The year is 1954. Betty is a housewife living in suburbia. She’s been married for several years when her mother-in-law gives her a pamphlet titled “The Good Wife’s Guide”. Betty is shocked and offended that her mother-in-law thinks that she needs advice on how to keep a nice home and keep her husband happy! After a quick perusal, Betty decides that she does everything that the pamphlet suggests a good housewife should do!
Betty sets out to prove to her mother-in-law AND her husband just what a good wife she is!
Betty always keeps fresh flowers and live plants in the house.
She wants her husband to return to a home that smelled fresh and clean every night! She takes great care of her plants and makes sure that they receive love and attention every day. She never forgets to water them.
This is a part of an ongoing series that we’re working on, the “Bad ’50’s Housewife” series. Join us every week as we share more stories of Bad Housewife Betty’s exploits!
