38. Some pieces of advice for a woman who wants to marry.
- During the first evening that you spend with the man you want to marry always agree with him. Drink what he offers; go where he invites you to go, etc. But at the very last moment say to him: 'Oh, no! I have changed my mind!' Your partner will regard you as a reasonable, thoughtful woman.
- Some men pretend that they don't want to marry saying that they haven't enjoyed themselves yet, and that marriage for them is like a yoke. Never pay attention to it. You know much better what that stupid monster really needs.
- It would be good if you often wept. When the man comes to visit you, you should meet him with tear drops on your face - you haven't seen him for ages! When he comes you should weep because you are so happy to see him. When he goes home you should sob violently because he leaves you. Your prospective husband must see your sufferings and be aware of his fault that can be redeemed only by marriage.
- Never confess that you have a mother. Your mother can congratulate you after the wedding day.
- You mustn't earn more money than your fiancé. To earn more money than he is a cowardly thing. Only prostitutes can do so.

- I loved you at first sight and I can't overcome this feeling. I'll go upstairs to my bedroom and if you wish follow me and take me!

Son: No, I haven't!
