Stepford Resolutions for a Happy New Year! The Stepford 10 Commandments

Bookmark and Share


Many readers of Stepford Wives Organization have asked us what they should read or websites they should visit. There is no quick solution, but if we had to summarise into simple steps we would provide the following. You can consider these the REAL Stepford Ten Commandments at the Stepford Wives Organization Website.

It is said that you have to do something 21 days in a row to turn an act into a habit, but studies have shown it is more likely three times that amount. So you may have to put your nose to the grindstone for 3 months before it becomes automatic.

1. Memorise and repeat bible phrase Peter 1 3:1 putting yourself in the first person. So,

I, a married woman, am to be submissive to my husband [subordinate myself as being secondary to and dependent on him, and adapt myself to him], so that even if he does not obey the Word [of God], he may be won over not by discussion but by the [godly] lives of a wife,

When he observes the pure and modest way in which I conduct myself, together with my reverence [for my husband; I am to feel for him all that reverence includes: to respect, defer to, revere him–to honor, esteem, appreciate, prize, and, in the human sense, to adore him, that is, to admire, praise, be devoted to, deeply love, and enjoy my husband].

2. Always wake up before husband, dress in your best clothes, groom yourself and put make up on. A Stepford wife lets her husband wake up to the best image of her.

3. Always put on sexy underwear, even if you dress conservatively. A husband should be entreated to decorative underclothing whenever and wherever he decides to help himself.

4. Always speak in a little girl voice to your husband. Don’t talk to any male strangers when go out or are in the absence of your husband.

5. At least once a day, ask your husband what you should do and whatever he says, admiringly say “you’re right” or “that’s wise.”

6. Homecook 3-5 meals a day. It may be more depending upon your husband’s appetite.

7. Touch your husband at least once a day. This may be as simple as touching his arm, stroking his back, kissing him or giving him a hug. Sex for bonus points!

8. Eat little or next to nothing. Small portions of vegetables. Stay thin at all cost.

9. Always do what he tells you to with a big smile, without protest.

10. Always appear slower, or clueless around your husband. Dumbing yourself down shows you are dependent on his intelligence and fortifies his male pride.

    Do you think there are some husbands that just aren’t attracted to this kind of women? My husband might be one if there is. We’ve been pretty happily married for 30 years and although I’ve been rather traditional, I found this website when I thought I could “up my game” a little. But he seems irritated. The first couple times I asked about my dress he said I looked great, but the last time he said “You can dress yourself – you’re not 6 years old.” He wants me to handle our budget and he talks to me about his work problems. He asks my opinions and seems to get bugged when I say something like “you know best” or “I know you can work this out – you always make such good decisions.” Now he wants me to make all the decisions and manage (when he isn’t home) the contractors coming to our house. His mom and sisters aren’t at all Stepford wife types – I think he wants me to be more like them. Should I pull back a little?

    Hi Tech wife. This is a very common dilemma, as many modern men have been raised in an environment of the liberated woman. Perhaps the Stepford Wife model is not for your situation. We can’t stress enough: not all men want Stepford Wives. We have NO agenda to encourage any woman a Stepford wife if she doesn’t nor needs to be one. But your question is a good one: what happens when you want to be a Stepford Wife and your husband is not the take charge type. We hear this question in emails often, and hope to address it shortly in a new category we call Q&A! Thanks for writing, and stay in touch!

    Love #9 before we got married my husband told me he wanted someone who listened and did what he said no questions. Wish I would’ve known about the stepford life then things would’ve started off easier.
