The 1950s seemed like a much simpler time. Men went off to work in a suit and hat carrying a briefcase while the women stayed home and tended to the household chores. Women were expected to cook, clean and care for the children during the day while their husbands were busy at the office making money to support the family. While the world has changed quite a bit over the past 60 years, there are some things that the men of today can learn from the men of the past.
Provide for your wife and family financially. The typical 1950s wife stayed at home to cook, clean and take care of the children. Having a good job that provides health benefits and enough income to keep your family comfortable should be one of the top priorities.
Make sure that your wife feels appreciated. When you come home to a clean house and a hot meal, be sure to thank your wife for providing you with these things. Surprising her with flowers or another small gift will take you far.
Keep the romance alive. Housewives of the 1950s were always dressed to impress, even when they had nowhere to go. Compliment her on how nice she looks. Take her out for a nice dinner every so often and let her know how special she is to you.
Check in with your children. When Junior got into trouble at school, the wife would likely wait until the husband got home from work to have a talk with him. Be sure to balance out your parenting skills and fulfill the duties that your wife cannot. Take time out of your busy schedule to spend with your family.
Be happy to see her. We all have bad days but try to leave those out of the home. If work was stressful, leave those negative feelings at the office. This doesn't mean you cannot communicate about worries or troubles, just try to enjoy each others company and focus on a happy household.
