How would you react if someone asked you to explain the things in the 1950s? Maybe you’d mention India’s Constitution Framing or How Film Industry is shaping or the Cold War between the U.S and the U.S.S.A? The first satellites going into orbit? You could do that. Or you could explain how magazines advised women on how to get married the right man. Recently, Kim Marx-Kuczynski from Madison, Wisconsin shared a 1958 McCall’s article, “129 Ways to Get a Husband,” showing just how much times have changed.
The text begins like “In the United States today there are sixteen million women over the age of seventeen who are looking for a long term relationship or the marriage proposal.” “the Majority of these women would like to be proposed.” 16 people were asked to brainstorm some dating tips lonely women could use to get the attention of men, and they shared some tips like ordering rare steaks and no gossiping to crying and getting a hunting license, some of these life hacks sound like common sense, and some seem to be no sense at all. The magazine also asked them to throw their judgments when writing down their dating tips.
In my view, the article is reflective of the then social taboos and 50s dating style, and I found it very fascinating when comparing things that were acceptable then and what is acceptable now. for sure It will make us so grateful that much progress has been made.
In my opinion, if you are looking for a partner just for the sake of being married, then you will end up in a broken relationship. It’s outdated and yes also funny, but it had serious points to throw some light on dating and finding long-lasting relationships.
