    That’s all I want, a good stable career, a wife, 2-3 kids, nice house, and a dog, I know there isn’t a dog here but still.

    Doting wife on the left, obedient daughter on the right. Dudes in the center of the action. Couldn’t get more 1950s.

    Yes, that’s when only white male got the good jobs. Everyone else needed not apply. Don’t fantasize the horrible 1950s.

    “Janice, now go stand on the grass, in your heels, and pretend to cut the cake. Katie and Tommy, get in the pool, knee deep, max. Rob, stoop down next to Tommy, near the red and white floaty. Hold positions… and 1..2..3!”

    As 20 something living in Australia, I wonder how common was such lifestyle in the back US in the 50s.

    Was it only an idealisation? Limited only to the rich? Or was everyone experiencing such luxury e.g big house with big backyard and pool as something common?
