I hate to burst the bubble, but...

that's how I am! I heard that article read on the radio and people were laughing at how "ridiculous" and "mindless" it was.
Of course back then, when wives did take care of their homes and made sure the food was on the table nightly, the kids were calmed down and she looked like she made an attempt to look nice for her husband, it was a nicer, more pleasant time, and there was a general respect about people. No constant questioning of authority, no talking back to teachers, and kids would say "yes, ma'am" and "no, ma'am". Take me back!!

I have always said I was born about 50 years too late.

Treated like royalty!!!!!!
Try it, you'll like it. I promise.

I'm with you SQ

Some men are not all men. For the matter some women are not all women. Neither gender should be generalized. What SQ sais is, IMHO the missing key to family life. True, now both parties must work to support the household. Neither gender should come home expected to be waited upon.

Treating your spouse like royalty does not necessarily mend waiting on them. All to many people forget the "For better or worse" part of the vows.
Wow, Y'all made me get serious.

We were remodeling the basement and had been carrying and hanging sheetrock for about 14 hours. We were both tired, sweaty, hungry, and crotchety. Dw asked a question and my answer was a snarkey. She just said to me "What you can do I cannot, what I can do you cannnot, but together we can make something beautiful." The basement looks great.

Some of it is okay, having dinner ready. It's a nice thing to do, but thinking that your husbands opinions or whatever mean more than yours, I don't know about that...

I am so glad that my bride wasn't like that article says. I'd die of boredom.

Give me a woman with a brain and leave the domestic behind. Yeah, I guess my wife might have bought into some of that then (how ever we were babies back then) but she was taught by her farm wife Mother and farm wives work.

It is not about a clean house for them but sharing the work necessary for the family. If that means doing the milking and chores while daddy sets on a tractor from dawn to dusk plowing and disking and planting... that is what she does. Keeping the kids quite at night so as to not bother daddy is a joke. They were working all day too. They goto bed, so much for the noise.

I think that article was a joke even then if it was ever published.
