Are Wives Grateful For Their Husbands?

I never go to Orthodox homes for a meal where the husband expresses contempt for the wife but about a third of the time (though never in Chabad), I see the wife express her contempt for her husband’s looks, his kiddush, his clumsy way making the table, etc.

Do wives today ever say to their husbands, “Please, I have a headache tonight, please take the Guatemalan maid servant?” Or are they less understanding than during Torah times?

Darren: “That’s a great fantasy, but the Jewish wives pick the most hideous help, so that there isn’t even that urge.”

I’ve noticed that. Latino women are often hot in their teens but rarely afterward.
