Hey, TG. If you read the Snopes.com page, it said that items like this exaggerate what life was like back then. So while it probably wasn't an actual article, it's probably based on true facts that have since been exaggerated.

Not in THIS century - you got THAT right!

i found a few really old articles snipped from magazines tucked into my aunt's cookbooks that were very similar. i couldn't believe how lucky guys were back then, and how badly they must have screwed it up.

i showed my mom, and she said many women thought and did many of those things years ago. my dad did his part (hard working, frugal, faithful, kind, generous, and loving), and they've been married 60 years!

Listen, I grew up with this stuff!!!! How did I survive? My mother was having NONE of it! I remember the time we were visiting relatives and my mom and my Aunt Viola came to blows because my mother refused to get up and get my father another beer. We left their house in the middle of the night and had to find a motel - my mom had a black eye and Aunt Viola had a nose bleed. GO MOM! Guess she never did "know her place." Thank goodness.

Kudos to your mom! My mother was like that too.
