In other words, the wife bought into the husband's plan to have dinner and a BJ waiting for him every night.

Is this how the 50s looked in Britain? My historical memory is off kilter because I only read books about prep school in the post war years there. And about that terrifying animal farm, where the rabbits fought Nazi rabbits. zi

The wife and I do "Retro Weekends" a few times a year, no cell phones, no computers, no TV outside of the local channels for news only.  It is fun.

/She even went out and found a Pyrex Peculator for coffee. Once you figure out how to use one it makes good coffee.
 
2014-07-23 11:28:52 PM  
So instead of bickering daily, she'll be on a constant dose of "mother's little helpers" while the husband sleeps around at the office?

Well, that's at least what Mad Men told me the 50s were like.

There was this BBC program called Electric Dreams, It made a family live in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.  Daily life in 70s Britain was much different than 70s America. this couple's idea of the 50s can't be even close to what life was really like.

So they developed a shared hobby and lifestyle and it had a positive effect on their relationship.

Well yes.

Yeah. The less sensationalist version of this is "couple finds better hobby than going to the pub."

It's a dippy cosplay hobby, but If they took up golf, or cooking classes or scat play, nobody would care.

Shut up, dog. You don't need to cast reality on every situation. Clearly it was the 50s that saved them.

So, instead of just treating her husband as a 50s wife would, they had to remodel the house, dress the part and drive the car?

I'm a mid-century nut myself (only 1960s, not 50s), and while my house has elements of it, I don't feel the need to dress in 60s clothing or cook in a 60s kitchen or knit an afghan.

These two are just attention whores who needed an avenue.  I can tell you that they don't give a hoot about their marriage.  If you need a gimmick to stay married...oh well, it's good to have a hobby you both like, I guess.  But it's still stupid.  When she's 60 in a house dress from the 50s, I can assure you that her husband won't be needing her darning skills.  He'll be out with a younger woman.

It's still stupid.  And a 50s housewife would be horrified at the clutter in that kitchen and the low cut neckline.

Nothing like re-enacting a period of time to ignite the flame of romance in a relationship.  Seems like this will be a long lasting solution instead of seeing some head shrinker.  If this doesn't solve the problem, maybe they should just go back further in time until he gets eaten by a T-rex and she can marry some other knuckle dragger.

Good thing for me, I've seen the film at so many midnight showings that you could shake Janet's tatas at me and I'd still wink at her (now) pancakes.

/she was pretty hot in that film

Percolators are the worst way to make decent coffee. Go real old school and get a coffee press. I love spending the night with my Polish friend because she has a coffee press. I get a great BJ along with my excellent coffee.
