                                              *Daily Life in America*
Women were the ones who had to cook and clean. They had dinner on the table before their husbands came home from work. That lets them know that their wives are concerned for their needs.
Divorce was not in question because of societal pressure for one thing. You were only to get married and stay married. Moms back then were younger than todays. After dinner the WHOLE family would sit and watch TV. There was hardly anything back then. For an example there was no phones, no steroes, no vidoes ganes, no MALLS and *GASPS*, NO COMPUTERS. Can you believe this? I would'nt be able to last a day in their time.
