I found this and showed it to the wife, and even I had a hard time believing it was real. But after a little bit of goggling I found others like it. This one came from a magazine in 1955. It is a little hard to read so let me tell you what it says:
The good wife's guide.
  • Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before to have a delicious meal ready and on time for him. This is a way of telling him you have been thinking about him all day and are concerened with his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal(especially their favorite) is part of the warm welcome needed.
  • Prepair yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup , put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. He was just with alot of weary looking people.
  • Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
  • Clear away the cluter. Make one last trip through the house before the husband arrives.
  • Gather up all the school books, toys , paper etc and run a dust cloth over the tables.
  • Over the cooler monthd of the year ligth a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached his haven of rest and order and it will give you a lift too. After all catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  • Prepair the children. Take a few minutes to wash their hands and faces, comb their hair,and change their cloths. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimise all noise. At the time of his arrival eliminate all noise of the washer , dryer, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet as well.
  • Be happy to see him.
  • Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  • Listen to him. You may have done a dozen important things to tell him but the momment he arrives is not the time. Let him talk first - remeber his topic of conversation is more important than yours.
  • Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner or other places of enterainment without you. Instead try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
  • Your goal : Try to make your home a place of peace, order and tranquillity where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
  • Do not greet him with complaints and problems.
  • Do not complain if he is late for dinner or stays out all night. Count this as minor compaired to what he goes through daily.
  • Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cold or warm drink waiting for him.
  • Arrange his pillows and offer to take off his shoes for him. Speak in a low, soothing,and pleasant voice.
  • Dont ask him questions about his actions or question his judgement or integrity. Remeber he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfullness. YOU have NO RIGHT to question him!
  • A good wife knows her place.

    Now as a man I find this offensive, it makes us look like retarded children that even as grown ups needing a mommy. I did not get married to have a mindless servant standing at attention waiting for me to bring home the bacon. What they fail to mention here is that she should be willing to have sex whenever the man wants it lol. And to never question why you both need to go to the clinic for blood test and why he shaved off his pubes and his sudden need to wash all the sheets. Because we all know you get crabs and STD's from public toliets.

But then again my first wife would be been better off if she could just followed a few of this !

Danielle said...

You know, you have a lot of female readers, you better watch your back!!! aahahahahah!

honkeie2 said...

Yeah I know and by no means do I think any woman or human should ever be exspected to follow these kinda rules. But this is the type of thinking our grand parents saw and had to swallow. So next time grand ma say" back when I was your age,' you can say" You mean back when men were men and women Knew their place?" I wonder if the man that wrote that ever got married. Or was this just a fond dream of his?

Anonymous said...

I'm going to go with a fond dream! lol... I hardly follow that for myself!

Danielle said...

ahahah *FOND DREAM*

Cherry said...

That is a really funny list. I can't believe women actually lived that way back then. Hell no would I EVER do any of that shit. As far as I'm concerned, any woman stupid enough to have gone by that list deserved it.

Ohhhhhhh, don't even get me started on this topic.

honkeie2 said...

Please dont hurt me* curling into fetal postion* I didnt write it :-O
But that was pretty funny lol.

Becky said...

That is fucking hysterical, honestly, I agree with this for the most part; if the woman isn't also working! But I work too, so there's no fucking way! I still find the time to clean and do laundry, and cook dinner though. I realize one day I will be at home (after I get pregnant.) I am so much more conservative than I thought.

Becky said...

Now watch me get attacked!
May I say, regardless of all of this crap, we real women know that if we do those things it only puts the pants on us! Because the man couldn't live with out us!

Chris said...

Excellent post! I think women need to memorize that article, and recite it every morning when they wake up. :-)

Becky said...

I wonder if a man or woman wrote that????

honkeie2 said...

Well becky if you do follow this let me know maybe another wife wouldnt hurt lmao...just kidding. I have problems handeling one, I dont want to imagine two double mint twins comin after me .
And chris remeber when you dad taught you the 4 F's of women...
Find them, feed them, feel them, and FEAR them. Dont forget that last one lol.

honkeie2 said...

I would bet a very lonely man with dreams of grandure.

Becky said...

I'm going to have to copy this post.

honkeie2 said...

Ranger Tom said...

Sex after marriage? You got to be fucking kidding me!

lollie said...
