The Good Wife's Guide from Housekeeping Monthly - May, 1955

  • 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 be thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are
    hungry when they get home and the prospect of a good meal is part of the warm
    welcome needed.
  • Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he
    arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking.
    He has just been with a lot 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.
  • Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the
    house just before your husband arrives. Run a dustcloth over the tables.
  • During the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for
    him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and
    order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering to his comfort will
    provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  • Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the
    washer, dryer or vacuum. Encourage the children to be quiet.
  • Be happy to see him.
  • Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  • 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 topics
    of conversation are more important than yours.
  • Don't greet him with complaints and problems.
  • Don't complain if he's late for dinner or even if he stays out all night.
    Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through at work.
  • Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or lie him
    down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
  • 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 judgment 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.
  • A good wife always knows her place.





My favorite was "remember, his topics
of conversation are more important than yours."

Wow, that's kind of wierd actually, because I picked up on the same topic there. Up until that point, although more than a bit sexist, I thought at least see the the author was only encouraging what they thought best to support a "happy family" act, and then it all came crashing down; I started reading less of "you ought to do [such and such] to show you care" and more of "you must do this; it is your place."

I also liked the "You have no right to question him."
