I just read the “Don’t complain if he stays out all night…count this as minor compared to his day”  Huh?!

@Mrs.KMM: I’m a history major, and this is definitely the “ideal” housewife back then. I know my mom’s mother acted a lot like this. I think it’s what women were supposed to strive for- some did and some didn’t. I hate cooking so I would’ve been screwed, haha.

@mwitter80: I thought the part about being a little gay was funny too!  I bet my DH would find it pretty “interesting” if I was “a little gay.”

And did you notice this article says TWO TIMES not to complain if he’s late?  If I’m gonna make myself pretty, make you dinner, make the house and kids look nice, make you comfortable, and respect that your opinions and topics of conversation are the only important ones, then you better be home on time, buddy!

When DH comes home and I can hear him shaking his keys and opening the door, I’ll usually go up to the door quickly and give him a kiss and a hug as he comes in. One day he told me ” You know, you reaaally don’t have to feel the need to be ready in the doorway every day when I get home”. hahaha I told him “Fine, I won’t come say hi” .. now he gets sad if I’m not there to greet him.

 

That’s about the most wifely thing I do 😀

Wow!

My favorite part was for the wife not to complain if he stays out all night. Wow!

But keep in mind ladies, back then, women did not work outside the home.  They were TOTALLY dependent upon their husbands for everything.  If they didn’t want to put up with things that their husbands did, or didn’t do, they didn’t have the resources or opportunity to strike out on their own like we do now.  I think this article was also a guide to try to make the best of what may have been a bad situation for a lot of women.

Hmmm, that’s a little over the top for me.  But my opinion is, if FI’s out working all day at a stressful job to provide for the family, I feel that I should have a good meal and a clean house at the end of the day.  It’s only fair.  I would NOT be ok with him staying out all night.  No WAY.

@Pomapoo: LOL no kidding right?! If I go to all the trouble to have meal ready for you at a certain time and make sure that me and the house are looking good, you had DAMN WELL BETTER be on time. Not on time?  Your plate is in the fridge. Heat it up your damn self.

Hahaha this makes me laugh.  Glad I live in 2011 or I would be a terrible wife apparently. 

“His topics of conversation are more important than yours” wtf!

@JessicaAlecia: The “Advice to Young Brides” that your article links too is also a treat! 🙂
