Although we often laugh at old cards and images from the past, the reality is that some of them still hold value – even today. Not much has changed over the years, especially when it comes to how the world sees women. However, we sometimes come across those old traditions that we simple can’t believe people followed back then.
We recently came across a ‘guide’ dating from the 1950s that teaches women on how ‘Wives should treat their husbands’. Yes, you read that right. Was this written by a man? Probably.
The May 1955 edition of ‘Housekeeping Monthly’ published an article titled ‘The Good Wife’s Guide’, and it detailed how a wife should act towards her husband, and how she can be the best partner to her husband and the best mother to her children. Although some of these ‘rules’ seem unacceptable today, it’s interesting to see how society behaved not so long ago. Check out what wives were supposed to behave like in the 1950s below.
