Rules For Making a Husband Happy
.

—Show that you are anxious to avoid waste, and to be faithful in your department of labor.
.
—Do not neglect neatness of person and surroundings.
.
—Never speak slightingly or bitterly of or to your husband, especially in the presence of other people.
.
—When your feelings have been hurt, do not allow your thoughts to dwell upon the injury, but resolutely banish it from your mind, and do some kindness in return. 
.
—Speak gently always, and do not allow your voice to become sharp and loud. Control of the voice helps to control the temper.

.
—Try to do not only what your husband wishes in household matters, but also when and how he wishes.

[Thomas’s Farmer's Almanac]

It is excellent advice. I read it to my husband and he said "I can see how those things would make a husband happy." I need to work on a couple... haha
