I am gonna get run outta town now....
I'm not saying all of whats in this article is right by any means. Gimme a break. Shut the kids up and don't bother him? WHATEVER.
But honestly, when you treat your spouse like royalty and put them first, do you know what you get in return?
Treated like royalty!!!!!!
Try it, you'll like it. I promise.

Unfortunately, not all men see it that way. There are some that do, but, too many that take it for granted and just expect it because they are the king of the castle.

yay squzie!!!!!

yeah, some of it is ridiculous. i think many women are put off by this because it only describes what a woman is supposed to do. i think it's taken out of context by not understanding that men were already expected to act accordingly: provide for the family and be selfless or self-sacrificing, , leave the pressures and stresses of work at the office and begin a second day at home in the evening with equal enthusiasm as the first, be a symbol of calm strength to the children while backing up your wife's discipline of them, bring home flowers or gifts unexpectedly, being sensitive to her wants and needs, etc., etc..

it's important to remember that this was from the idyllic 50's. both sides were expected to give 110% to the other. the sky was the limit.

Well, I tried reading that while she was sleeping last night and next thing I remember is waking up on the couch.

Will try again tonight and update you on the new results!

Men are only king of their castle until the queen comes home.

Most women in those days did not work outside the house that has changed dramatically as most women now have jobs to help support the family. So to expect little wifey to wait on men hand and foot when they also put in a full work day just ain't gonna happen. Usually they still have a ton of stuff to do when they get home anyway dealing with the kids, dinner etc hopefully DH will pitch in. If he doesn't it could cause a lot of resentment. IMHO
