The Wedding Guest

Book cover
THERE is no relation in life so important--none involving so much ofhappiness or misery, as that of husband and wife. Yet, how rarely isit, that the parties when contracting this relation, have largeexperience, clear insight into character, or truly know themselves!In each other, they may have the tenderest confidence, and for eachother the warmest love; but, only a brief time can pass ere theywill discover that the harmonious progression of two minds, each ofwhich has gained an individual and independent movement is notalways a thing of easy attainment. Too soon, alas! is felt a jar ofdiscord--too soon self-will claims an individual freedom of actionthat is not fully accorded; and unless there is wisdom andforbearance, temporary or permanent unhappiness is sure to follow. Much has been written on the true relation of married partners, andwe cannot do a better service to the bride and bridegroom, than bygathering words of wisdom on this subject from all sources withinour reach, and presenting them in as attractive a form as possible.And this we have done in the present volume, to which, as thetitle-page indicates, we bear only the relation of editor. In itwill be found pictures of life, serious counsel, earnest admonition,and hints and suggestions, which, if wisely followed, will keep thesky bright with sunshine, or scatter the gathering clouds ere theybreak in angry storms. May this "WEDDING GUEST" receive as warm awelcome as we desire.
