A blogger who has recently been married and decided to share some marriage advice is taking heat due to the controversial nature of her tips for the married woman. Amanda Lauren, a writer from Los Angeles, married Ethan Kass just four months ago and shared that she has made a vow to “stay hot” for her husband and to “keep trying to look and feel” her best to please him.

People shares the exact words that the newlywed blogger used in the post that has brought criticism.The words were written in an essay for YourTango and was titled, “Staying Hot For My Husband is ESSENTIAL to a Successful Marriage.”
“My husband and I probably have a more traditional marriage than most millennials If I’m there when my husband gets home from work, I love to make him his favorite cocktail (it’s kind of Mad Men, but it works for us). Sunday is my night to cook dinner. But one of the most important things I do to make him happy is to be the woman of both his fantasies and reality. I see the look on my husband’s face when I come out of the bathroom, ready for a night out, or the way he checks out my butt on the way to Pilates class. Having an attractive wife makes him happy. They say ‘Happy wife, happy life,’ but I’m happiest when my husband is happy.”
Amanda then cites April Masini who is a New York-based relationship and etiquette expert, as well as author. Masini supports Lauren’s claims that men are all visual.
“There’s no question about it: men are visual – at all ages – and they want you to look attractive, and they want their friends to be jealous.”
The blogger continued on indulging her readers in her advice that makes it easy to understand as to why people are somewhat shocked and put off by her.
“If men can’t help but be visual creatures, I need to oblige. And while I’m not sure if his friends are jealous so to say, they do acknowledge he has a hot wife. All relationships require work, and working on myself is doing the work I need to do for the sake of my relationship. Even if I’m running 15 minutes behind on date night because my hair isn’t straightening, my husband can’t complain if he’s swooning over me.”
Since her essay was posted, Amanda has, as noted, received some heavy backlash. Since receiving negative comments about her work and advice, the blogger has insisted that although she loves to look great for her husband, she makes it a priority for herself as well.
“Doing things that make you look your best, can make you feel your best. And when you feel your best, we’re better partners. My husband thinks I’m beautiful no matter what.”

Lauren shares that her husband is a little bit heavier and like a big teddy bear, but claims that this is her type of man. She claims that she doesn’t want to be with a super fit guy. She also went on to say that she feels that he is the most loving person and that they both support each other in all they do.
“I’ve never really had someone who loves me and understands me and wants me to be the happiest I can be until I met him. We really support and appreciate each other.”

Lauren was also quick to slam misconceptions, sharing that working from home makes her a very down-to-earth woman in appearance and attire, most of the time.
“I work from home, so I basically have two outfits: workout clothes or shorts. There are times when I don’t brush my hair. I’m so not glam every minute of the day. But when it comes to going out and going to events, I definitely take an hour or an hour and a half to get ready.”
