Excerpt from Husbands and Wives
The inspiration for this book is derived from my long experience in the courts. This has brought me into direct contact with the old, dusty, tangled web of the marriage relation. To the disinterested observer, it is evident that the married pair themselves are responsible for al most every case of divorce. From my point of vantage, I saw what those with but one experi ence could not see, how the obstacles to happi ness in marriage might have been avoided, and I felt that could I make them see it, the in creasingly difficult problem of marriage and divorce would, in great part, be solved.
So, with the highest ideal for the future in crease of happiness for the human race, I began this story of Husbands and Wives. As the work progressed, I found myself constantly in danger of losing this high ideal. But, as science is built upon the truth as gained from actual experience, and as that is the only safe founda tion upon which to build, I have struggled to present, not merely the facts, but the spirit of what my experience has brought to me.
