Are You a Good Wife?
And I thought Mona Lisa Smile was enough to make me realize I'll be in jail if I lived in the 50s...
I got this from mr. commuter today. It happens to be an article published on May 13, 1955 by Housekeeping Monthly. And it is titled "The Good Wife's Guide."
Reading this, I CERTAINLY know I would not be good for a husband who expects his wife to be like this. Acquiescence is a virtue.
I even DOUBT if I'd be a wife.
Well, probably. Then my husband shows up on TV after a month,
BEGGING telling men to stay single or not to get one like me.
If this would be published today, it would probably come out in a lampoon issue (not even in an Idiot's Guide) or its title would be changed: _______ Wife's Guide.
What adjective do you think would fit?
