People today might tend to chuckle at these housewives, but when you think about it, housewives back in the 40s, 50s, and 60s didn't usually slouch around in a pair of sweats and a t-shirt, even when they were doing heavy house-cleaning projects.
A homemaker would usually wear a "house dress" and an apron, or a pair of capris with a blouse, and often she tied her hair up with a scarf while she was cleaning, but she didn't dress in a careless or grungy manner.
How about us? Do we slap on any ol' thing as we head into the day, or do we take the time to make ourselves presentable, even if we don't wear the "uniform" of the housewife of the 1950s?
I was reading a post, The Six Reasons Marriage Counseling is BS, and this is one thing that really struck me:
"Chances are good that you married an imperfect man who’s perfect for you. Instead of trying to pry his feelings out of him, consider bringing respect back into the relationship by honoring your husband’s masculinity and his choices for himself. If you want more passion in your marriage, there’s no stronger aphrodisiac than respect."
Something to think about.
