Fox News to women: Stop acting like a princess and please your husbands because you're too old to get another

Fox News has some sage advice for women: get married by 30 and keep your hubby happy because you’re too old after that to find another one.

Hat tip to ThinkProgress for flagging this nifty Fox News segment, “Husband Appreciation: Sage Advice For Wives.”

In case you don’t have time to read their whole article, here’s the best part:

The controversial author criticized today’s women for “acting like such an entitled princess” and prioritizing careers ahead of their families. Men, Patton told the Fox hosts, must be appreciated and respected, perhaps with a drink at the end of a long work day or gratitude and kindness. After all, should a woman alienate her husband, she’ll spend the rest of her life searching for a suitable replacement.

“If you are in your mid-30s or older the idea that you’re going to find yourself another husband, almost impossible,” Patton predicted. “And if you don’t believe me ask your maiden aunt, she will tell you when she’s done feeding the cats.”


No word on whether Susana Martinez, an avid Fox News watcher and occasional guest on the show is now reconsidering her relationship with husband Chuck.  Chuck previously disclosed that he does most of the cooking in the family, taking up bologna sandwiches as a mainstay after Martinez became a busy candidate and later governor.
