Being single has changed a lot in the past 120 years. And yet, some advice for single women has remained constant: Women should choose wisely when they consider marriage, weighing the pros and cons of married and single life. If they decide to marry, they should build a marriage based on mutual affection and respect.
"How Well Does an 1899 Manual for Single Women Hold Up?" is from the September 01, 2017 Solo-ish section of The Washington Post. It was written by Jean R. Freedman and narrated by Sam Scholl.
