YA THINK BEING A WIFE IN 2022 IS HARD?

Of course, it is. But being a wife in the 1950s was even harder. Here are some rules, thanks to old marriage advice books, that wives were supposed to follow:

* Don’t bother your husband with petty troubles and complaints when he comes home from work. Let him tell you
his troubles: yours will seem trivial in comparison.

* Bad cooking will drive your man to seedy saloons.

* What if your man strays after marriage? The “experts” suggested that in case of an occasional lapse
on the part of the husband — forgive and forget. Or better still — make believe you know nothing.

* And finally, if you were a good wife in
the 1950s you agreed that your husband was the boss of you.
