Wow. If it weren't for the fact that this was written in '55, I'd swear it was one of the better pieces of satire produced by the folks over at The Onion. I'm a strong supporter of the idea of roles and gifts that run along gender lines, and of the idea that a wife should work to make her husband's life easier (with the same responsibility falling to husbands for their wives, too). But yeesh.

I just forwarded this on to Raina. Maybe it will help. Knowing that it came from someone of great wisdom as yourself, she may take it seriously.....NOT!!

I tried it too, Dan! Didn't work. I tried to explain how it all comes straight from the Bible, but she didn't buy it! :)
