The Return of the Mrs.
SURVEY OF THE DECADES - HUSBANDS TODAY
A Look at Husbands in the 2000s
In the "husbands" section, my goal is to somehow capture and illustrate how husbands have changed (or not) since the 1940s. This is proving to be one of the more difficult tasks I have undertaken because much of what has been written is about women and wives and relationships, and husbands are sort of left standing in the shadows. So, to start out, I googled "the perfect husband". Not that there is such a thing, but I wanted to see what we thought a perfect husband might look like.
Exhibit 1: Here is an ad for the men's
clothiers Brooks Brothers - perhaps this how we picture our perfect
husband? (At least in style and appearance and the ability to
arrange themselves neatly according to height/age when sitting on park
benches...and my goodness, they are all carrying umbrellas! Fancy the
odds of that!)
Here are some of my findings:
