Wonder if anyone here has heard of a book called 'Fascinating Womanhood' published in that same era.
(no, I'm not in that age group :wink: ) Dispenses the same old outdated gibberish and basically teaches a woman how to be a passive doormat whose sole function in life is to cater and pander to a man's ego.

You know what they say Plavt, " I can bring home the bacon and fry
it up in a pan and still find time to keep my man!!" No they're not my words but it seems to apply to lots of women these days.
One man's meat is another's poison.

Good idea. That way, when it shows up again in the divorce file, you'll know exactly what they're referring to. :P

I can't help but notice the article is full of pencil markings and highlights. It is like somebody has been studying it and having it memorized. So has Mrs. S commit these points to her memory :lol: ?


I counted and there were 18 bullet points. Unfortunately, I agree with almost all the points (except for the part where it states the mens' needs precede over the womens', not very fair to the wife as we are all humans and we all need to have our needs taken care of). More unfortunate that I broke every single one of them readily and without restrain (hopefully not all 18 rules simultaneously). We all try our best but alas, we are only humans.

I think it is a very human (man or woman) desire , the need to come home to a safe, well-kept and nurturing environment after all that stress and beatings you face at work.

Point #6 ".........catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction. "

Here's my hubby's take (directed at moi :lol: ) upon reading the above pointer. He said I am always searching for meaning and personal fufilment (took up knitting and other activities at one point or another, the incessant material goods acquisition blah, blah, blah.... ) but to no avail. He suggests I stop looking elsewhere but to......... him and do as point #6 and ultimately find the true happiness/fulfulment in my life.

According to him, this is a very authoritative guide (over 50 years old) and you can't go wrong with the advice.
