<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TT>The following is an actual excerpt from a 1950's Home Economics Textbook, intended for high school girls, teaching them how to prepare for married life and become good wives. My how times have changed!!!???</TT>

<TT> </TT>

<TT>"Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal--on time. 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 prospects of a good meal are part of the warm welcome needed.</TT>

<TT>Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your makeup, 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. His boring day may need a lift.</TT>

<TT>Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives, gathering up school books, toys, paper, etc.. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order. It will give you a lift too.</TT>

<TT>Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.</TT>

<TT>At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quite. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and be glad to see him.</TT>

<TT>Some don'ts: Don't greet him with problems or complaints. Don't complain if he is late for dinner. Count this as minor compared with what he might have gone through that day at work. Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax--unwind.</TT>

<TT>Listen to him, you may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first. Make the evening his. Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or other places of entertainment. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure, and his need to be home and relax.</TT>

<TT>The goal. Try to make your home a place of peace and order, where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.</TT>


Holy cow!! Thats hilarious.. I dont mind cooking for my SO from time to time, but i could never live my lift like that. Thank god i was born so many years later!!

That reminds me of the Stepford wives. I saw it on Friday, funny movie- Love Nicole Kidman. My SO loved it the most!!! He got a kick out of the whole concept. When we got home he was looking at me a lil funny, so I made sure not to go to sleep before he did LMAO!!
