Product Overview

Warm and funny, this humorous quotation collection heeds advice from famous men and women who have taken the plunge into matrimony. Quotes are divided by relationship issue--choosing a perfect mate, popping the question, the big day, the honeymoon, bedroom techniques, money issues, housekeeping, parenting, and fidelity--and offer useful and entertaining guidance for anyone contemplating or experiencing the varying states of marital bliss. This collection also draws from antique marriage manuals, ranging from Saint Augustine's fifth-century "Excellence of Marriage" to Anthony Cotterell's "The Expert Way of Getting Married" (1939), adding historical wit and wisdom to this clever compendium.
