Could you even imagine anyone thinking this way, today?  

Someone found an old magazine article from the ’50s,  called “129 Ways to Get a Husband.”  And a lot of the suggestions are just ridiculous or sexist or worse.

They’re all from a 1958 issue of the women’s magazine McCall’s,” which went out of print in 2002.

But, here they are – from almost four decades ago – the ways you might want to go “get your MRS.”  Yes, that’s what they called it, back then…

1.  “Get a job demonstrating fishing tackle in a sporting goods store.”

2.  “Get lost at a football game.”

3.  “Don’t take a job at a company run mostly by women.”

4.  “Learn to paint, [then] set up an easel outside an engineering school.”

5.  “Read the obituaries to find eligible widowers.” (!!!)

6.  “Wear a Band-Aid.  People always ask what happened.”

7.  “Stand in a corner and cry softly.  Chances are good that he’ll come over to find out what’s wrong.”  Deceive a gentleman?  Wow.

8.  “Get a sunburn.”  (???)
