But today, every inch of a woman’s body is scrutinized, especially when it comes to weight.

I ended up with piles of these vintage magazines stacked up in cupboards in the garage.

The couple holds the tissue up to the light, and they see little pieces of wood in it. In some of the ads, the wife was cranky, and then it was their little girl.

Eventually, the whole family was affected by this scourge. After that, I got addicted to finding these old romance magazines from the ’30s and ’40s—“True Romance,” “True Story,” and “True Secrets”—as well as the homemaking magazines like “Woman’s Home Companion” and “Ladies’ Home Journal.” But the romance magazines were where I found the ads that really take the cake. The most common premise is that a woman does not want to offend a man.

In the late 19th century, magazines took over the advice and care of your family.
