Something causing much distress and confusion in many a wife will be explained—and the answer given—at the Saturday, June 10th Understanding Marriage! class, taught by consultants Barbara Allen, Anne Fielding, and Meryl Nietsch-Cooperman, and open to all women. These comprehending sentences by Mr. Siegel, from an Aesthetic Realism lesson he conducted, will be the focus of lively discussion:
“The chief difficulty in marriage is that people think the other person worries about them, and will even stick up for them when they’re attacked, but will not encourage them directly….Encouragement would mean: a desire of yours is that a person get to what represents him, what he rightly hopes for, and that he respect himself. You see that person from his point of view, and feel it’s good for you to see that person’s purpose…..Aesthetic Realism says if you don’t encourage a person, you can’t think well of yourself. This is what I call the ethical imperative.”
The class will show: the pivotal thing is a woman’s purpose: Is it to be fair to her husband and the world; does she hope to respect a man and the world more, or less? Women will learn that a wife can have a purpose—contempt—that stops her from being affected by who her husband really is; from finding out what he most and rightly hopes for. Understanding how this is so, and that encouragement honestly to know and like the world is what wife and husband urgently need, brings new life and happiness to wives and marriages!Buy tickets/get more info now
