Need a good laugh? You'll enjoy these ideas on how to get a husband that were once considered good suggestions.

It's funny how everything changes with time. I mean, at one point people could by heroin as a cough suppressant. Now we know that's not such a good idea (and it's illegal). Or the idea that eating a lot of butter is good for you because it "lubricates" your arteries (Omg).

Well, thanks to the good people at The Chive, we now have a whole bunch of suggestions that were once thought of as "good advice" when it comes to getting a husband. According to The Chive, the magazine with this "great" article is from a 1958 issue of "McCall's."

On the cover of that magazine was a cover line for the article "129 WAYS TO GET A HUSBAND." The article included advice on "where to find him," how to let him know you're there," "how to look good to him," and other important info. The Chive has included ALL 129 tips of the article, which you can see at: TheChive.com. But we just picked out some of our favorite pieces of advice and included them below...
