Men who help women with their careers are sexier than men with flat stomachs, large biceps, and other remarkable assets. So many women have got all this 'stuff' in them--a book or a play. Or they may have fabulous business or other talent. I want every woman to have a husband like mine, a husband who can be a real friend and companion, who knows how to bring out that secret gift or talent so many women have, but never put to use.
