    Oh yessss! You're on the new A-level. So your doing it all in one go!

    It's different for us, I'm doing 1951-2007 now, last year was just 50's, 60's and 70's. This year is much better I think

    Any men see themselves delivering the subservient role should they find themselves earning significantly less than their partner?

    I mean, since it sounds 'reasonable' to some that a housewife should do this then equally a lower earning male could and should deliver it too in similar circumstances, right?
    It's interesting isn't it, but I think a lot of 'feminine' attributes have been intertwined into this role, making it completely 'unacceptable' for a man to take on. People still hold this view, even now. History really does shape the world we live in.

    I am going to file a complaint against the Pulitzer Prize award committee for not nominating this book when it came out.

    Aw that's nice of you I'm sure you will have a great time the next time you see her!

    depends.

    if you don't want s**, are happy to eat poorly cooked food, willing to have guinea pigs prioritised over you, are happy to hear me talking about birdwatching and art all day, can clean up after yourself, aren't offended by my ugliness and don't expect me to wear makeup,

    then yeah, i would be a brilliant wife

    Any thoughts?

    When I think about the 50's they don't really seem that far away, but when you read something like this and compare it to our modern day lives the change is just extraordinary!
    If I ever get stuck in the 1950s, remind me to join a convent. That sounds so unbelievably dull that if I had to go through that daily I think I would scream.

    If he's out grinding all of his day at work then I don't see why the wife (if a housewife) shouldn't do a few of the things like dinner. Perhaps not the whole "make the evening his", but it's nothing too shocking.
    You're trolling. But I think it all depends how many hours each of your are working. If one does less then they should do more at home, but really a couple should have shared responsibility.

    Husband version:

    Go to work, perv' on the secretary despite having a wife, screw the secretary, come home, pretend you've had a hard day, allow your wife to wait on you hand and foot, go to bed, repeat.
