‘Wives – Want to Keep your Husband Happy?’

‘Don’t expect new dresses all the time’: Old-fashioned newspaper advice on how to be a good wife…

We’ve been working with some modern newspapers on a story about the advice that old newspapers used to publish about how wives might strive to keep their husbands happy.

Amazing as it may seem to us now, such advice columns were a regular feature in UK newspapers during the 1800s and early 1900s.

The ‘Mail Online’ has published our story, and we thought visitors to this page might be interested in reading some of these ‘advice to wives’ articles.
