1811 Slang Pertaining to Cohabitation



1811 Slang Pertaining to Cohabitation
~ 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue 
 
“He always was a small man. Made smaller by his wife.”
~ Emma (2009 movie)

“If you cannot get the right kind of business partner, marry a good honest wife.”
~ Around the Tea Table by T. De Witt Talmage (1875)

“Why should she be rewarded for gratifying her own inclination in marrying the man of her choice? We repeat, that we cannot exactly perceive why, when the union of a couple of lovers, in many cases, adds to the happiness, honour, and glory of the married pair alone, their friends should think it a duty to levy on themselves these contributions; so often inconvenient to the givers, and not much cared for by the receivers.”
~ The Ladies' Guide to True Politeness and Perfect Manners or, Miss Leslie's Behaviour Book
by Eliza Leslie (American 1864)
