Marriage Minded Collection Development

Marriage is one my favorite topics here at ALB, and I encourage you to do a quick search in your catalog and see what awfulness bursts forth. I came across a bunch of marriage titles, and none of them was clever enough to warrant a separate post, so I thought I would toss them together in a nice pile of awfulness for your consideration.  Nothing is particularly horrible, just dated and worthy of weeding since the references and data are way too old to be of use to the general user.  Click here and here for some awesome previous posts on marriage and weddings.   Enjoy!
