An extract from a 1950 home economics book has been doing the rounds on social media recently, proving just how much the times have changed.

Titled ‘Tips to Look After Your Husband’ the excerpt advises housewives on how they can make their home a “place of peace and order.”

Cringing over the outdated advice, Fairsy claims he would be “dead meat” if he expected this kind of treatment from his wife.

Big Breakfast caller Allan from Launceston shares his thoughts, wishing he could have someone at his beck and call in this day and age.

“That would have been paradise…now I know why my dad was always so happy,” Allan says.
