Book Description

  • The more red-faced and bearded or impulsive a man, the more dark, calm, cool and quiet should his wife be; and vice versa.
  • Those very fleshy should not marry those equally so, but those spare and slim. A spare man is much better adapted to a fleshy woman than a round-favored man.
  • Two very beautiful persons rarely do or should marry; nor two extra homely.
