So she wasn't sitting around reading novels and/or having teas and toddies with a
lot of other wifies and pre-wifies, while the butler did and head servant did all these
other tasks?

(My grandfather, who was a chaplain in WWI, used to salute his
 bethrothed in his letters to her as Dear Wifey).

  Peter, most likely giving the cook orders, reviewing accounts, arranging flowers, hiring and firing staff, receiving guests, writing letters, etc. She was a CEO, but she seemed like an angel when Dad came home and everything was ordered and running smoothly! Diana

    I'm guessing that Freud's equating of the law with the father was<
    conditioned by bourgeoise Victorian family structure where the mother was
    the angel in the house and the father went out into the world, but why Julia
    Kristeva, a professional woman in today's world, adopts that paradigm is
    difficult to understand.

    So where was wifey doing all her angeling while the nanny was looking
    after the kiddies?

    Cheers,
