A Stepford Wife Is Not Complete Without Her Smile….

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Proverbs 31 in the good book may outline many of the qualities to be a strong, good, hard-working wife. Many of our readers who are terrific individuals who work hard at their marriage and relationship on top of their daily routine know this. However, what sets a Stepford Wife apart is that you should do all this – on top of your daily work – with a big, bright smile.

A Stepford Wife may work hard – at cooking, cleaning, taking care of and pleasing the man in our lives, but it means nothing unless we do it with a smile, especially a smile for him.

We look at it this way: smiling is the cherry on top of dressing nice, being neat and clean, courteous and polite, and staying in shape.

Constant dieting and exercise are great. Never complaining and sugar-coating everything as if your station in life is the greatest thing is wonderful, but smiling is the crown that should sit on all that hard work. Smiling means we are happy to be compliant and submissive to our man’s needs and his happiness.

The Great Grand Matriach of the Stepford Wives: Helen o’ Loy

Lester Del Rey

Sci-Fi author Lester del Rey

My sister Carolyn’s in the midst of writing a review and mini-analyses of all the Stepford movies/tv movies/remake. In her travels and research, she’s come across an interesting tidbit. Long long before Ira Levin’s original novella The Stepford Wives in 1972, science fiction writer Lester del Rey wrote a short story about a robotic wife entitled Helen O’ Loy. The story was published in 1938.

The story is about two scientist who builds a wife that cooks and cleans. It turns out she’s very good at what she does, but since it was in the early stages of development, she was smothering the man she was with. But as things progressed, Helen realizes how much she wants to be a wife and a human (in that order). The men try to pull the plug, but at the last moment, one decides he couldn’t do it, and ends up marrying her. The men age with time, but Helen doesn’t. After he husband dies, she requests the surviving friend to give her an artificial death by way of acid (yikes).

You can read the entire story here online at google books: Lester del Rey’s Helen O’ Loy
