It is very sad that in the 21st century there are those who think women are lesser mortals! I have a close 'born again' relative who thinks she should be submissive to her husband's wishes! :o My husband would be hanging by his dangly bits from the nearest church steeple if he was of the same opinion. Of course I would never have married him if he hadn't treated me as his equal.

There may be a few women who feel like your relative, sj, also some who, frankly, like to be at home cleaning and ironing, but they are few and far between now and have been for some time.
That video was very good, I remember it on TV, but it was satire. The 1950s are long past.

She had a demanding job before she retired, but was still expected to raise the children, do all the things in the house and also help her husband a pastor! :twisted:

He is now retired and at least she doesn't have the 100 or so (no exaggeration) people through their home each week whom she was expected to feed! :o

It's a funny thing, though, that in the past (& maybe nowadays in some cases), people accepted that sort of burden and what is more were expected to get on with it. I daresay she could have put limits in place and insisted on regular time off.

She should have done so, imo, but of course it is her life, not mine.
