How To Be a Good Husband and Wife

Is a man’s home his castle? Is she always the perfect homemaker? Here are two fun and kitschy retro guides that will help you to keep your spouse happy. Apparently, the journal Ladies Homemake Monthly had a famous adage which was “You can judge a good husband by how well-dressed his wife and children were and contentment of his wife.”

True or not, it is still cute — even in a innocent sexist way. Both guides can be obtained for under $10 through Amazon, a great gift for someone who loves retro culture and living.
