I found this article recently with 7 tips on keeping your man from the 1950s. What do you think?

http://theweek.com...

To sum it up,

1. Don't Talk.

2. Bad cooking will drive your man to seedy saloons.

3. Be the hot steak, not the cheap pork

4. But don't be a sexual vampire or a frigid franny

5. Pink panties are a must

6. Let him have a little fun now and then

7. Your husband is the boss of you

I'm serious.
Perhaps I should have said:
Some of the advice is really good.

Don't talk about your problems when one comes home from work; give your spouse time to unwind.
Sex in moderation.
Making efforts in physical appearances.
Sexism aside, know your role and fulfill it. You and your mate are a team, and you each must fulfill your respective duties, whatever they are. In the 50s, it was men providing for the family, and the wife making sure the man is able to perform (feed and clothe them). Every relationship is different, but each partner in every relationship has a role.

"Don't talk." "Bad cooking will drive your man to seedy saloons."

Sex in moderation.

"Be the hot steak, not the cheap pork... But don't be a sexual vampire or a frigid franny... Let him have a little fun now and then"

Making efforts in physical appearances.

"Pink panties are a must."

You think it's good advice for modern times? Not your re-imagining of it, but the actual advice?

The actual advice was a product of the times. I believe the essence of the advice (for what I cited) can change to meet current times and still be the same advice.

But, I see what you're getting at.

Not being allowed to talk?

Did I cite all of that advice? No. I specifically mentioned the "not talking until after the man has eaten". In other words, let people unwind from work. This is hardly the same as not being allowed to talk. I work two jobs, and after a 14 hour day, the last thing I want to do when I walk through my door is hear my wife talk about an issue (unless it's an emergency). And, when she comes home, she sure doesn't want to have a serious conversation, either. Unwind, then talk.

The other advice in that category I don't agree with. "your problems are less important, so bringing them up is just annoying" is bad advice.

I know you didn't, obviously the times were tough for women.

I caught an episode of True Blood yesterday. I like sexual vampires.
