Don'ts For Husbands
More than 1,000,000 copies sold!
Don'ts for Husbands is a facsimile of the original 1913 edition, containing hundreds of snippets of entertaining advice for a happy marriage. While some are quirkily of their time, and rich with fascinating insights into the history of relations between the sexes, many contain wisdom that rings true more than 100 years after they were written.
Inside you can find advice on topics such as habits, jealousy, household management, hobbies and even hints on finance. There is much wisdom to be taken from this little book to ensure matrimonial bliss:
'Don't forget to be your wife's best friend as well as her husband. True friendship in marriage does away with all sorts of trouble.'
'Don't insist upon having the last word. If you know when to drop an argument, you are a wise man.'
'No doubt you are a very clever fellow, and it is an education for her to listen to you, but she also may have some views worth mentioning.'
This charming pocket-sized edition is perfect as a Christmas stocking filler, or as a gift (along with the matching Don'ts for Wives) for newly-weds, engagements and anniversaries.
Blanche Ebbutt (née Berry) was born in 1866 in Hyde, Cheshire. Her two successful advice manuals, Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives, were published in 1913.
