How to be Happy Though Married / Being a Handbook to Marriage, Edward John Hardy

How to be Happy Though Married / Being a Handbook to Marriage

An amazing book, written by the Reverend E.J. Hardy. Oscar Wilde praised it extravagantly: "It is a complete handbook to an earthly Paradise, and its author may be regarded as the Murray of matrimony and the Baedeker of bliss."
This book provides something really useful and thought-provoking, as well as entertaining, for anyone contemplating or living in the state of matrimony. 
"We strongly recommend this book as one of the best of wedding presents. It is a complete handbook to an earthly Paradise, and its author may be regarded as the Murray of Matrimony and the Baedeker of Bliss." – Pall Mall Gazette.

"The author has successfully accomplished a difficult task in writing a clever and practical book on the important subject of matrimony…. This book, which is at once entertaining and full of wise precepts, deserves to be widely read." – Morning Post.

"An entertaining volume…. The new guide to matrimonial felicity." – Standard, Leader.

"A clever, readable, and entertaining book…. This delicious book." – Literary Churchman.

"This most elucidatory treatise…. As a 'companion to the honeymoon,' this orange blossom, true-love-knot ornamented volume should no doubt be highly esteemed." – Whitehall Review.

"The book is tastefully got up, and its contents adapt it very well for a present to a young bride." – Queen.

"One of the cleverest, best written books on the subject we have read at any time. To girls contemplating marriage, the volume should be presented as a wedding gift…. Grave and gay, but never for a moment dull or tiresome. Each page sparkles with anecdote or suggestive illustration." – Ladies' Treasury.

"A highly ornamental yet handy, well printed, and admirably written volume." – The Lady.

"A rich store of entertaining anecdote, and full of thoughts beautiful, pious, and wise. Has a tasteful binding." – Bookseller.
