I read the following quote in a book about the Depression. It was originally published in "Woman's Own" magazine on October 15, 1932:
"Never let your husband see you in a grubby apron, a bedraggled dressing gown, or a shabby working frock-- many a happy marriage has been wrecked because some foolish wife kept her prettiest garments for visitors and wore 'any old thing' about the house."
This is an intriguing statement to me. I recognize that there are appropriate clothes for different occasions. For example, we should not paint in our nicest outfits! But it also makes me think about how more spark could enter my marriage if I greeted my husband in something other than yoga pants and a t-shirt.
I know my husband has told me that he likes seeing me in make-up and jewelry. Would it really be so hard for me to dress up just for him, more than I currently do? I think I can make a greater effort!
What about you? Could dressing up more often spice up your marriage?
I'd love to hear about your experiences! :-)
