Publisher Comments:

Real advice on courting, marriage, sex, and morality that has turned seriously funny with age

Just as she should be ever alert to keep the quantity of sex as low as possible, the wise bride will pay equal attention to limiting the kind and degree of sexual contacts.

Learn all this and so much more in Marriage & Love, a gem of Victorian advice on courtship and marriage, immoral conduct, and what to look for in a spouse. Here is a potpourri of counsel on such matters as wooing and courting; determining the character of a potential mate by hair color, eye color, nose type, laugh, and height; how to dress up, spruce up, and be on the alert; and encouraging—and avoiding—sex with your husband.

Synopsis:

These Victorian pearls of wisdom for women on courtship and marriage, immoral conduct, what to look for in a spouse, and how to approach, or avoid, sexual relations with the husband, are often hilarious.
