Default Ladies, read and learn.

"The Good Wife's Guide"
published in Housekeeping Monthly, May 13, 1955.

1. Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs.
2. Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you’ll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh looking.
3. Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.
4. Gather up schoolbooks, toys, paper, etc. and then run a dust cloth over the tables.
5. Over the cooler months of the year you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
6. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
7. Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first remember, his topics of conversation are more important.
8. Make the evening his. Never complain if he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you. Instead try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
9. Don’t greet his with complaints and problems. Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will and fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.

Does number 10 read :

remember that after doing points 1 to 9 over a period of time and quashing your own desires, wants and needs in favour of his only, you will end up wanting to seriously harm him or kill him.

He's abroad half the time so I do really command.

I give him a bit of slack when he comes home. It makes him think I'm grateful for his presence when all the time I've been learning how to use his drill, his tiling tools, his workshop etc. Very soon the poor guy won't be needed at all
