Your husband is a saint.

This ones for you ladies, I want you to see just how good you've got it.

I recently came across some advertising that shows just how far we have come as a nation in the last 50 years.

This brand has been around since 1878 and is still sold today. It seems that as late as the fifties it was OK to spank your wife if she didn't do what you told her. I'm guessing none of you have been spanked for not "store testing" your coffee.
Please take note of the socks this guy is wearing, argyle rules.

The Kenwood Chef was unveiled in the early seventies so this slice of Americana is quite recent and within most of out lifetimes. I'm guessing that this is what my mom had to deal with.

That's what wives are for! She is so happy to have a man that treats her so well.

This last one is my absolute favorite.

I don't even know where to begin with this, apparently ladies the harder you work around the house the hotter you get. Think of the weight loss that comes with the constant motion of dusting and vaccuming in high heels, and the rosy glow on your cheeks from all the excertion. And what was in that box of PEP from Kellog's I don't think it was vitamins.

OK so maybe your husband isn't a saint but he probably helps out a lot more around the house than his dad or grandpa ever did and that is evolution. Most of the men I know are pretty well trained with most things domestic and that's probably how it should be. Maybe we could do better but let's just leave that to the next generation.

Hard to believe that was the attitude just a few decades ago. Just reading it makes me crazy/mad/relieved/incredulous. Seriously... 'what your wife is for?' Ergh.
