Product description

The bounteous pleasures of married life have been endured by stoical, ingenious men and women for millennia. 'How to be Happy Though Married' is a compendium of their hard-won wisdom, offering advice for any conceivable conjugal conundrum, from the potential of a wife to wander (you might consider stealing her shoes, a la the Ancient Greeks) to the avoidance of a drunk husband's amorous advances. Why suffer or rejoice alone when this book revealing the advice, observations and witty rejoinders of Jane Austen, Plutarch, Shakespeare, Trollope and Einstein could be your constant companion?
