What does the Kama Sutra say about a good wife?

Sir Richard Burton’s Kama Sutra says: 

A virtuous woman, who has affection for her husband, should act in conformity with his wishes as if he were a divine being.

Sir Richard Burton’s wife, Lady Isobel, wrote out her own “Rules for my Guidance as a Wife”:

#1. Let your husband find in you a companion, friend, and adviser, and confidante, that he may miss nothing at home; and let him find in the wife what he and many other men fancy is only to be found in a mistress, that he may seek nothing out of his home.
