Im furious

Ladies please read the below and try VERY HARD not to tear your own hair out!

Excerpts from an old housewives book

Your goal is to try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order, tranquillity, where your husband can revive himself himself in body and spirit.

Prepare yourself: take 15 minutes to rest so you'll 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 it is one of your duties to provide it.

Minimise all noise: At the time of his arrival eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer and vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him, greet him with a 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.

Some don'ts:

Don't greet him with problems or complaints.

Don't complain if he is late for dinner, or even if he stays out all night; count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day. Don't ask him about his action or question his judgement or integrity; remember, he is the master of the house and will always exercise this with fairness and truthfulness - you have no right to question him.

A good housewife always knows her place!

Mella you've just summed up our feelings in all the previous posts lol

Oh and guys, feminism is overrated...thing about it! How many of you really want a man in touch with all their emotions...no no ladies...admit it, what every women would love (whether they admit it or not) is to have a man who can make her feel secure, looked after and protected. We all just wanna be protected by our men.

Im all for equal rights obviously, but some things dont have to change...but the above book is exactly as Mella put it lol :D

I'm for equal rights too. I ain't into all this feminism crap. That stuff reminds me of Big Butch Lesbians dressed in suits on power trips.

I like my men to be manly, It's cool for them to be in touch with their emotions but just don't do it infront of me. (I've actually split up with a guy before, for crying infront of me way too much - too soppy.. are you a man or a mouse?!)
I totally agree we wanna feel protected and safe.

Well guys, this article isn't all that old. I remember my Mum showing me a copy of a manual she was given on her pre marraige course in 1971. It was all of this kind of muck.......150 pages of it to be exact. I nearly choked when I read it :mad: I was sure it was a piss take but alas not. That was Ireland, and I'm sure other countries in the 70's.
Shannon, are you lucky things have changed!!! :D
