A happy and successful marriage takes work. Don’ts for Wives, the companion to Don’ts for Husbands, includes snippets of entertaining advice for wives everywhere. Written by Blanche Ebbutt and Initially published by A&C Black in 1913 England, the advice provided in the book rings true today. Some great advice includes “Don’t be satisfied to let your husband work overtime to earn money for frocks for you. Manage with fewer frocks” and “Don’t be surprised, if you have married for money, or position, or fame, the you only get money, or position, or fame; love cannot be bought”. Don’ts for Wives is a wonderfully humorous and novel gift for engagements, weddings, and anniversaries. For the stylish woman, we recommend pairing Don’ts for Wives with Berlin Street Style. Or for the new mother, pair with How to Be a Hip Mama Without Losing Your Cool. We offer free shipping Australia-wide on all orders over $99.
