Like the the 1950's housewives. I'm a sahm so I'm willing to give it a try. A lot from what I've read I do (I think?) What do you think a 1950's housewife did? If you can make schedules that you think they followed etc I'd appreciate it. If not just list the chores.

He wants a submissive maid who has no mind of her own.

Sounds romantic :)

Okay, is he asking for just an old fashioned wife or a full on submissive wife?

There is a post could you handle the 50's or
Something. That is what it is like. It was created today I believe.

Google The Good Wife's Guide

Its a list of things that were expected from housewives at the time.

Also try peacefulwife, a blogger on the submissive wife lifestyle

Good luck. I'm an old fashioned girl myself. I love it :-)

He's not asking me to do his every command. More like home cooked meals, clean house, attentive, yadda yadda

I was a 50s housewife. It worked for us. DH also did help when I needed it and pitched in with the kids. Its not submissive/dominant, its a partnership where both sides demand respect. Now that I'm working too things are split 50/50 and he has no problem with it.

Do what works for your relationship. I did all the laundry, cooking, dishes and main cleanng. Dh would help pick up and clean occasionally on the weekends. He'd take care of the outside and the vehicles, the outside is his domain, the inside is my domain.

If you read the housewife recommendation post that's going around, you'll realize lots of cocktails are involved

Why would you have to be a 50s wife for that? I think women now a days are more than capable of that and more.

I don't see anything wrong with it as willing as he's willing to be the 50's husband. You can't want a wife to go back in time while you're a progressive nutjob ignoring your family for me-me-me time all the time.
