BEING a 1950s-style housewife is the latest craze amongst slightly strange women. But do you have what it takes to be a ‘tradwife’? Find out with our quiz.
Your husband comes home exhausted after a long day at work. Do you:
A) Feign a bit of sympathy. You’ve had a knackering day yourself and he’s not exactly giving out foot rubs.
B) Have a piping hot meal ready and waiting for him, with an old fashioned on standby to wash it down. He’s been at the office after all, while you’ve had a delightful day of cooking, cleaning and looking after screaming kids.
One of your female friends tells you they’re getting a divorce. Do you:
A) Reassure her she’ll be okay and offer to help in any way that you can.
B) Look at her with a sneer of disgust and never speak to her again. She’s damaged your reputation by association, the harlot.
It’s time to redecorate the kitchen. Do you:
A) Flick through the Guardian weekend supplement then just paint everything cream because you’ve got a few tins left over from when you did the bathroom.
B) Swap out all of your modern gadgets for white goods that predate the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Someone points out that the tradwife movement has alt right connections. Do you:
A) Agree, recalling that this sort of lifestyle was promoted by the Third Reich.
B) Say you don’t understand politics and it’s better to let your husband tell you what to think about this sort of thing.
A woman’s place is…
A) Wherever she wants to be.
B) Wherever she wants to be, but preferably in a house her husband owns, with a white picket fence and a Triumph Herald in the driveway.
Mostly As: Sorry, looks like you’ve been brainwashed by modern society and its progressive ideas. Start reading Woman’s Realm and take an unhealthy interest in jam-making.
Mostly Bs: Congratulations, you’ve got the skewed worldview necessary for being a tradwife. Now stop doing online quizzes and get back to the kitchen.
