Highland Radio interview on ‘The Young Wife’

Yesterday morning I was invited to discuss with Shaun Doherty on Highland Radio the Young Wife booklet I blogged about here, we also had a quick chat about the Mixed Marriages booklet I wrote about here. Both of these booklets, which belonged to my grandmother, gave instruction on how to live a good married life in accordance with Catholic teaching.

The Young Wife booklet, in particular, has attracted a lot of attention. It was re-tweeted numerous times, shared on Facebook, re-blogged and reproduced on Broadsheet.ie and IrishCentral.com.

I really enjoyed the chat with Shaun Doherty, and it was interesting to listen to the reaction of one caller to the programme who was adamant that no wife is the property of her husband.

Unfortunately, Highland Radio doesn’t yet podcast their shows. You’ll find the Shaun Doherty Show on Facebook here.
