Pick Your Perfect Partner

how to pick a mate

How to Pick a Mate
The Guide to a Happy Marriage
Adams and Packard
1946

Finding the perfect match is a tough job. This book has all the quizzes, testimonials, case studies, and facts, to help you make a good decision about a life mate. Sample chapters include: Attracting the one you want; Is it Love – or Infatuation? and my particular favorite: Do you Frighten Possible Mates Away?  They also have a wide variety of quizzes and checklists to make sure you are not headed down the wrong path. In case anyone is keeping score, I think I qualify as an “unhappy” wife.

How to make your Marriage Exciting
Hunter and Hunter

“Honey, that pocket protector does look cool!”

“I really do think this is the year for the Detroit Lions”

“Ice cream is healthy. It’s made with milk.”

Bradford
1970

Obviously, being a perfect wife take many books. Barbara has all the advice for you ladies trying to “please” your husband. Evidently, it is your job to make sure the decorating suits his needs. There is a ton of advice to make sure you have manly looking space for him and not overwhelm him with too much femininity in your decorating. He needs a “charming atmosphere that relaxes him”. I think Barbara needs to stick to fiction.

I would rather have a charming atmosphere that relaxes me. A good chair, a good book and a nice cocktail would be a great start.
