Do women need lessons on how to be good wives? And should Commonwealth history be taught in schools? Plus are christmas parties a waste of time and money?

At 1 Do women need lessons on how to be good wives?
In India they've started running courses for brides to be because they apparently don't know how to be the perfect partner. And as we all know...what happens in India eventually makes its way here!
So do you know how to put on a sari or cook a mouth watering dish? If you don't, would you consider such a course? Or is this again further evidence of the unfair pressure from men and their mums for women to be the 'perfect wife'? And what about the men? I can't believe that they couldn't do with a bit of training themselves...

After 2 - Should Commonwealth history be taught in schools? Do your children know enough about Asian history? Would it help give youngsters a sense of identity?

After 2.30 - Are Christmas parties a waste of time and money? Do you enjoy them or do you feel pressure to attend because if you don't you get called anti social?
