Is infidelity always wrong? In this volume, you won’t find a single answer to your questions about marriage; you will find hundreds.

A fascinating collection of marriage-related wisdom and wit from a rich variety of sources. And always remember the African proverb: Never marry a a woman with bigger feet than your own.
