A source of amusement......

Read carefully ladies......and try to contain your laughter!!!!! Last weekend several of us friends spent the entire weekend together at a friend's cabin (an adult weekend!....I know...very rare and hard to come by) The above paper was posted on the refrigerator. As it was being read out loud, the men were lovin' it and in total agreement, and, of course, us women were laughing. (Mind it was being read, one of the husbands was washing the dishes......we've come a long way baby!!)

Notice the date this was printed.......I kept wondering if this article was true or not because I find it almost offensive...ok, some of it IS offensive..."don't complain if he's late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day." Really????

To say the was a great source of amusement for us all....the men, of course, kept referring back to it all weekend.......gee, I'm surprised it didn't end up in the bonfire! teehee

I checked it on states that this is "from a 1950's home economics textbook intended for high school girls, teaching them how to prepare for married life." However, snopes also states that it is "undetermined" whether this is fact or not.......sooooo all you wonderful ladies out there......I would love to hear your comments on this topic. Especially if you were married back in the 1950s......

The "good wives" and their hubbies
