LMAOOOOOO! THis article LITERALLy made me laugh out loud! If I was a stay at home I could probably adhere to about 50% of this list, mostly the things in relation to making the home a haven and place of comfort. I do believe the house should be clean at all times, kids should always look clean, and dinner should be ready for him when he gets home. But with a career and me getting home at the same time or after he gets home…those things are not possible always. These are the ones that made my stomach lurch and made me laugh the loudest

His topic of convo is more important than yours?

Don’t complain if he stays out all night??

Speak in a low, soothing pleasant voice? SO change my voice for what again? Lmaooo! Not happening….

I sent Fiance the link and he laughed and said he didnt see anything wrong with it and it would be the perfect life, lmaooo! He’s hilarious!!

There was alot of things that I did not like with that article, I would have been a terrible wife and by all means if living in those times.. I think it’s amazing what we women have accomplished today.

 

I know my mom always tries to teach me a thing or two about “housewifing”. MEH.

 

Other than that… 2XLOL

There is ONE thing in there I agree with: “Don’t greet him with complaints and problems.”

I read that the first 10 minutes after you get home sets the tone for the rest of the night, so if you are met with a laundry list of negativity it sets up for a bad night. I’ve been guilty of this myself, so I’m super conscious of it now and it made a HUGE difference.

Now excuse me while I go fluff pillows and speak my my low soothing voice…. lol! 😉

I’ve seen this before and it makes me laugh!  Both my grandmas were teenagers/young wives during this era, and they both said they didn’t treat my grandpas like that — they all did their fair share, even in the 50’s!!

While a lot of households did adhere to thinking like that (um… and sadly some still do), at least according to the women in my family, not everyone back then thought that way.  I’ve read on Snopes that it’s possible the article is actually a hoax.  It’s truly amazing, though, how far our society has come in the last 50 years.

@JessicaAlecia: Was about to post the exact same thing. The list as it appears doesn’t exist in its entirety in any major publication that anyone can find but some of the ideas are sprinkled throughout literature of the day. The snopes article is an interesting read.

This may not be a popular opinion, but I like this article, for both spouses.

I think to often today we are so preoccupoed with ourselves, we forget to consider and listen to our spouses, to take the time to do things for him/her, both in action and attitude, without expecting them to be acknowledged and appreciated.

@2ndtime:  Well, I am a stay at home mom and resources or not there is not way that shit would fly in our home.  I don’t think that women past or present, resources or not need to trade their self respect for security.

Yea, it’s a hoax. I have seen a very similar article that was an original–my mom had kept it from her childhood–and while it does have the “clean the house right before he gets home” and the “dress up nice,” most of the rest of this article–“don’t question him” etc–seems to have been Photoshopped in more recently. Like snopes says, check out the credit next to the photo–it says “Advertising Archives.”

I wonder what future generations will think of our magazine articles though! “Kim Kardashian lost 35 pounds in 2 days! Find out how!” “Gwyneth Paltrow has a perfect life and YOU CAN TOO!” Haha.
