How To Be A Good Wife - 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 wives should behave. Entertaining and charmingly illustrated, How to Be a Good Wife offers enduringly useful advice for all couples, from the newly engaged to those celebrating their golden anniversary.

Excerpts from How To Be A Good Wife:

  • It is a wife's duty to look her best. If you don't tidy yourself up, when you have done the bulk of the day's work, don't be surprised if your husband begins to compare you unfavourably with the typist at the office.
  • Don't forget that very true remark that while face powder may catch a man, baking powder is the stuff to hold him. 
  • After all is said and done, husbands are not terribly difficult to manage.
