Trent and the Duties of Husbands

My other work allows the great blessing of reading the most exhilarating books of all time: catechisms.

This tidbit from Trent is submitted for your edification:

"The husband should also be constantly occupied in some honest pursuit with a view to provide necessaries for the support of his family and to avoid idleness, the root of almost every vice.
  He is also to keep all his family in order, to correct their morals, and see that they faithfully discharge their duties."

  1. I wonder how "necessaries" may be defined. I think a dishwasher may rank right up there :)
