One income families,with wife at home supporting as many as five or fewer kids was normal. One income was adequate. It was baby boomer producing time. We had a do nothing President who golfed frequently who helped win World War II. The culture was conservative until Rock and Roll music enter the scene. There was a lot of talk about the Communist threat from Joe McCarty and friends. The Soviet Union was the major concern. We had the worry of the Atomic Bomb with people building bomb shelters. We became the most powerful country on earth the main reason being we were never invaded. It was a happy time for most people.

Well it helped the red scare along if that helps any. people became severely anti-communist and those who ran for office had "ousted" some people as communists, or accused the person they were running against of either being communist or supporting communism. McCarthy, if you know him, used this trick (claiming certain government officials and public office holders were communists) to get great political power.
