had a long and painful journey of recovery but life is so sweet now. Just the thought that I''m around my husband all the time now during the pandemic blows my mind of how different life could have been. If I had to do it a year ago it would have been a disaster. Now it is just joy of being around a person I love so much.
I would have never seen that without the book and the coaching that I received. I''m in no way a door mat. I run a very successful business with my husband and contribute my feedback daily. But that feedback is given in a tactful loving way not in a "You should do this" which I did a lot in the past. Strongly recommend this book. I feel like a truly Empowered Wife because of the knowledge and the know how. Forever grateful.

I wrote a review but now I have to edit it. Firstly I really admire Laura. The title of her book is risky. A bit misleading because it suggests to the untrained eye, subservience. There have been 1 star accusations of training to be a ''gold digger'' (perish the thought that a woman could possibly use a man - men wouldn''t never do that with sex or money with women right? Unheard of!) I digress. This is really the kind of hard to swallow advice you might get from a beloved traditionally long married Aunty. Here we are living in the modern world with the world at our feet. Why are our husbands so very hard to get along with? Well because we have inherited such huge generational changes in terms of the opportunities and role of women in the world (especially first world countries) but for me? Not much has changed. The unwritten script men follow is by and large the same as it has always been. Ours have had constant re-writes. Laura''s book is about restoring respect for ones partner not implementing subservience. She definitely is not about trickery either. Sometimes social media encourages us to say it like it is or to fight with our husbands. "I''m not taking that!" "He is NOT going to tell me what to do". This kind of thing but it''s the way we say it that if our husbands spoke to us the same way we''d be mightily offended. Plus there is the notion we are entitled to take our controlling ways out on our other halves. She doesn''t suggest you work through this book together. Phew! Most husbands would laugh or run a mile. Or the changes would seem contrived. We can only change ourselves. It''s also about taking care of ones self and releasing the guilt of that. You can swallow this book any way you like but read it carefully. She is stating what''s works. She says stay away from abusive relationships. this is unworkable. But husbands who can act like rude donkeys or are acting in a way that you butt heads metaphorically can be salvaged. It''s about holding your tongue when there is no need to control. When it really isn''t your Business. It''s about peace in your home. Having confidence in yourself again. Knowing your limits of influence over another grown educated adult. It''s about reducing conflict for the sake of your children and as far as I know Laura doesn''t have children but it doesn''t make her any less qualified. But we all know having children is a massive game changer. The one thing I disagree with is to surrender financial responsibilities to your husband. If you want to do shared finances ok. If your husband is initially controlling in this aspect then bear this in mind but every woman needs her own financial back up. A flee fund as it''s called! Work towards at least 6 months rent. A figure to make you feel secure. Your husband could not leave you anything or if you are married to a traditional man from a different culture then there could be a host of female family dependents eager to kick you and your children to the kerb the minute anything happened to him. With no guilt. Keeo some money tucked away. But apart from that. Read this supposedly light toned book DEEPLY because it will make your head spin. Your friends will not respect you for it and there is a good chance you will be sneered at. But they won''t know why your marriage is starting to work again and they are stubbornly stuck in misery. Thank you Laura.

This has to be the worst book I''ve ever read. I feel cheated out of the £7.83 it cost, it''s truly not worth it. The book was recommended to me by someone on a discussion forum. I was advised the title of the book was misleading, but i''m afraid that isn''t the case. The book gives instructions, guidelines if you like, to create connection and intimacy with your husband, however its a one way ticket to being a passive, lazy and unemotional wife who just accepts that her husband will come good in the end through some misguided notion that if she decided to marry him in the first place he must be capable. I found the book more of a guide of how to be a goldigger, as it advises after giving up control of the family finances to set yourself an extravagant personal spending plan and having ''trust'' in your husband that he will deliver everything you want and need. Also don''t forget to make yourself available for sex at least once a week EVEN IF YOU DON''T WANT IT. It also says that if your husband rejects taking control of anything, you shouldn''t take it back even if it means no one controls it, as eventually your husband will take control. This is a recipe for disaster. There is no advice on what to do if he doesn''t, only to keep refusing to do it yourself by saying "I can''t" and having hope that your husband will want to help you. The book often refers to and raves about support groups or "surrendered circles" but there''s no links on the author''s website and the groups I have seen on facebook etc are not very popular or well attended.

Interesting book that provides an unique and radical perspective on husband and wife relationship. It primarily takes the wife on a journey of letting go of control of their husband and trade it for ever closer and lasting intimacy. As a husband who has recently experienced separation, I think author has successfully spoken about a problem that affecting a large section of society - which is increasingly disrespectful and undermining of a male/husband role. However, this is by no means a comprehensive guide to married life nor is it a book of universal truth. Certain sections are extremely controversial and thus should be taken with appropriate caution (e.g. section on sexual relationships within marriage). The book does not discuss the roles and responsibilities of husband and wife, it does very little service to families with children, and says absolutely nothing about the complexities of other family structures (like living with in-laws etc).
