    I just got this from a friend - apparently it's an extract from a 1960s book on how a good wife should behave in the bedroom! :shock:

    1960? That doesn't seem like it was THAT long ago... I might have guessed waaaaaaaay earlier than that.

    Yip - that's what we were taught! Now you know why the hippies rebelled and decided "free love" is better...LOL

    I think somebody gave me that when I married! But my husband read some other book! Oh well, it didn't work for either of us!

    I knew several ladies who followed that book :shock:
    Their husbands had never seen them without hair done, make up in place, except when they were in the hospital after having their babies :roll:

    Very true Loretta LMBO not getting old...just the times they are a changin' :wink:

    I was smiling and shaking my head until I got to the part where she says, "...being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more important than a woman's." My jaw dropped and I thought, WHAT????? It just blows me away to read this stuff, even though it is from the 60's. What's also mystifying in this day and age is that Eddie couldn't get into a guild because he's a man.

    OMG! I think that is a page from my Mom's 1962 Home Economics book. They had an entire chapter on "Being a Successful Wife".

    I read this to my mother....she's 81. She laughed till she cried. Said she was SO glad she'd not read that book. And yes, her reaction to "OBEY" was the same!! ROLMAO! :mrgreen:

    Wait till he goes to sleep to put on your face cream and rollers, and arise before him etc, etc. etc.

    Be completely obedient, compliant right down to encouraging sound effects...
    I got a sound effect for the writer: PFFFTTT!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I don't know about the rest of the country, but in our house, they're certainly different! :lol:

    Actually, some of the French men are incredibly male chauvinist, even the young ones! I was once with Hans and a French male colleague of his who had a classic car for sale, Hans expressed interest and I said 'you're NOT having it!'. The French guy nearly fell off his chair and said 'in France, women don't speak to their husbands like that!' Raising his hand to indicate the slap I would get if I were HIS wife! I looked him in the eye and said 'lucky I'm not French then, isn't it!'
    His wife is beautiful but like a frightened mouse! b#&@d! :shock:

    If my17 year old daughter even attempts to follow that, I would be the one to slap her!!! I've spent 17 years preaching to that child to be independent and not to take *&^%## off men. I'm crossing my fingers that it will work.

    I actually have a book like that tucked away in a box. It's a riot to read. Friends of my Mom and Dad gave it to me as a wedding present. Said I should read it for pointers, then they laughed. lol
    I did peruse thru it and laughed hysterically. Called the friends and they just laughed and laughed. They asked me if I was going to follow any of it. I said sure...he might get dinner and I might be dressed appropriately...meaning, not in sweatpants and a tshirt. lol
