Practical Tips For Women and More

Someone blog about this in here, it reminds me of that movie called Monalisa Smile (2003) with Julia Robert, Kirsten Dunst and Julia Stiles in it.

I feel very lucky not to live in the 1950’s =) so I guess no one will be expecting me to function under those principals below for a wife, but it would be nice if one could, which I think would be pretty hard for current standard life-style having the fact that woman has to work also aside of house-wifing (for the lack of better term I like to call it that).

Want a healthy relationship? don’t see each other as a servant, just ought to help each other in order to establish a healthy and balance relationship. Women and Men both are created to be one in marriage as a harmonious companion – not like so men can be masters and women their forever servants/helper with a degree below them. eekk, I don’t want a man like that!


well incase the picture above has a very small print I’ve re-write all the points here:

  1. Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and they prospect of a good meal (especially his favorite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.
  2. Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you’ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.
  3. Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
  4. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.
  5. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper etc and then run a dust cloth over the tables.
  6. Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order and it will five you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  7. Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair and if necessary, change their clothes, They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.
  8. Be happy to see him.
  9. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  10. Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first – remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
  11. Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
  12. Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order and tranquility where you husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
  13. Don’t greet him with complaints and problems.
  14. Don’t complain if he’s late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.
  15. Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
  16. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
  17. Don’t ask him question about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
  18. A good wife always knows her place.
