The Good Wife....



Most of you have probably gotten this in an email before. It's pretty funny. It is supposed to be an actual guide on how to be a good wife. Although there is speculation on the authenticity of this, it is still fun to read. I didn't want to retype this, so I just posted a link to someone else's site.

The Good Wife Guide


There is a link to Snoopes.com that tells a little about the origins of this list. It mentions a book called "Fascinating Womanhood". I have that book. My mom gave it to me when I was a teenager. I think I tried to start reading it when I was a teenager. I never did finish the book because it made me mad. I thought it would be interesting to read it now that I am an adult with an adult brain and see if it is still offensive to me or not.

Fun post! I'm a sucker for old fashioned womanhood, so I actually appreciate articles like this. I read Mom's copy of "Fascinating Womanhood" several years ago and I'm totally a fan.

Though , let me not forget to include that I would never go to such extremes as noted in this article! Funny!

That is a funny article. I'm pretty sure it is not a real guide from back then.

Now that you have given "Fascinating Womanhood" a thumbs up, I will try reading it again. I'm pretty sure I'd like it better now that I have matured and settled down a bit. I'll let you know if it annoys me like it used to.

Hi cousin! My sister helped me out on my page. I think she went to cutestblogontheblock.com or something like that. It has a lot of cute backgrounds to choose from.
No, I've never read "The good wife" but now you've peaked my curiosity. I think I'll check it out!
Love,
Debbie
