Originally published in 1891, this hilarious (and informative) collection is a treasure trove of essential advice any man or woman, or couple, would be foolish to ignore.
From advice about how to find the perfect partner...
- Don't marry a villain.
- Don't marry a duke, or anyone who travels on his title.
- If money is your object, the older and uglier he is, the better.
- Avoid slovenly dressed girls or heedless men.
...to advice about how to wed...
- Don't propose on a wash-day, in the rain, at breakfast or in a tunnel.
- Marry at home or at church, in good form, without display.
...as well as general words of wisdom...Don't expect too much from your marriage. Don't cross your husband.
...Hildreth's Advice for Marriage is a delightful collection that is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago.
