Eta: my mother has such old fashioned views on how to keep a man happy.
-I should sleep in prettier things
- I shouldn't let him see me groom myself
- if he's tired, I should let him sleep in (no mention of if I'm tired)
- hot meals, happy kids, clean houses.
- I should try to be pretty when he comes home. (Our definition of pretty is vastly different)
I could go on.
Even after all the time I've been with my husband, she still worries that he's going to leave or stray (just because my dad was a cheating ass, doesn't mean all men are)
Eta: I don't mean to bash anyone else who agrees or lives this way.
Anyone who has read my posts knows I love to hear how others live even if I don't quite understand.
But my mom who knows me better than anyone knows I am not that woman.
I love her to pieces, but I'm the only girl and she always wanted me to be a GIRL (but that's another post)
