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.
