I guess I was objecting to the rediculous, outdated, and sexist advice.
Wives or women doesn't seem to matter when the problem is the idea that
females (wives or not) are magical sources of problems -- unless, of

When I see advice (sexist or not) regarding witchcraft or other made up
topics, I tend to also wonder what other basic facts they had wrong. It's
