It's Official #Good Wife (warning: no Salome content)

Subject: A Good House Wife

A Good House Wife

This is an extract from an Home Ecomonics guide from the 60's on how to be a good house wife.

Thank God that times have changed!!

Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious
meal ready on time for his return from work.

This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs.

Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal (especially his favourite dish)is part of the warm welcome needed.

Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when
he arrives.

Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. He has just been with a lot of work weary 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 clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives. Gather up school books, toys,
papers etc. and then run a dust cloth over the tables.

During the colder months of the year you should prepare and light a fire
for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a 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.

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.

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 a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his
arrival is not the time. Let him talk first, remember his topics of conversation are more important than yours.

Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out
to dinner or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to
understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be
at home and relax.

Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquillity
where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

Don't greet him with complaints and problems.

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

Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that
day.

Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have
him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
Arrange the pillow and offer to take off his shoes.

Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice. Don't ask him questions
about his actions or question his judgement or integrity. Remember, he is
the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with
fairness and truthfulness.

Once he has had a chance to have his evening meal clear the dishes and
wash up promptly. If your husband should offer to help decline his offer as
he may feel obliged to repeat this offer and after a long working day he
does not need the extra work.

Encourage your husband to pursue his hobbies and interests and be
supportive without seeming to encroach. If you have any little hobbies yourself try not to bore him speaking of these, as women's interests are often rather trivial compared to men's.

At the end of the evening tidy the home ready for the morning and again
think ahead to his breakfast needs. Your husband's breakfast is vital if he
is to face the outside world in a positive fashion.

Once you have both retired to the bedroom prepare yourself for bed as
promptly as possible. Whilst feminine hygiene is of the utmost importance
your tired husband does not want to queue for the bathroom as he would
have to do for his train. But remember to look your best when going to bed.

Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. If you need
to apply face-cream or hair-rollers wait until he is asleep as this can be
shocking to a man last thing at night. (!!!!)

When it comes to the possibility of intimate relations with your husband
it is important to remember your marriage vows and in particular your
commitment to obey him. If he feels that he needs to sleep immediately then so be it.

In all things be lead by your husband's wishes, do not pressure him in any
way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress then
accede humbly all the while being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more
important than a woman's.

Should your husband suggest any of the more unusual practices be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent. It is likely that your husband will then fall promptly asleep so adjust your clothing, freshen up and apply your night time face and hair care
products.

You may then set the alarm so that you can arise shortly before him in the
morning.

This will enable you to have his morning cup of tea ready when he awakes..........

Or just send him out to play golf...it would probably make him happier than this

If I tried to cook for Sam, we would both die of food poisoning.

If I had to cook it would be baked beans on toast, boiled eggs or just plain toast for every meal

My non-existant husband would be 'egg-bound'

Sicy, that's so Jenn knows which threads to skip if she can only check in for a few minutes from an internet cafe while she's in California.

It's the JLS(Jenn Labeling System)'s first test.

Let him talk first, remember his topics of conversation are more important than yours.

being mindful that a man's satisfaction is more
important than a woman's.

women's interests are often rather trivial compared to men's

Where can I find myself a man who will treat me like this???
