Support #5 and Book I’m reading #3

*SPOILER ALERT, LADY G, DO NOT READ, I repeat Lady G, DO Not Read. Don’t do it Gwinn*

Ok, the last book I read was called “The Unhappy Wife” by Dr. K.E. Garland. It was a very informative look into the mindsets of Women from the Midwest and the South, who have been abused, cheated on, and used. All of these women either had to overcome something or someone to leave their husbands or forgive their husbands. I would like to highlight a few things from this amazing book.

Miss Sharlene’s story started in 1977. She Married 5 times in her lifetime and she explains in depth what happened with each marriage. The most powerful quote I’ve heard in a long time was this.

“There’s no perfect person. We as women are not perfect. We have imperfections. But the thing is, we’recommend looking for perfections in a man. And that’s where we go wrong.”

Wow. That is truth. And this isn’t a book about male bashing or anything like that. It simply explains what a lot of Women of color in the South are conditioned to believe. Whether it’s Christianity, families, status, a lot of these women (my point of view) seemed as if they were marrying for other things and not themselves. Maybe because marriage is a big deal in the bible belt and maybe I could be slightly misinformed due to me being raised in San Francisco Ca, but I felt at times that there was a fight within these women to not be unmarried no matter the case. I do know if being single or by yourself is taboo in those areas, but I noticed that common pattern. I felt like it was an unforeseen, mental competition to not be alone without a Man. This was a great read and I commend Dr. Garland for helping these women and being there to jot their journey down.

The next book I will be reading, also comes from a fellow blogger and y’all know, I’m all about supporting our businesses. This book is called “Wealth is a Mind$et” by Shynna Key. She has her own YouTube channel where she talks about wealth and money management. I will definitely let you know what I think once I’m done. Thank you for your support.

  1. Reblogged this on K E Garland and commented:
    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. WordPress bloggers are some of the MOST supportive people I’ve never met. This post is no exception! Although he’s not a book blogger, Tareau not only ordered The Unhappy Wife, but also read and commented. Check out his favorite story and stay tuned for my upcoming series of conversations centered on each wife’s story.

    1. Thank you for commenting Mrs. Gorman. As a single father of 3, (Daughter 11 and twin son’s 9), I would never push marriage on them. Marriage and finding the perfect man is instilled on ladies way before they can even drive a car. They neglect to find themselves and end up catering to someone who they misconstrued love for something else. Without giving away anything, my big mouth will reserve commenting more lmfao hahahahahha. Once again thanks

  2. Ooh The Unhappy Wife sounds juicy. I’m born & raised in the South so I can for sure say that many of us women marry for other reasons than true love. Sucks right?! It helps though to hear stories from other women and situations that I can relate to. Think I may add this to my December book challenge. Thanks for the unbiased review!

    1. Yes this book opened my eyes about alot of things. There is a cultural difference from the south to where I’m from (San Francisco Ca). When you get the book, we can discuss more because I don’t want to ruin anything.

      1. Well hello Mr Barron and how are you on this fine morning? 🙂 Mr Barron, I’ll have you know that I engage in many forms of expression, but I balk at “sarcasm” when commenting on the talents of my fellow bloggers. In other words no it ain’t! Me? sarcastic? Tareau you should know better than that. It was a brilliant review and I was very impressed. 🙂
