When you marry him, Love him.
If he is honest, Honour him.
If he is generous, Appreciate him.
When he is sad, Cheer him.
When he is cross, Amuse him.
When he is talkative, Listen to him.
When he is quarrelsome, Ignore him.
If he is slothful, Spur him.
If he is noble,Praise him.
If he is jealous,Cure him.
If he cares not for pleasures,Coax him.
If he favours society, Accompany him.
If he does you a favour,Thank him.
When he deserves it, Kiss him.
Let him think how well you understand him.
But never let him know what you manage him.
This is a page from the diary of my father-in-law, dated December 1971.
He wrote it for my mother-in-law and I was given this, after my marriage.
I did not have the fortune to meet him as he passed away three years back. But this page, i feel is a gift from him which i will treasure for ever..
