The Good Wife's Guide

This is an actual article in Housekeeping Monthly in 1955. Even though I would love to absolutely light this up for humor's sake with comments, I would much rather sleep in my bed instead of out on the porch in the cold tonight.

I don't think I want to comment either--you would instantly recognize my soapbox.

We could sure use a guy like Herbert Hoover again.

Do you know where I could get a wife?

There is an interesting (and somewhat depressing) companion article to this in the 10/30 issue of the NYTimes called "What's a Modern Girl to Do?" by Maureen Dowd: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/30/magazine/30feminism.html?ex=1131685200&en=b1a9234010159e1e&ei=5070
