I've been thinking alot about marriage lately

While putting away Christmas decorations, I came across my hope chest which contained a little book my grandmother gave me. It was published ages ago, but the advice still seems fitting:
Don't spend the best years of your life in thinking about nothing but money-getting.
Don't come in at any odd time and expect to find your dinner done to a turn.
Don't leave to your wife everything in connection with the education and upbringing of the children.
I showed it to Don once, hoping he'd read it, but he just laughed and handed it back to me. Perhaps if he'd read it, things would be different.
