Marriage Advice from 1886

Dears readers,

Let your love be stronger than your hate.

Learn the wisdom of compromise for it is better to bend a little than to break.

Believe the best rather then the worst.

People have a way of living up or down to your opinion of them.

Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies kindnesses you bestow on your friends.

Please hand this down to your children and your children’s children: The more things change the more they are the same.
