While far from modern advice, the author makes excellent points on marriage. To respect the man you married, but to first learn about him before jumping into a wedding. To do things for your husband, but never to the point you'll feel angry if he doesn't notice everything you do. Of course its chock full of sexism. But to see the advice a young woman was given 160 years ago makes it fascinating enough to look over the antiqidated things, such as give your husband first choice in all indulgences. Surprisingly, there are plenty of ageless tidbits in this book.
