This is surprisingly fantastic. And they don't treat women like fainting daisies either. It's straight forward and asks the hard questions.
We've lost so much to emotionality.

Do you have a link to where you got this or are you lucky enough to have the magazines on hand?

EDIT : Also, this link has an epub version. :)

Actually, it's a free download on amazon! (I should have mentioned that.)I have the kindle app and look for tons of free older books that people have transcribed into ebooks. There's a bunch of them!

I love this list so much. It really puts things into a simple perspective and gives us a chance to see how responsible we really are for our own happiness, not only our husbands'.

Thanks for this. Now I'm off to download the book!
In the mean time, for several months now I've been employing the advice from "The Good Wife's Guide" from Housekeeping Monthly from the 1950s'. A quick Google search will bring up the article, if you haven't seen it yet. I read that it was a fake, but I don't care. When I started following the guide as closely and consistently as I could, my relationship with my husband instantly became AMAZING. We literally never fight now. We have interesting conversations, laugh together, and appreciate one another. He was always holding up his side of the bargain and being incredibly loving, supportive, and positive. When I started ignoring my selfish, negative tendencies, and learned to be a care taker instead of unconsciously begging him to pay attention to every little thought and emotion while acting as my crutch, I was able to take control of our relationship. We're both very happy now, and I will likely create a more detailed post in the future to talk about how and why it works. Although I'm sure RPW already know this stuff quite well.
