How does our upbringing and male role models affect our happily-ever-after?
“I want to marry a man like your husband,” I told her.
She stopped, looked at me. I expected speedy affirmation, a nod of approval perhaps. Instead she laughed. Long and loud, head thrown back.
Embarrassed by her laughter, I rushed to explain myself.
It was then that my friend figured she made a mistake, laughing at my ambitions.
I was single and pretty sure God would bless me with a husband one day. Preferably, one like my friend’s husband – a cheerleader, stable, focused, godly.
