· The Proper Time: there is nothing as tasking as selecting the time for weddings. Everyone wants it to be the perfect day. A lot has been said in various volumes regarding the time of the year, the influence of the seasons, etc., as determining the proper time to set for the wedding day. Circumstances must govern these things. It is best to avoid extremes of heat and cold. Very hot weather is debilitating, and below zero is uncomfortable.

· The Lady Should Select the Day—there is one element in the time that is of great importance, physically, especially to the lady. It is the day of the month, and it is hoped that every lady who contemplates marriage is informed upon the great facts of ovulation. It it is to her advantage to select a wedding day about fifteen or eighteen days after the close of menstruation in the month chosen, this is a good time as it is regarded as the safe period when conception cannot occur. In my opinion, it is not best that the first child should be conceived during the excitement or irritation of first attempts at congress; besides modest brides naturally do not wish to become large with child before the season of congratulation and visiting on their return from the "honeymoon" is over.

Again, it is asserted by many of the best writers on this subject, that the mental condition of either parent at the time of intercourse will be stamped upon the embryo hence it is not only best, but wise, that the first- born should not be conceived until several months after marriage, when the husband and wife have nicely settled in their new home

· The "Bridal Tour" is considered by many newly married couples as a necessary but then after the excitement and over work before and accompanying a wedding, the period immediately following should be one of rest. Again, the money expended on the ceremony and a tour of the principal cities, etc., might, in most cases, be applied to a multitude of after-life comforts of far more lasting value and importance. To be sure, it is not pleasant for the bride, should she remain at home, to pass through the ordeal of criticism and vulgar comments of acquaintances and friends, and hence, to escape this, the young couple feels like getting away for a time. Undoubtedly the best plan for the great majority, after this most eventful ceremony, is to enter their future home at once and there to remain in comparative privacy until the novelty of the situation is worn off.

· If the Conventional Tour is taken, the husband should remember that his bride cannot stand the same amount of tramping around and sight-seeing that he can. The female organs of generation are so easily affected by excessive exercise of the limbs which support them, that at this critical period it would be a foolish and cozily experience to drag a lady hurriedly around the country on an extensive and protracted round of sight-seeing or visiting. Unless good common-sense is displayed in the manner of spending the "honey-moon," it will prove very untrue to its name. In many cases it lays the foundation for the wife's first and life-long "backache."

· Patience this is the most important key ingredient in marriage. Do not expect magic to happen. Try as much as possible to be realistic in your expectation of each other. Should you find fault with the other person as many at times we tend to pretend, but after marriage the reality sets in and we may find it difficult to cope with. Learn to correct your partner and then wait patiently for them to adjust. Patience is the key.
