I grew up in the 50's, that graphic pretty well describes my mother's lifestyle. BUT by the time the 70's got here, she was, let's just say, a little less tolerant of dad. Their roles had almost reversed.
WOW! how did a woman live back then? now adays my father gets home be for my mother and they both complain about their work days... can't imagin living in the 50s! whats it goign to be like when I get married and have kids...maybe the daddy will do all the work....hmmmmmmmm

Ok, some of it I like - getting things ready for the man's return, that sort of thing. [don't start the flames yet] But that's if she WANTS to do something for her man, not because it's her "duty." Really, what kind of modern man would want that subserviant of a woman? Not me. And the bit about his topics of converstation being more important - oh please! For me, unless there's something on my mind, I'd love to hear about my woman's day - it's something different from what I've dealt with all day. Wow.
Of course, I always did think one of the nicest ways for a woman to greet her man after a long hard day would to be waiting at the door with his beverage of choice in hand. Wearing a ... smile. But that's me. No, I'm not sexist, but noting would excite me more than to come home to that. Remember, you have to want to please each other, or what's the point?
When my husband is the perfect man, brings me roses weekly, treats me like a queen, and always cares about how I feel, then I might believe in the above, but since that will never happen, oh freakin well, sorry for you guys!!
