Another slam dunk for the Don'ts for Wives/Husbands/Mothers series. I love the advice for older women who marry a younger man--"You may pray for death" (to release you from the pain of being married to someone who will still be in his prime after you have lost your looks and libido.) This book also cautions condemns child brides, or any woman under age 18 getting married. For some reason, I didn't expect this relatively progressive viewpoint from a book of this time period.
