    DescriptionThe more red-faced and bearded or impulsive a man, the more dark, calm, cool and quiet should his wife be; and vice versa. Those very fleshy should not marry those equally so, but those spare and slim. A spare man is much better adapted to a fleshy woman than a round-favored man. Two very beautiful persons rarely do or should marry; nor two extra homely. Learn all this and much, much more in Marriage and Love, a gem of Victorian wisdom on courtship and marriage, immoral conduct, and what to look for in a spouse. The ideal funny gift book for newlyweds or brides-to-be, it includes a potpourri of advice on such matters as wooing and courting; determining the character of a potential mate by hair color, eye color, nose type, laugh, and height; tips on encouraging and avoiding sex with your husband; how to dress up, spruce up, and be on the alert; and, of course, the acceptable length and frequency of unavoidable sexual encounters. Includes essential advice on: *Wooing and courting*Determining the character of a potential mate by hair color, eye color, nose type, laugh, and height*Tips on avoiding sex with your husband*The evils of novels and the theater*The dangers of over-corseting* HowHow to dress up, spruce up, and be on the alert.
