    Whatever you tried to post, chinese crested, didn't work. Your picture is rexed. I also don't see any discussion - if you fix it, does it belong here or "Found on the Net"?

    I think she is trying to post this:


    However, the authenticity of the graphic is in doubt. Good Wife's Guide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia snopes.com: How to Be a Good Wife

    Snopes comes to the conclusion that the list is a condensation of literature and perspectives from the 1950s and the idea of "joy through subservience." While the graphic itself may not be real, the ideas presented in it certainly were.

    Maybe I should try these tips and see if they work.

    I kind of assumed it was this, snowy, but thanks for posting it.

    That said, I don't see a discussion here - or even an attempt at one in the OP. I'm moving this to Found On The Net unless/until there is one.

  5. well, you know your place snowy...

    what a pleasant mans world in the 50's

    Hmmm..........this could definitely be taken as a Dom/Sub relationship. Amazing that things were that way and even with some of the elderly it still is.

    That sounds like the start of a good pre-nup. ;)

    There needs to be some real research and guidance for both men and women on how they should act to have long term relationships based on what is working. The 60% divorce rate is not what I would consider 'good'.
  12. It was like that when I was a child. When you wrote cards to married female relatives, you always had to address them to the husband - that didnt make sense to me. Divorce was rarer then, but if one partner is always being the servant, cook and concubine, was it just that people were more prepared to live a long term lie - or perhaps the smiling wife pegging out the whitest sheets in the street was happy with her lot. Going from their parents homes, where they would have had little freedom or say in things, to a husbands house where the same applied - like they never grow up, just play at house.
    Do people still live in this way (those without a dungeon and a collection of gimp masks)?
    Would todays man be happier with the 1950's woman? (same exceptions)
