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.
