Domestic Restrictions


Your concerns should be about your husband, children and household affairs – why do you need a job?


(at the left)

Even at this age I cannot rest.

Sister-in-law, this is not your parents’ home.


(on the right)

We have enough money; a woman from a good family does not work.


With your earnings you will become independent and wayward. A job means that you will be meeting and talking with other men.


If you break these restrictions, do not expect to obtain the happiness, peace and security of a housewife.
