Housewife Article From 1955 Titled 'The Good Wife’s Guide' Is Embarrassing

"The Good Wife's Guide" was originally published May 13th, 1955, in a magazine called, "Housekeeping Monthly." 

As the title of the article suggests, these 18 bullet points is the guideline on how to be a "good wife." From nonstop house chores to pampering your husband and never ever questioning anything he says and does. 

Really?

This article reminds us of another hilarious article from 1958 on how to find a husband.

Thank goodness times have changed because these 18 bullet points sound unbearable.
