    Puuleezee give us a break, this was the prevailing blah blah back then. They forgot to say not to chide him for having a mistress because his job is so stress-full he needs to spend time with someone younger and hotter than you, and oh yes, he likes his scrambled eggs soft but not runny, his shirts with light starch and the socks rolled from the top down. I don't know who wrote this but he needs to be turning on a spit in a hot place full of angry women.

    Are you kidding me, A good wife always knows her place? I am so mad now I could spit nails! No wonder the Hippie Generation came about. I do a lot of things for my DH because I want to. I know my Grandmother did her best to do this for my Grandfather with three daughters, one with Cerebral Palsy and a son born when she was in her early 40's. She was all alone when my Grandfather left for WWII. Sheesh! I feel spoiled compared to all of that.

    I agree Gramma Nan I love my husband we are equal I make sure dinner is ready because I love too sit with my family and enjoy the company it is relaxing and we all enjoy it. I do some of these things but not because I have to because it just seems right. Wow what an interesting article. But that is in the past and in todays world would not hold up too well. My place is right next to my husband working as a team!!!

    Thanks for the laugh.

    I do a lot of those things for my husband cheerfully.
    That's how I was raised, a woman takes care of the home her husband provides for her. My husband makes sure I have what my heart desires, a new truck every few years, a fantastic sewing room and plenty of laughter in the house.

    Sadly, yes there were. I know this from my own family, however I never did learn my place...in my family it was God/the church/males of any age and then women, children last of all. I guess I was just too stubborn and obstinate as I was so often told by my grandmother. I got out as soon as I could and never looked back. I am still an uppity woman.

    I "prepare my children" daily. They're best with a little Montreal steak seasoning. Funny post. We've come a long way, baby! My teen daughter had big eyes when I told her women had only been allowed to vote in the US for 80 years.

    This just shows how things have changed.
    I've seen this before, there is one out about school teachers way back also.
    I saw these years ago, nothing new, I never heard of a woman like this in real life.

    Well, okay -- I admit I was raised this way. Women did all the cooking, cleaning, as well as worked in the fields along with their husbands. Men were served first, children second and women last. While the men napped after that huge meal we used to call "dinner", women cleaned up the kitchen and took care of the children. Golly gee, if only my grandma could see me now!! :!: :shock: :lol:

    :D I would not have made it a month back in that time. :D I am all for my DH being the man of the house. He supports me in every way & I do what I can to make our home comfortable & inviting. We treat each other as equals. We are a team and work together very well. :wink:

    I think that got 'doctored' a little bit - I've seen it before and I think somebody added a few - mainly the ones about letting him run around all night, or going out without you... etc. Probably added as somebody's idea of a huge joke.

    My mother was a new wife at the time that was published. It didn't work that way in our house as we were growing up. My mom and dad were equal partners.

    Makes you realize why so many women entered convents in those days.

    Agh yes, things have definitely changed in most ways for the better. I still have my hubby spoiled, but he's doing better all the time. Over twenty years ago, he was whining and complaining about his job. He said I had it easy staying at home with the two kiddos all day. I said, all right I'll go out and get a job and provide for this family and you can stay at home and see just how easy it is. Sooo,, that's what happened. He decided rather quickly that he owed me an apology, saying it was much harder than he ever imagined.. I wanted to write those words in stone...
