Description:
The companion to Don'ts for Wives, this book is a facsimile edition of the original book published by A&C Black in 1913 England, containing hundreds of snippets of entertaining advice for a happy marriage, which rings true almost one hundred years after they were written. These reissued books are ideal holiday stocking stuffers, or gifts for weddings, engagements, and anniversaries.

"Offers both archaic and not-so-outdated tips on achieving marital bliss, from not making him jealous to not laughing when she asks to drive the car." —"Vanity Fair," April 2008

"Words of wisdom for a happy marriage from nearly a century ago...The advice comes from a set of guidebooks on marriage written on the eve of the First World War...Penned by Blanche Ebbutt in 1913, they were first published at a time when women stayed at home while their husbands went out to work. Times have changed since then, but the advice could be considered as relevant today as ever."—"The Daily Mail," May 2007

Some sample "Don'ts": "Don't" slouch: No one who cares for a man likes to see him acquire a slouching habit.
"Don't" insist upon having the last word. If you know when to drop an argument, you are a wise man.
"Don't" give up cricket, or football... or whatever outdoor sport you have been accustomed to just because you are married. Athletics will keep you from becoming flabby.
