What makes a good wife? Is it cooking, cleaning, raising the kids and having great sex? Dr. Phil says too few couples understand what it means to be a "Mrs." He delves into the role of the wife in 2005. 

 

 

Looking for a Stepford Wife?

Grant says his wife of seven years needs some "wife lessons." He wants a cleaner house, better meals and a sexier spouse. Kelly says her husband's constant criticism and the pressure to be the perfect wife makes her feel like a failure. 

 

"I'm never going to be good enough," she fears.

Will he be the queen of his domain?

  

Update: How are Grant and Kelly now?

 


  

The Perfect Wife?

Diana says a good wife can hold the baby, answer the phone, correct homework, make dinner and feed the dog — all at the same time! She also says women must serve their men instead of trying to balance a career with family.   

 

"Men want to come home and have dinner on the table," she says.
