a good wife always knows her place
- have dinner ready. plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. 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 (especially his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed
- prepare yourself. take 15 mins to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. touch up your makeup, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking. he has just been with alot of work weary people!
- be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. his boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
- prepare the children. take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces, comb their hair and if necessary change their clothes. they are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. minimise all noise. at the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer and vacuum.
- listen to him. you may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. let him talk first - remember his topic of conversation are more important than yours
- don't complain if he is 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
- arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice
- don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgement or integrity. remember he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. you have no right to question him
but wait ! there is more - if you would like a copy email me your postal details and I will quite happily post one to you firstname.lastname@example.org
ha! I am so grateful that I wasn't a wife in 1955! I love my soul mate & I am happy that I am a housewife but I sure don't follow these rules.
