"Don't look at things solely from a man's point of view. Put yourself in your wife's place and see how you would like some of the things she has to put up with." Originally published in 1913, Don'ts for Husbands provides advice that's as equally compelling as its companion, Don'ts for Wives. In this comical, enlightening, and historical booklet, Blanche Ebbutt shifts sides of the marital equation, delivering advice, "some of which still rings true today,” to help shape a proper and successful husband. Offering tips on "General Habits," "Jealousy," "Food," and many more timeless topics, Don'ts for Husbands is the perfect gift for anyone interested in the evolution of society, and who ultimately loves to laugh. In addition to Don'ts for Wives, a third installment in this series, Don'ts for Mothers, is also available from Cosimo Classics.

The art of being a good husband is not an easy one. This little guide was written for the middle classes of the 1930s who were reading one of the first modern self-help books. Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example:Don’t squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the top instead of from the bottom. This is one of the small things of life that always irritates a careful wife.Don’t think that your wife has placed waste-paper baskets in the rooms as ornaments.Don’t tell your wife terminological inexactitudes, which are, in plain English, lies. A woman has wonderful intuition for spotting even minor departures from the truth.Do cultivate the habit of coming down to breakfast with a smile. Remember that as the head of the house, it is your duty to see that everyone starts the day in an atmosphere of happiness.Don’t criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.

Following the success of Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives a brand new old collection of advice for couples from courtship to the honeymoon. On looking for a partner in life: "Don't single out a girl if you do not intend to propose to her, for the way in which your conduct is regarded will be greatly influenced by your banking account" On The Question: "Don't rush but chose an auspicious moment, A man who tries to propose when a servant is expected to arrive with a scuttle of coals is not likely to meet with much favour." On the Engagement: "Don't allow awkward pauses to break the conversation because your thoughts and eyes are hungrily trying to follow your lover, who is manfully assisting the hostess." On Planning The Event: "Don't forget that elderly bridesmaids in youthful frocks and girlish hats are ridiculous to the unthinking, and pathetic to those who look below the surface." On Gifts: "Don't be thoughtless - Good silver is always a joy, but remember the young wife with only one servant will have to rub up her own silver backed brushes and sweetmeat dishes if she wants them to look nice." The Honeymoon: "Don't indulge in a long honeymoon. Undisturbed possession soon palls, and man was made for something more virile than perpetual billing and cooing."

Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains advice by turns delightfully arcane and timelessly true, for example:It is a wife’s duty to look her best. If you don’t tidy yourself up, when you have done the bulk of the day’s work, don’t be surprised if your husband begins to compare you unfavourably with the typist at the office.Don’t forget that a wife can always set the standard of behaviour for the home. If she allows laxities of dress or conversation at the table she will soon find that they become a fixed procedure.Don’t forget that very true remark that while face powder may catch a man, baking powder is the stuff to hold him.Don’t criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.After all is said and done, husbands are not terribly difficult to manage.

Louisa and Gilles love each other. There's a problem in paradise, though: their marriage is going nowhere. Together, they decide to explore polyamory, the idea that it's possible to have more than one lover--and more than one love. They fall in love with another couple and, embarking on a life-changing course, try to make it work as a quad. Their journey liberates them from the constraints of their unhappy marriage and propels them into a world where they embrace a new way of loving. But this liberation comes with a price. They are challenged in ways they didn't expect, and the experiment takes them to a place they didn't anticipate. They must learn to accept a new understanding of relationships, each other and themselves.With raw and intimate prose, Louisa Leontiades unflinchingly shares her story, with all its drama, passion, joy and conflict as she and her husband stumble, make mistakes, and look for a path to a sustainable polyamorous future. This is not a how-to manual or a guide to polyamory. It is the true story of four ordinary people who challenged monogamy to pursue a utopia of limitless love.
