How To Be A Good Wife

The art of being a good wife is not an easy one. But long before Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, couples turned to self-help booklets. This little guide was originally written for the middle classes of the 1930s who were reading one of the first modern self-help books.

Marriage can be a series of humorous miscommunications, a power struggle, or a diplomatic nightmare. Men and women have long struggled to figure each other out—and the misunderstandings can continue well after they’ve been joined in matrimony Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example: It is a wife's duty to look her best. If you don't tidy yourself up, when you have done the bulk of the day's work, don't be surprised if your husband begins to compare you unfavourably with the typist at the office. Don't forget that a wife can always set the standard of behaviour for the home. If she allows laxities of dress or conversation at the table she will soon find that they become a fixed procedure. Entertaining and charmingly illustrated, How to Be a Good Wife offers enduringly useful advice for all couples, from the newly engaged to those celebrating their golden anniversary. Hard Back Book. Length – 92 Pages
