129 Ways to Get a Husband

“Never marry at all, Dorian. Men marry because they are tired, women, because they are curious: both are disappointed.”

― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

One of the articles – Judging by the filename I think it is from Mccall’s magazine – from sometime in the 50’s.

I was working on my home computer a bit – cleaning out old and useless files… when I came across a folder of images called “husband.” It has clips of a couple of magazine articles from the 50’s on how to get a husband. Some files had the name “Mccalls” in it – so some must be from that magazine. If you want to know, I looked it up to see what happened to the magazine – after a bit over a century and a quarter of popularity it was sold to Rosie O’Donnell and was renamed Rosie in 2001. Not surprisingly, it folded a year later.

I have no idea where these images came from or why they are on my computer. Some are a bit amusing, though. If you are looking for a husband, here’s a few tips from seventy five or so years ago.

If they help – you can thank me later.
