Lean In To Your Marriage

I really enjoyed reading this lovely take on the ever-hip and ever-controversial subject of Sheryl Sandberg's new book. Here's an excerpt to pique your curiosity:

"I intentionally give my all to my husband and marriage every day because when I retire from the workforce, I want to make sure I’ve created a family that’s built to last.  I want to have a marriage I thoroughly enjoy and a husband who never ceases to make me smile.  I don’t want to wake up in my fifties and realize I’ve got a fat bank account and a skinny relationship.

So if you want to know if I believe in the concept of Lean In, absolutely!  The only difference is I am focused on leaning in to what matters most in the long run: God, family and friends."

Click here to read the rest. And leave your thoughts--I'd love to know what you think!


  1. What a well written piece. Even more interesting is that the author (Fawn of Happy Wives Club) seems to be very successful professionally but still prioritizes her marriage. I can't help but want it all - a strong relationship with God, my husband, and (future) children, and a rewarding career.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I love that her piece fills in what I think Sandberg's argument seems to leave out. :)


Your comments bring me joy! I do my best to respond to each one either on the blog or via email (if your email is linked to your comment). Thank you for visiting Something Ivory.
