I was thinking this morning about parties we used to go to and dinner dances which were popular in the 60s and 70s.The ladies were often lumped together whilst the men gathered in the kitchen or at the bar.The main socialising was between the women and even though I knew many of these men for years I rarely had a personal conversation with them or really got to know them in the way I knew the wives.
Was this usual or just a N Irish thing?
Also remember being quite shocked when husband's country cousin had an engagement party and the women were ushered into the good room and didn't meet the men at all!
