A Good Wife's Guide According To Lupoman



Okay Lupoman...this is for you!!!

Read this from an article from Housekeeping Monthly May 13, 1955...okay gals - hold on to your hats.

Some things to take note of just before the man of the house comes home at night.

1. 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 prospect of a good meal (especially his favourite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.

2. Preprare 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.

3. 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.

4. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.

5.Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc. and then run a dustcloth over the tables.

6. Over 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 for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.

7. 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.

8. Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world if strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.

9. Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranqullity where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.

10. Don't greet him with complaints and problems.

11. Don't complain if he's late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compred to what he might have gone through that day.

12. Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.

13. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.

14. Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or interity. 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.

....and last but not least.....A GOOD WIFE ALWAYS KNOWS HER PLACE.

Could this be the reason I am divorced and have not found Mr. Right"....ohhhh please - Sue
