    Yes,I guess it was “the good ole days” for the guys. It could be that way again if
    “the guys” can bring in enough money to support a family without the little wife working.
    NOW, she comes home after working just like the man,and has to continue with the “Good Wife’s
    Guide”. SOMETHING IS JUST NOT RIGHT WITH THIS PICTURE.

    Ok I think this “article” is an internet joke, I have tried to find the original “article” to no avail. did this “magazine” actually exist?

    I agree with Debra, this looks like a joke to me. half of it would have been convincing, but it went over the top with the stay out allnight bit.

  4. Mark says:

    I have a copy of the article (scanned and emailed). I guess it did exist.

    Ummmmmmm…this is about as stupid as something can get! the last thing “a good wife always knows her place” , yeah…in front of the man!

    i think patsy is way off saying that if men these days made enough money that they would have it that good again. it will NEVER be the same regardless of how much money a man brings in because women of today have realized that we are not second class citizens or anyone’s slaves for that matter.

    Things are no different now than it was in 1955! They read this in the press then, and we read lies in the press today… OKรขโ‚ฌยฆ creative story telling! รขโ‚ฌยฆ called sensation! It just happens MUCH more today! The difference is, in 1955 it was read, and talked about with tongue in cheek… Today the “educated” society we live in, believe everything they read, be it in the press or on the net. We are too lazy to think for ourselves.
    Now, as for the article… I’m sure it was written by a guy with many wishes, who did not have a wife he loved and cared for. Yes, reading it sounds like a nice environment to come home to at night. But, our accomplishments in life should pay for it as a hired service (if we want it that way), and it should not be expected from the one we love and cherish. She has a much more important purpose in life… to be my wife I am proud of having next to me, to be a mother, leader and example to our children and to help teach them the important values in life to be upstanding members of society, as it is my responsibility to provide the environment and resources she needs to do it.
    Often husbands are not able to provide all that is needed and mom needs to jump in and help earn the living. Nothing wrong with that! But if I need help with my responsibilities, I owe it to her to help with hers!
    There are some responsibilities and tasks in life that husbands and wives can’t trade, but for the most part these roles are interchangeable and can be fulfilled by either, if they so choose. No one responsibility is more important than the other. Life is a responsibility we took on, and we decided to take it on together, the day we hooked up. If the wife is not the “slave” he wanted her to be, he should find an honest way to earn enough to pay for the services, start appreciating his wife as a partner and let her be a real mother.
    As no husband should expect his wife to be his slave, should no wife expect to live a life of running up the credit cards while hubby is working for a living… I’m sure this could generate some discussion!
    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

    Hey Really,
    I agree with most of the comments you made. I beleive that women still feel this pressure to please their husbands and women still dress in certain ways and act certain ways to gain the approval of men.
    I also agree with your comment that a woman’s labor is seriously under valued. I mean being a housewife is not an easy task and by no means does anyone have any right to say that a man’s work is “harder” than her’s.
    Yah but just look around in the media around you. Sexist messages like these are everywhere.

    Well, aren’t you the enlightened “Men”!
    You’re so Politically Correct, so conditioned of thought, fearful of the dreaded Offensive Word. Hey, I bet you watch Oprah too! Do you sit down when you take a leak?!
    Look, grow a pair, tell her to get in there, rattle them pots and pans for a change, and get you a beer while she’s at it!
    Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go empty the trash – coming dear!

    Go take a look at snopes, if you would. The story, while not proven to be a fraud, has never been found in any bonafied magazine. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a feeling it’s a bit of satire, myself.

  11. Heathaaa says:

    LOL at how this started such a controversial conversation in the comments!! It is SO easy to photoshop and old newspaper or magazine like article. Whoever said this is an internet joke is right! Come on people! Don’t take everything sooooo serious!! ๐Ÿ™‚
