How To Be A Good Husband - Gift Book

Product Description
Marriage can be a series of humorous miscommunication, a power struggle, or a diplomatic nightmare! Men and women have long struggled to figure each other out, and the misunderstandings continue long after the wedding day!

This hardback book, originally published in the 1930s for middle-class British couples, is filled with witty and charming observations on how husbands should behave. Entertaining and charmingly illustrated, How to Be a Good Husband offers enduringly useful advice for all couples, from the newly engaged to those celebrating their golden anniversary. 

Excerpts from How To Be A Good Husband:

  • Don't squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the top instead of from the bottom. This is one of the small things of life that always irritates a careful wife. 
  • Don't think that your wife has placed waste-paper baskets in the rooms as ornaments. 
  • Don't tell your wife terminological inexactitudes, which are, in plain English, lies. A woman has wonderful intuition for spotting even minor departures from the truth. 
  • Do cultivate the habit of coming down to breakfast with a smile. Remember that as the head of the house, it is your duty to see that everyone starts the day in an atmosphere of happiness.
