I thought it may have been a chronicle of an unlucky man who consistently chose Mrs. Wrong. The plural 'wives' suggested serial unhappiness.

Wives who rule their husbands, rule the entire house are wicked wives in my opinion.

Considering that I love crime books and crime shows, including a show called Deadly Women, my first thought when I read the title was that it would be about murderous wives.

Something involving witches and women, possibly with a generous helping of misogyny :P

Cruel women who used husbands for self gain and self centered, with no consideration for what negative impact their actions have on their husbands.

The first thing I thought of was the show "Desperate Housewives" and then the movie "Stepford Wives". I also started thinking about witches and the paranormal.
