This is the best general treatise on marriage, in all its aspects, that I have seen in many years. Mr. Himes has conducted a course in Preparation for Marriage at Colgate; he is the author of Practical Birth Control Methods. And in this book he has brought together his findings, in response to the need of young people everywhere. Intensively realistic, facing the economic and psychological aspects of marriage as well as the sexual and personality problems. He strikes a sound middle path, facing the facts of modern practice and theory, weighing the pros and cons, and giving his answers in straight from the shoulder manner. Problems before and after marriage, budget, insurance etc.
