Don'ts for Wives

Don'ts for Wives is a facsimile of the original 1913 edition, containing hundreds of snippets of entertaining advice for a happy marriage. While some are quirkily of their time, and rich with fascinating insights into the history of relations between the sexes, many contain wisdom that rings true more than 100 years after they were written.
Inside you can find advice on topics such as evenings at home, jealousy, food or even household management. There is much wisdom to be taken from this little book to ensure matrimonial bliss-
'Don't permit yourself to forget for a single instant that nothing is more annoying to a tired man than the sight of a half-finished laundry work.'
'Don't let him have to search the house for you. Listen for his latch-key and meet him on the threshold.'
'Don't nag your husband. If he won't carry out your wishes for love of you, he certainly won't because you nag him.'
This charming pocket-sized edition is perfect as a Christmas stocking filler, or as a gift (along with the matching Don'ts for Husbands) for newly-weds, engagements and anniversaries.
