God's own time, and, let me add, without your seeking it, the man whom 

you can make happy will present himself and propose to make you his 

wife, if it be God's will that you should become one. 

 

Here are two very important points for your consideration: First, that 

it should be your constant endeavor to 

 

 

MAKE YOUR HUSBAND HAPPY; 

 

and, second, that before you consent to marry him, you should 

ascertain that he has those qualifications that will secure your 

happiness. It most nearly concerns yourself that you do your duty to 

God and your neighbor at all times, so that it becomes your habit; and 

you will find it much easier, and safer, too, to do it every day 

rather than on only particular occasions; for this would require a 

special effort, and for the time, perhaps, put you into a state of 

excitement, which, in all probability, would be followed by a 

depression of spirits. What you should rather aim at is a uniformly 

cheerful state of mind, resulting from a conscious and confident 

dependence on Providence. If your husband knows from experience that 

such is your character, he cannot fail, provided he be worthy of you, 

to be content and happy. 

 

 

IT IS THE NATURE OF YOUNG WOMEN 

 

to be affectionate, and it is pleasant and usual for them to have 

several dear friends, enjoying more or less of their confidence. Among 

these may be included some of their male acquaintance. Now, while they 

may esteem each of these as they would a dear cousin, they should know 

and act upon the knowledge that it is only to _one_ they can give 

their unlimited confidence and individual affection as a wife. It is 

the height of cruelty and wickedness for either a man or a woman to 

trifle with another's affection. Such base conduct has cost many a 

young woman her health and peace, and even her life, and cannot, 

therefore, be too much depreciated and avoided.
