Lessons Learned From Dr. Laura

Dr. Laura,

I've been listening to you for several years, and here are some things I've learned from you in that time.

  • When I was 19 (I'm 54 now), I married my first husband.  He ran off with another woman and we divorced.  
Lesson learned from you:  don't marry so young, because you really don't have a clue!
  • I remarried on the rebound and thought I could change a drug abuser and rehabilitate him.  One year later, we divorced.  
Lesson learned from you:  You can't change anyone.
  • I remarried again, and failed to talk with him about his views on children.  He wanted them and I wasn't so sure.  I let him out of the marriage so he could find someone who would want to have a family with him.  
Lesson learned from you: Do pre-marital counseling to talk about expectations!

I married again ten years ago, and since listening to you, I've made SURE to follow your rules.  We have a wonderful life because I chose wisely this time and I definitely treat kindly.  I used to roll my eyes at what you said on the air, but after putting your suggestions into action and finding out THEY REALLY DID WORK, I'm amazed.  I wish I would have found you earlier - I might have saved myself a lot of mistakes.

The next 30 years or so are going to be wonderful, and I finally got it right with your help.

Thank you!
