Really, how can anyone be so stupid, so insane to wish those dark ages back? I guess the OP is a sad sack of (i better censor it) who never encountered real life, was raised by possible backward thinking inbreds in some rural redneck pieve of country and his little smushed brain doesn't understand the 21st Century. I feel really sad for you

Im sorry if i piss off a lot of feminists and womens liberation people but i gotta speak my mind.
50 or 60 years ago when wives stayed home raised the kids took care of the shopping housework ect things n my opinion were a lot simpler.
when people got married back then they took their weddng vows seriously and they stayed married 9 tmes outta 10 for life .
now a days women are expected to go out and work and still raise the family and do everything else as well....
the world wide divorce rate is higher then ever . a lot of women and men now fear love and commitment and some avoid the whole issue all together ...
you got more and more cheating spouses , ect.
yes ll be the frst one to admit that im extreamly old fashined and outdated for id much prefer to stay home and raise the famiy ect yet. but being a divorced woman with kids in modern times im expected to go out and work or at the very least get an education, now im not complaining about being a student.
what im complaining about are sociates expentations of the modern woman..
its too much....
where the hell is the MAN who is willing to take responsiblty for his actions take care of the WOMAN who for as long as historys been kept cared for her ,is strong when shes at her weakest . and simply cherished her .
im sure theres bond to bea few of this type left in the world but their used to supressing it. because of the motto
" i dont need a man what ever a man can do women can do better.
thoughts and comments are appreciated ...

I miss the old way of life. When everyone was happy, people dated, flowers were standard for any woman you took out, women were more feminine, chivalry wasn't dead, you said hi to your neighbor, people helped each other, lewd behavoir and language was unheard of. The list could go on forever.
That kind of society has been demonized by the "modern times".

Maybe a little harsh on the OP? Thing's were never perfect and won't ever be perfect but even back then women were not domestic slaves. Women to my knowledge use to get together and talk amongst other things in their community. They could leave the home, they were not slaves at all.
If you wan't to talk about domestic slaves, lets talk about cell phones with GPS tracking. The recording of conversations and in house/store/street monitors. The only difference is now that we are on the road to enslaving eachother but most people are to blind to see that.
Big brother has become you, me, that guy over there and his niece or anyone with a phone camera and a facebook account. I think if people were to actually wake up to the fact they would perhaps maybe say...wow my actions are all subject to interpretation and judgement from 3rd parties.
At this point one could argue... Being a stay at home parent is potentially the best thing going considering (with regards to opression). Give technology another twenty years when your face is recognized by sensors and tracked alongside nobody even knows what else.
