Fawn

 I “love my life as K. Weaver’s wife” (exactly what is written on my car license plate frame).  My husband, Keith, and I were married in 2003 and like fine wine our relationship just gets better with time.  I’ve loved being a wife from the moment I said “I do.”

I’m not a stay-at-home wife, I’m a former hotel general manager-turned real estate investor-turned USA Today® and New York Times® bestselling author.  I’ve always worked long hours, as does Keith, but we continue to keep the fire lit in our marriage.  I absolutely love being married and began wondering how many other wives there are like me.

I am a Proud Wife.  I am a Happy Wife.  But if I actually believed the television shows, magazine articles or books out at the moment, I’d think the term “Happy Wife” is an oxymoron and the enjoyment I’ve experienced throughout these years together is an anomaly.

Decades of the media bombarding us with visions of unhappy wives (Stepford Wives, Desperate Housewives, The Real Housewives of [fill in your town]) and daunting divorce statistics made me think about the rarity of my marriage and the joy I feel as a wife.  Then it hit me!  I can’t be the only one.  There must be others out there who view marriage and spending time with their husband as one of the absolute greatest blessings in their life.

With this thought in mind, I set out on a mission.  I believe there are millions of wives all over the world just like me and I’m determined to find them and give a voice to this seemingly rare woman conveniently missing from all forms of media and entertainment.

On a whim, Fawn started the blog HappyWivesClub.com and sent the link to 5 friends. What started as a casual invitation to five women exploded into an international online club with 150,000 members in more than 100 countries.  

Founded  in 2010, HappyWivesClub.com  has now grown into a community of more than 600,000 women in more than 110 countries. This upbeat blog is dedicated to positively changing the tone about marriage. It has attracted more than 5 million visitors and was twice named best marriage website by About.com (2012 & 2013).

Fawn’s debut book, Happy Wives Club is her journey across the world to meet new friends and discover what makes their marriages great. Join Fawn on this exciting, exotic trip across six continents and through more than eighteen cities.

Walk the streets of Mauritius, the historic ruins in Italy, and the vistas of New Zealand and Australia. Go from Cape Town to London, Manila to Buenos Aires, Winnipeg to Zagreb.

Along the way, you will meet everyday women whose marriage secrets span cultures. You will hear their stories, witness their love, and be inspired by the proof that happy, healthy marriages do exist—and yours can be one of them!

It turns out great marriages are all around us—when we look for them. Go on a trip with Fawn and learn the best marriage secrets the world has to offer.

  • Forgiveness is always so important. Realizing that Christ forgives me and His forgiveness is so undeserved but He forgives me because His love is greater. I need to love my husband with that kind of love and have compassion with him because he is an imperfect person, just like me. I also think of times my husband has forgiven me and I want to extend the same to him.

  • We pray together every morning as nd at night before bed. Has worked for 51 years! Happy wife. Happy Hubby.

  • 12 years of marriage has taught me that the only one that make you happy is YOU! Not your husband –he’s there to enhance you, love you and support you–not be the bearer of your happiness.

  • Always assume the best about your husband and sometimes our good intentions gets lost in the translation (communication).

  • Praying together and remembering to pour into your marriage daily. Special doesn’t always happen on it’s own.

  • We went to a Family Life Conference early in our marriage. The one thing that has stuck with us and has been helpful is “my mate is not my enemy”. We also tell each other “I am committed to you”. Those are just a couple of things,,, We have been married 24 years

  • The book sounds wonderful! My husband and I have been married 31 years. Kindness, a sense of humor and most importantly extending grace and forgiveness are what has kept our marriage strong through some tough times.

  • My husband and I have been married for 21 years. Our secret is praying together every morning. It has blessed us in many ways.

  • After 55+yrs, to sum it up short and sweet, I would say have an attitude of gratitude and a servant’s heart and making love your aim as Corinthians says.

  • My husband and I are ‘best friends’. We talk to one another like we would talk to one of our besties. We truly enjoy spending time together, and we laugh! It is such a joy to laugh and enjoy life. I listen, truly listen, before I interject. Sometimes my husband just wants to feel validated and heard. His days can be crazy sometimes, and being a working mom, mine can too. We all just want to feel like we are heard and understood, right? Marriage isnt’ always easy, but the fight to keep it alive is so worth it. We have been married 20 years this year.

    Blessings,
    KK

  • My advice is to always be present (and living in the moment) when you and your husband are together. So many distractions occur when we are doing life with one another and while it may appear that we are physically present, that is often not the case. When we are truly present, we genuinely take time to connect with one another at a deeper level which in turn, brings us closer together and increases our love and appreciation for one another.

  • As a woman/wife pray and spend time with God on your own but especially pray each day together! This practice will strengthen your bond as a couple as you strengthen your bond with God.

  • Wouldn’t it be nice to say that in our 51 years of marriage, we have never fought or disagreed about anything. That would certainly be a lie and no one that has ever been married would believe it. My husband and I have always talked things out. We respect each other. We might end up agreeing to disagree but we work it out. We gave our marriage to God when we decided to marry and He has always been the head of our home. We pray together and when our 4 sons were home (they are all married with families of their own now) we made sure they understood why God was the one we always prayed too and let them know we could do nothing without Him. I am definitely A HAPPY WIFE!

  • Touch. Don’t pass without touching was the advice given by an lady much senior to us when we were newly weds. She was right.

  • Be secure in who you are in Christ. Realizing that our husband’s are not our “savior” gives them freedom from meeting needs that we should be depending on God to meet. I find it more beneficial to our marriage when I ask God to show me where I need to change rather than focusing on all the things my husband needs to change.

  • (Note: In 1978,ANSI B74.10-1997, Congress set as the minimum fee for grazing cattle on Bureau of Land Management BLM lands $1.35 per “animal unit month.” An animal unit is the equivalent of a 1,ANSI N13.30,000 pound cow,ANSI B11.2-1995, based on an average consumption of 26 pounds of dry forage per day.) Bundy reason for not paying more than $1 million in grazing fees at $1.35 per cow? “I believe this is a sovereign state of Nevada. And I abide by all Nevada state laws. 相关的&

  • Our secret is staying friends. Doing things together and never talking bad about one another have always been our motto.

  • You have a beautiful smile! Smiling would be a plus in any marriage.
    One thing I know, is that I cannot change others, only myself. So I try hard to watch my reactions. If it’s not working, I try something else.
    Two, FAITH. I always believe everything will work out. I may not know why, or have any answers sometimes, but I do have Faith. Faith in myself, Faith in my husband, and Faith in God above. I look forward to reading your book.

  • 33+years and yes I have repeated my vows in my heart and renewed my mind through Gods word! Ignore faults and ponder positives relentlessly! Don’t talk ill of your spouse to others and walk away from those who do a lot of negative chatter about their partner, resentment is an easier load to carry for some but an unhappier one. Don’t end any day angry at your spouse. Blessings to all!
