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. Number of pages: 96 Dimensions (approx.): H11.4 x W8.9 x D1.3cm

Description: The art of being a good husband is not an easy one. This little guide was written for the middle classes of the 1930s who were reading one of the first modern self-help books. Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example: 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. Don't criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.

Description: Thinking of becoming a wife? Well then, you had better do your research on just what it takes to perform such duties to a high standard! For example, how much wine do they need daily?
