A friend of mine sent this to me via email a while back, and I had to snort and snicker while reading it. This was actually published in home economicsschool textbooks in the 1950s in preparing young girls to be good wives to their husbands when they got married around the age of 20 — this was the norm. If you notice, it is all about sacrificing yourself for the man. His needs come first.
The running motif here is “woman, be silent”. Thank goodness we are not required to act this way anymore. I don’t know what kind of wife I make, but I am more concerned about what kind of woman I am and what kind of parent I am to my children. And for all that it’s worth, I am not silent about anything. I don’t think anyone should be — man, woman, or child.
What about you? What kind of wife are you?
