The Good Wife's Guide...WHAT?!

I had to share this article from a 1955 issue of Housekeeping Monthly.  It is hilarious!  I cannot believe that this was the way women lived!  The most astonishing lines?

"Remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours." 

"Don't complain if he comes home late for dinner or even if he stays out all night."  

I think I'll hold off on giving this to my husband for Christmas but will definetely save it for April Fool's Day!


  1. WOW! Those rules SOOO don't apply to our household! I am in shock! I mean I know the 50's was somewhat like that but dang!

    hugs! Kim @ Party Frosting!

  2. Okay, I hate to say this but I feel like some of the rules apply in our sad, but true. My hubby was raised in a very mom does this dad does this house and for some reason I have let that happen in our house!

  3. Hmmm, is there a good husband's guide? And I wonder if it's a guy or gal who wrote that "amazing" article.

  4. Yes, I have seen this before. April Fool's Day indeed.
