Old Farmer's 1877 Almanac

Here's some advice unearthed from the
Old Farmer's 1877 Almanac archives:

How to Make Your Husband Happy

  • Never speak slightingly of or to your husband in the presence of other people.
  • Do not neglect neatness of person and surroundings.
  • Speak gently always, and do not allow your voice to become sharp and loud.
How to Make Your Wife Happy

  • Treat your wife as politely and kindly as when you were wooing her.
  • Do not speak lightly of her cares and fatigues, but sympathize with her troubles.
  • Share your pleasures and cares, and show that you value her society and advice.


"For a happy marriage, never speak loudly to one another unless the house is on fire."
