Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Offers...not-so-outdated tips on achieving marital bliss, from not making him jealous to not laughing when she asks to drive the car.”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

“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
