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 art of the Stepford Wife is to make it all seem effortless. Let the day glide by as if you haven’t lifted a finger…and look forward to the night when we do our real work.
With a smile to show how glad we are to be with him!
